Was on birth control for long. Got bleeding during intercourse. Due to birth control?

My husband and I went off birth control 2 months ago after being on for 7 years. We have not been using protecting but I did get my period last month a week early and this month after 19 days (counting from when the last cycle started) I started to bleed during intercourse but it did not last the entire day. Then a few days later we had sex again and I had a little bleeding after we were done is this something to worry about or is it just my body getting used to being off the pill? (I m 25)

It is very common after using the birth control for years, to have altered menstrual bleeding on stopping its use,
This is because the hormonal effects take time to wear off.
However, bleeding after intercourse is definitely not normal.
It could point to some local lesion on the cervix
I would advise you to go for a check up for post coital bleeding.
Take care.
