    early bleeding after sex on pill

    hi all. so, me and my boyfriend have sex about once/twice a week. we've had a monogamous relationship for over two years. this past saturday we had sex twice in a 3 hour span (very unusual for us) and the second time was more intense, different positions. shortly afterward i saw fresh blood after using the bathroom, red/pink. just a little bit then it kinda stopped. the next day on sunday, what looked like a little scab came out of me, along with some brown discharge. still had some yesterday (monday). today is now tuesday and it does feel like my period is actually starting. its my first day of the inactive pill.

    i've been on the same type of pill since 2013. started with ortho tri cyclen lo, then it was tri-lo sprintec (a generic version), and most recently tri lo marzia (another generic). i've had a good experience with it overall. never missed a pill, and havent had any late pills or mistakes in over a year. usually my period does come like clockwork on wed/thurs of the inactive pills, but there have been occasions where i have spotting a few days beforehand. that hasnt happened since march.

    a little about my gynecological history: had an ovarian cyst removed in 2013, which is why i started the pill shortly after. last year i went in for the same reason, post coital bleeding and he happened to find that i had abnormal cells and cervical dysplasia - so last summer of 2018 i had a colposcopy, and per my gyno's advice i had a cervical laser ablation (which takes off the first layer of the cervix with the abnormal cells). uneventful, and i've had 4 normal followup paps since. during that time they also did a transvaginal ultrasound and pelvic ct (due to my history of cysts) and those were normal.

    my last gyno annual was a month ago. he said everything looked normal, and my pap was normal from that too. i am definitely not pregnant. i feel great overall, so i'm really not concerned about anything serious. my concern is, did the sex i had injure my cervix somehow causing it to bleed or contract? my gyno told me that was the most likely reason for post coital bleeding in an otherwise healthy person. but can that happen when you have sex so close to your period? is it because of being on a lower dose bc pill for so long? i dont really mind the spotting, i'd rather deal with that than change bc pulls especially if i dont actually need to. i cant really go to my gyno about this while im on my period, maybe ill go in a couple of weeks but i just wanted to hear if anyone else had a similar experience.
