This is Dr. David

sounds like you are worried about pregnancy.

bleeding can be from sexual activity and trauma to your cervix and vagina.

pregnancy from sex 3 days after your period is unlikely since it is a bit early for ovulation.

you can see a doctor in 6-9 days to get blood testing to check for pregnancy which is an earlier detection than urine testing.

stomach cramps can be from excessive stomach acid, gastritis, constipation, anxiety can also cause upset stomach as well.

let me know if you have questions.
