Please tell me, could a large bowel movement cause you to bleed from your vagina?

Possibly: Although it is very unusual to have vaginal bleeding during or because of a bowel movement, as the canals are separate. If you suffer from a condition called vaginal or uterine prolapse, bearing down for a bowel movement may cause prolapse of those organs and bleeding. Your local GI or obgyn can evaluate for the condition.

No it will not: No large bowel movement will not cause you to have bleeding from vagina.
