Hello and thanks for the query. 
Bleeding during or after intercourse, often termed post-coital bleeding, can occur because of many reasons. Cervical cancer is one of the most serious causes of post-coital bleeding. However, it is not the only cause.  Whatever the cause of bleeding associated with intercourse, it is not a symptom that you should ignore. It is advisable to contact your doctor at the earliest if you are experiencing bleeding during or after intercourse. Some of the common causes of bleeding during sex besides cervical cancer are
Cervical ectropion 
Cervical polyps
Sexually transmitted diseases
Vaginal dryness in menopausal women
Vaginal yeast infection
 Uterine polyps


Endometritis or adenomyosis

Since you already had cervical cancer earlier,you must consult your doctor at the earliest 
I hope to have answered your query however you can revert to me for any other query.
Thanks and best of luck
