its possible you just irritated things.....i would wait a little longer to have sex...hope you feel better....
You aren't healed yet. Just because your bleeding stops doesn't mean you're good to go.
Your cervix is full of blood vessels that need time to heal. Sex can irritate the cervix and lead to bleeding. There are a lot of reasons to not have sex before the 6 weeks is up. Infection, damaging the cervix, bleeding, et cetera.
Guessing you are just in pp recovery still.
you need to wait to be cleared from your ob/gyn for sex, they say 6-8 weeks for a reason...not only are you not fully healed but you are most fertile right now!
Sex can iritate the uterus which is not fully shrunken and healed. It is still involuting (shrinking) and that could be the cramping. If you tore at all, the pressure could have reopened the wound causing the bleeding.
I bled until 5.5 weeks and just had no interest in sex for awhile after that.
