Thanks for the query.

After completion of the periods also sometimes minimal spotting can be noted.
It will usually subside soon and no need to worry about it.
As you had intercourse in the safe period the possibility of pregnancy is very less and also implantation bleeding will not be shown that much early.
So don't worry that can be because of hormones.
If the post-coital spotting repeats in future better to get examined once to rule out other possible local causes like cervical erosion etc.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
