As with all medical issues, the immediate advice is to see a doctor, perhaps in this case a gynaecologist, right away. Diagnosis on the internet, telephone or indeed any medium other than a physical examination is difficult and unreliable, and often downright dangerous, especially when talking about something as complex and important as your reproductive system.

With that said, it is not entirely uncommon to start a period two weeks early. There have been cases where a person will have their menstrual cycle every two weeks like clockwork instead of every month, and many women will get their period early occasionally. There can be any number of reasons, birth control, smoking, substance abuse, sexual activity, pregnancy etc.

One more serious cause which should certainly be checked by your doctor or gynaecologist is ovarian cysts. These have been known to cause a number of menstrual problems, and many personal reports claim that ovarian cysts are linked to their irregular cycles. These can lead to more serious problems, and are best caught early.

If you are sexually active, and have taken the morning after pill, it has been known to have unusual effects on your menstrual cycle. Factors such as this are worth considering before you begin to panic, but regardless of the circumstance, you should still visit a medical professional. It is likely your period will return to normal in time, but never pass up getting problems check out just because of worry.

Hi! I hope this helps...I experienced this same problem. This could be a number of things but it sounds like for the most of you it is happening shortly after sex. Sometimes when you have sex in a position your not used to or have intercourse a little "rougher" then usual then it can cause your body to go through "trauma" and force your body to start its cycle sooner then normal. Anyway, if it doesn't regulate after a couple months or your cramps get worse then normal then I would see a doctor. Otherwise just wait it out. Hope this helps.

I think you should need not to worry because under normal conditions pregnancy immediately after the periods is rare. The spotting after sex can be due to any reason like stress or shock. I advise you to wait for next period and then take pregnancy test. If test is negative and problem persist, then visit a doctor.
