Hello and welcome

Your concern is appreciated

Bleeding after vaginal intercourse is not normal that may be due to infection of the cervix or vagina and inflammation can be the cause. Sexually tranmitted diseases like gonorhea is also one of the cause. Cervical polyp should also ve considered. Some times harmone replacement therapy can also result in this. Some times cervical metaplastic changes can also be the reason for this.

Hope it helps
