Need evaluation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

Thanks for trusting us about your health care.
I can understand your concerns.
Bleeding after sexual can occur due to so many reasons like injury to vaginal wall, infection and STD infection, estrogen deficiency other than cervical polyp and cancer.
But whenever you had vaginal bleeding after sexual intercourse, you should consult a Gynecologist and get yourself examined and rule out the above mentioned causes.
You should get your pap smear test, ultrasound scan, vaginal swab culture and sensitivity to rule out above mentioned causes.
Hope it is useful, feel free to discuss more.
Good luck.
