Why have you not returned to your health acre provider? Please do so asap. You need to be assessed why this is happening, and then treat you.

Why can't you use a condom, or unless you have HIV or another blood bourne disease there is no reason why you can't have sex whilst bleeding.

Usually the treatment is 7 days of Oestrogen tablets, but a doctor or family planning nurse need to assess you.
