Not necessarily: Any abnormal vaginal bleeding should be evaluated by a physician. It may or may not be related to the prolapse, but there are also many other causes.

Maybe: While bleeding after intercourse probably is a bit more common with uterine prolapse, there are other more serious causes that need to be ruled out so see a specialist for an evaluation.
