Hello,
It needs to be determined if the bleeding is from vagina or urinary tract. If there is blood in the urine the possible causes are urinary tract infection, kidney stones, bladder infection, bladder stones etc.Bleeding from the vagina after sex should be taken seriously.PIDs, STIs,atrophic vaginitis,cervical or endometrial polyps, cervical erosions are few common causes of bleeding after sex.Depending on your detailed symptoms and medical history your doctor may recommend a pelvic examination and tests like urine examination, pregnancy test and cervical screening tests. Do keep us posted.
Take care and regards!
