Breakthrough bleed?: Many women have spotting while ovulating or occasional breakthrough bleeding which may have been coincidental with having sex. Lower belly pain could also be suggestive of mild pelvic infection. Gyn appt advised if pain persists.

Depends: If the sex was aggressive enough you could have torn some tissue that weeped blood for a while.If the character of the blood was more like menses, It may have been a light cycle.If this continues to happen you may want to have it evaluated.
