In brief: 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.
