  • I bled for six months after I had my first son. They told me it was because I had taken the birth control shot in the hospital after I had him. We had sex too soon after my son was born and I guess that's why it didn't stop. My husband went on a vacation for a week and it got better and lighter. We had to quit having sex for about two weeks to make the bleeding stop completely and for me to get back on a normal cycle. So in short, yes, the sex can cause the bleeding.
