In brief: Unknown

Bleeding after sex can be benign or it can be a sign of bigger problems.
If you have a yeast infection, the cervix can bleed easily from sex and you may have no other symptoms. The same can occur with some std's, such as chlamydia. Benign conditions such as nabothian cysts or ectropian can be responsible, but serious conditions such as cervical, uterine, or vaginal cancer could be responsible.
