Welcome to ehealthforum.
Bleeding during or after intercourse is not normal. It suggests possibility of vaginal or cervical infection, PID, cervical erosion etc. This could be one of the causes that is preventing you from getting pregnant. Do not delay your visit to your gynecologist for a thorough examination along with tests like vaginal swab/smear, PAP test and ultrasound scan to confirm the cause and start you on appropriate treatment.
Take care.
