A week ago I had I unprotected sex with my

Patient: A week ago I had I unprotected sex with my spouse. A few day ago I had light pink spotting then it became heavy bleeding like a regular period now it’s settling down. My period isn’t due until another week. What could be wrong?

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.The bleeding could be an early menstrual cycle as implantation bleeding of a possible pregnancy will only be a pinkish spotting lasting for a few hours and can never get heavy like a period. It could be your early cycles due to causes like stress and hormonal changes. However, do a pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.Hope this helped.Regards
