Post coital bleed: It could just be some residual menstrual flow that hadn't passed yet, but more commonly bright red blood right after sex is from a friable cervix. Friable means bleeds easily when touched. Cramps can also just be from sex itself. Semen has a chemical in it called prostaglandins and that causes uterine cramping
