In brief: Sometimes

Placing the ultrasound probe into the vaginal can cause bleeding.
The probe rubs against the cervix, which in pregnancy could cause bleeding.

In brief: Typically no

A vaginal ultrasound typically does not cause vaginal bleeding.
Vaginal bleeding after a vaginal ultrasound typically happens because a uterine bleeding was already present before the vaginal ultraound.
