Post-sexual bleeding: Bleeding after sexual relations can be due to irritation of the outer cervix. If it continues, see your healthcare professional, because there are other explanations which should be investigated. Vigorous sexual relations after weeks/months of abstinance can result in bleeding as discribed. It is best to be examined and tested for the other possibilities to be ruled out.
