In brief: No

Fertilization is entrance of the sperm cell into the egg.
These single cells have very little influence on hormones or endometrial lining, so fertilization won't cause a heavy bleed. Uterine problems like fibroids or polyps, or hormonal problems like low Progesterone levels are more likely a source of bleeding in early pregnancy. A pelvic exam and ultrasound are helpful to evaluate.

Bleeding should not occur due to fertilization.
It may indicate other issues such as low progesterone, polyps, or fibroids.
