See your doctor: Vaginal bleeding after intercourse can be caused several things - a vaginal laceration, vaginal or pelvic infection or even a cervical polyp. The only way to be sure is to get an exam by your doctor. You may simply need to take some antibiotics to treat an infection. But, only your doctor will be able to determine the right course of action.
