Brief Answer: Should get evaluated Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for your query. Bleeding after intercourse is suspicious for cervical cancer. However, age related atrophy of vagina may also cause this. A normal pap smear does not rule out cervical cancer. You should get evaluated by a gynecologist so that any obvious lesion is not missed. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer further followup queries, if any.
