Had sex 13 days ago and now bleeding I think it's ovulation bleeding because my period isn't due for another week. What do you think ? And exactly how long does ovulation bleeding last and what does it look like ?

In brief: Could be

Very frequently ovulation bleeding or midcycle spotting has an appearance similar to menstrual bleeding but is shorter and lighter. Generally, unless persistent or bothersome, no further evaluation is needed.
Bleeding after sex requires an evaluation. Also sometimes unscheduled bleeding could be a sign of pregnancy - so have a test for that.
