Should I be bleeding during sex after having total hysterectomy

I had a total hysterectomy 9 months ago, but since my husband and I started having post operation sex, I've experienced bleeding during sex. Its bright red with no pain. It doesn't flow out to the point I have to wear a pad but just when I wipe. It last about 3 hours after it starts. Please let me know if its something to be afraid of.

Welcome to ehealthforum

Bleeding after intercourse(post Hysterectomy)can be due to various causes as Hormonal imbalances,cervical dysplasia,polyps.Since how long are you experiencing this?
It requires a pelvic examination and investigations as Hormonal analysis to rule out the exact cause.It should not be ignored so kindly visit your treating doctor for evaluation.

Take Care!
