Welcome to ehealthforum,
If this was your first time intercourse, then the bleeding that you experienced after intercourse could have been due to hymen rupture. The light bleeding/spotting that you had after about a week from the intercourse could have been probable implantation bleeding. You should have considered taking emergency contraception within 48 hours of the intercourse if it was unprotected to help in preventing pregnancy. The delay in periods along with your other symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. If you do not start with periods within 10 days of expected period dates or if you develop any new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy, or if you get abnormal periods, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you intend to remain sexually active, consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact.
Take care.
