Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Blood after sexual intercourse is usually related to mild trauma to the genitalia that can occur during intimacy.
It would resolve spontaneously and does not usually require any treatment.

Treatment is only necessary if there are any tears in the vagina which would not be likely.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

Hi, bleeding post intercourse is not an indicator of pregnancy.

Symptoms and signs of pregnancy would start 2 to 3 weeks after conception and may include fatigue, nausea, delayed period, dizziness and mild abdominal discomfort

Would bleeding accur with any sort of stds

Bleeding can occur with STDs if the genitalia becomes extremely inflamed, but again these would not present immediately and cannot be responsible for an acute episode of bleeding.
Every infection has an incubation period, this is the time between which the person is exposed to the bacteria or virus and the time of onset of symptoms.
The incubation period is days, at least 3 to 4 days, so the bleeding would not be a sign or symptom of an acute infection.

The symptoms of an STD infection vary according to the STD involved but generally would be vaginal discharge, discomfort on urination and in some cases abdominal pain.
