Heavy periods: There are lots of treatment options you can discuss with your doctor. If this is a one time thing then no treatment is needed. If it continues then discuss your options. Lysteda is a nonhormone medication designed for heavy periods. Some benefit from birth control pills, patch or nuvaring. Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud can stop your period in some cases.

Vaginal bleeding: You should have an evaluation by your gynecologist. You may have had trauma due to intercourse. But it is worth checking out further including with a pelvic ultrasound to rule out other causes.
