Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
What you have experienced could be 'post-coital bleeding'. It refers to spotting or bleeding unrelated to menstrual cycle that occurs during or after sexual intercourse.
Causes of these include: Infection, Cervical or endometrial polyps, Vaginal cancer, Cervical cancer or Trauma.
You need to get an Ultrasound scan of pelvis done along with per-speculum examination by Gynecologist to rule out some of these causes. If any abnormality is detected, it could be treated accordingly.
Hope the information provided would be useful.
All the best.
