Effects of sex
This weekend I had full-on sex for the first time and as expected I felt a little sensitive afterwards. One thing that just bothers me is that since Sunday, we're now on Wednesday, I've been having my period, totally out of cycle. I'm not supposed to start for another 2 weeks.... Could this be an after-effect of the sex or should I consult my doctor? Please advise...

This bleeding is probably due to your hymen breaking and is not a period.
