In brief: Etiology dependent
This depends on the cause of your first subarachnoid hemorrhage.
If it was aneurysmal, and the aneurysm was clipped or coiled and there are no others--then unlikely. This assumes you manage your blood pressure and there are no genetic risk factors.If it was traumatic and you suffer no further trauma-- unlikely. There are occasional subarachnoid hemorrhages where no cause is found.

It would be very unlikely that you would suffer a second event given there are no residual aneurysms and you have no genetic pre-disposition for aneurysm formation.

In literature, benign paroxysmal idopathic subarachnoid hemorrhage means we have no answer and can find no bleeding vessel. These comprise about 10-15% of all subarachnoid hemorrhages. Best of luck to you.
