Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Bleeding after sex usually originates from friction on the cervix. Since you have had cervical cancer, and gone through treatment, it is not surprising that your cervix is still sensitive. If it was a lot of blood, continues to occur every time, or becomes painful to have sex, then you need to talk to your doctor.
Make sure you use a good water-based lubricant to reduce friction.
