This is Dr. David
if you are started to have a period, you would not be pregnant
if you are tender, you could have had lacerations or trauma from the intercourse.
you need to see your GP doctor for gyn exam.
most likely you are not pregnant.
but you could have an infection or trauma causing the heavy bleeding.
you would need a gyn exam to confirm if the coil is still inside
but I bet it is
