HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Bleeding after intercourse may not indicate any serious problem. It can be due to (1) trauma to the genital organs during intercourse
(2) vaginal dryness or inadequate lubrication
(3) inflammation of the cervix or cervicitis
(4) polyps of the cervix- these are outgrowths that can sometimes occur, they are easily treated (5) cervical dysplasia which is abnormality of the cells of the cervix, however you stated that you have regular papsmears which are normal so this is unlikely . Papsmears are now recommended to be done every 2 to 3 years provided they are normal.
(6) infection

With a history of previously normal smears , it is unlikely that the bleeding represents any significant problems.
You can consider monitoring it for the next 24 hrs , if it persists then you may want to consider visiting your doctor.

If it stops before that time but you experience recurrent episodes then you also need to be evaluated to ensure that there are no serious issues.

I hope this helps
