Welcome to ehealthforum,
Bleeding/spotting during or after intercourse is not normal. It could be suggestive of infection, injury, cervical dysplasia, endometriosis, endometritis, etc. Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your treating doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further examination and investigations to look for the underlying cause. Get started on treatment as indicated.
Take care.
