What can spotting after intercourse indicate?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... Hi! I am 28 and I lost my virginity three weeks ago! My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex. Within five days to be exact, I notice spotting on my panties! However, the spotting only lasted three days and then it seemed like it was my period. The bleeding then became a light flow for another three days. After the bleeding stopped I began to feel cramps on my abdominal and lower back! Its been three weeks already and I'm still experiencing cramping! I've noticed tenderness on my breast as well. So is this something a women goes through when they lose there virginity or could this be a sign of pregnancy? How long would I have to wait to take a pregnancy test?

Thanks Dear for your question,

If you're premenopausal and you have vaginal bleeding after sex once in a while, it probably isn't something to get too worried about. Vaginal bleeding after sex could indicate cervical cancer, but if you've had normal results on routine Pap tests, it's more likely that the bleeding results from a noncancerous (benign) condition.

If you're postmenopausal, however, vaginal bleeding of any sort is abnormal and needs to be evaluated to find the cause. you can as well do a pregnancy test to satisfy your mind okay.
