In brief: Need Exam
To occasionally have a bit of spotting with intercourse may not mean anything bad.
If it happens every time or if it is heavy then you should see your gynecologist. You could have a cervical infection, polyps, yeast, or dysplasia. An exam is quick and easy to disclose the cause. Spotting or light bleeding midway between periods may be normal due to ovulation. If it is heavy, see your doctor.
