If you had bleeding it is best you consult your Doctor to rule out any danger to the baby. Even urinary tract infection can cause bleeding but it will be very mild. Drink plenty of water. Do not delay.

Thanks for writing to us.
During pregnancy, bleeding after intercourse is most likely due to placental bleeding. You need to get an ultrasound scan done to find out the localisation of placenta. If it is low lying then you need to avoid future intercourse and any heavy work. Do not take any medicine without consulting your gynecologist.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
