Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Recent bout of diarrhea can cause hormonal fluctuation from normal balance. This can result in increased estrogen activity on the uterus lining and also the vaginal lining.Light bleeding as well as painful intercourse are likely part of that.

Another possibility can be vaginal infection which usually causes symptoms like vaginal discharge as well.

Likely nothing serious.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
