Many possibilities: Hello,
Irregular bleeding can have many causes, ranging from normal to, rarely, cancer.
PCOS can be diagnosed with blood tests and an ultrasound, which would be a good idea if you haven't had them.
It's also important that your PAPs are up to date. Bleeding after penetration would make us want to check for infection, polyps or cancer by a vaginal exam.
