An examination by a trusted gynecologist should determine whether or not your abnormal bleeding is due to trauma or a need for stronger BCPs.

I agree with Dr Lanover that you need to be examined. With the history of a change in your bleeding occurring after what you describe as "rough sex" I am more suspicious of it being due to trauma. But more history and an exam are essential to answer your question
