In brief: Possibly
Bleeding after intercourse is caused by many different possible reasons.
A prolapsed bladder or uterus can expose the vaginal tissue (skin) to the elements and dry it out leading to cracking and thinning which could cause bleeding. More commonly would be infections or polyps (finger-like growths) around the cervix or even cervical cancer. Have it checked out to be sure.

In brief: Maybe, maybe not
A prolapsed bladder or uterus that is partly falling through a weak spot into the vagina probably is going to increase the friction during sex.
The bladder or uterus is likely to be bounced around during sex. Maybe there will be a little bleeding after intercourse. However, such bleeding should first be evaluated by a doctor to be sure other causes are not responsible, such as a cancerous growth.
