Brief Answer:
cervical erosions.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
the presence of bleeding per vaginum after vaginal intercourse indicates towards a possibility of cervical erosions or cervicitis. It is mandatory to get a per speculum examination and a pap smear done to rule out cervicitis and erosions which are the likely cause of post-coital bleeding in your case. please meet your gynecologist for the examination soon.
