Bleeding during coitus

I see traces of blood after having sex with my boyfriend. The first time this happened I didn't take it seriously but we had again a few days later and I bled again. What could be the cause?

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
There are a few questions that need to be answered in order to know the cause.
If you just came off your period then this is normal aftermath that can happen from the impact on the cervix.
On the other hand if you were having sex for the first time or have not had sex in a long time, then it could be caused from friction of not being well lubricated.
If neither of these apply to you then there could be something more serious going on, such as injury to uterine lining; and you should see a doctor if it continues.
