In brief: No
It is common for some women to bleed after intercourse.
Minor trauma from the act of intercourse can cause a small amount of bleeding from the external genitalia, vagina or cervix. If it is painless, then it is likely from the cervix. If it persists, then you should seek care for a vaginal exam.
