Okay so yesterday my partner and I had sex and it was pretty high paced and fast. I wasn't in any pain (was really enjoying it actually) when he stopped halfway through and told me that I was bleeding. When I went to the bathroom to clean up, I found that there was a pretty consistent source of blood, and no pain. We put a towel down on the bed and continued and there was a bit less, but still consistent amount of blood. It was all bright red and there were a couple small clots. When I woke up this morning I was still bleeding. Now normally I would think that it's my "period" but I have another active pill to take before my withdrawal bleed. This is my first month switching to a lower dose birth control, however.

Have any ideas what all the bleeding is? Could my withdrawal bleed have come a couple days early?

It could very well be your withdrawal bleed arriving a couple of days early. Starting the pill or switching brands can throw our bodies out of whack for a bit, and it's entirely possible that your body just needs some time to get used to this new pill.

Bleeding as a result of the sex is also possible, but that doesn't usually continue so long. Really, the only way to know for sure is to see if it keeps up and seems to be a usual period for you. As long as you're not in any pain, there's nothing to be worried about.
