Usually spotting after sex can be due to hymenal tear in first timers and in case of perineal tear due to sex.There can be a dark or clotted blood in first 2-3 days after periods which is collected blood.See if you have fresh blood spotting or dark brown and accordingly consult a doctor to rule out tear or injury.If you have missed periods or spotting more than a week and fear pregnancy you can do a pregnancy test at home to rule out.
