Welcome to ehealthforum,
The pink spotting/blood tinged discharge that you describe after intercourse could suggest possibilities like vaginal infections, internal injury/trauma, cervical erosion or dysplastic changes, uterine fibroids, endometrial polyps, endometritis, ovarian cysts, hormonal derangements affecting the bleeding pattern, anemia, pregnancy (if there has been spontaneous tubal recanalization, pregnancy chances are possible), etc. It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the abnormal vaginal spotting that you describe without examining you. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause for the abnormal vaginal spotting that you describe. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area. Avoid introduction/insertion of foreign objects into vagina. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
Take care.
