Hello;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
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.
Thanks

{QUESTION} Hi There I ve been having sex for two and a half months now and i have been taking the morning after pill almost 3 times a week because we don t want to make out using condoms. Problem is...i haven t seen my period as i know it in about a month and my vagina was spotting brown or dark blood once or twice a month. We decided to stop using the morning after pill but still i would like to know why the brown blood and how long will it take for my normal menstrual cycle to be back.

Hi, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex but he didn t ejaculate inside me. Also, he penetrated but not so deep so my hymen didn t break. I was scared and we stopped. But after some research, I found out that there are possibilities of getting pregnant without breaking the hymen. As a precaution, I took Nordette as an ECP, as there s none sold here in the Philippines. I took my first 4 pills on June 1, 2:30PM, 29hrs after the deed, and took my second dose of 4 pills on June 2, 2:30AM. It s been 4 days since the last intake and I have only experienced slight nausea for a short period of time after the 2nd dose. There is still no withdrawal bleeding and I m afraid that the pill isn t working on me. I also have an irregular period and I ve been delayed for almost 3 months before the said intercourse. How will I now that Nordette is working? What will I next do if I don t bleed within the next week? Thanks!

I got married last year. My wife & I are having sex regularly. During a recent gynac visit the Doctor said that still the hymen is intact in her. I need to enter more deep & break it as soon as possible. Is that right? But all these days we had enjoyed our sexual act (both of us). I have good erection all times. Is is really required to break it?

Dear Doctor, I would sincerley like to know what it is I'am currently experiencing. I had gotten close with my boyfriend recently and he inserted his penis into my vagina and made slow movements. He did not fully penetrate, however i noticed blood on the sheet. We did not do anything thereafter as I was suprised. I have read about the Hymen and its location and want to find out if there is a possiblilty I may have broken my hymen with such slow movement to the vagina I'am really concerned. If it means I have does that mean I will never bleed again during intercourse as I hope to.i have irregular periods.while going for treatement whether doctors can find out the hymen broken.?
