bleeding after intercourse should not be taken lightly there can be many causes of it.If it is hymen rupture or injury you need medication to heal it but if its a genital lesion etc then u will have to take proper treatment . So in any case gynic openion is must, till that time avoid any sexual contact.

Actually Your cervix — the narrow, lower end of your uterus — is usually the source of bleeding brought on by vaginal sex,If the cells of your cervix are inflamed or otherwise abnormal, sexual intercourse can cause enough friction to make them bleed. Bleeding after vaginal sex is never normal, but in most cases, it's the result of harmless, treatable cervical changes, now If you have bleeding after vaginal sex, it's important to see your doctor to determine the cause.

Hi !
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Vaginal bleeding after an intercouse can occur due to hymen rupture, vaginal tear, rough and vigrous intercourse causing cervical abration. Further, it may lead to infections, so better consult a gynaecologist soon.

Thanks and take care.

It is better to get your self examined and get the root cause cured. You can have tab bol badh ras to check bleeding have turmeric and aamla for quick healing of any spot leading to bleeding.

This is not nomral. Bleeding after intercourse means there is a lesion on cervix or vagina. You need to get yourself examined, until then try to avoid intercourse, or atleast rough intercourse.

Thanks for choosing visit a doctor to rule out cervical abrasions,vaginal tears,infections, and also get a pap smear done.Donot take any medicines without finding why you are bleeding.

hello doc im lin, from philippines done my transvaginal ultra sound last april 15, 2014 here is the findings: The uterus is anteverted, and normal in size, measuring approximately 4.9 x 4.3 x 4.0 cm (LWT). It exhibits a homogeneous parenchymal echopattern and a smooth external outline. The endometrium is echogenic and 1.1 cm thick. There is no definite sonographic evidence of a gestational sac or embryo within. the cervix likewise shows a homogeneous parenchymal echopattern save for a small anechoic focus posteriorly, measuring 0.5 cm in average diameter. The cervical canal is closed. No focal mass lessions or calcifications seen within. Right Ovary = 2.4 x 1.5 x 1.8 cm - lateral to the uterine body, Left ovar = 2.5 x 1.8 x 1.7 cm - left adnexa. The ovaries appear normal in size with small, anechoic foci within the largest in the right measures 0.7 cm, while that in the left measures 0.6 cm in their average diameters. there is a questionable complex, predominantly solid, round, hypoechoic focus adjacent to and not-well separated from the right ovary, measuring approximately 3.6 x 3.2 x 2.7 cm. The posterior cul-de-sac is intact. LMP feb 16, 2014. Two months delayed. Done home preg test last March 21, 24, and 26 with the same result of 1 faint line and 1 dark line. My OBgyne confirmed that i am pregnant last time i visit her (that was March 26, 2014) , i was suffering a severe abdominal pain and leg cramps, i take a folic acid capsule but based on my ultrasound the sonologist havent found any sac and they did another urine pregtest and its negative. I was suffering an abdomenal pain and leg cramps. the conlusion of my ultrasound: 1. normal anteverted uterus with a secretomy endometrium 2. nabothian cyst 3. questionable small complex focus in the right aadnexa. Ovarian etiology is one consideration. Pelvic abscess/ectopic pregnancy not totally ruled out. Please correlate clinically. Close follow-up is also suggested. 4. Normal-sized left ovary with follicles as described.
