Hi Tina

Thanks for your post!

One of the main reasons for bleeding after sex is not having enough lubricant. If this is the case, your partner and you can engage in more foreplay or use a lubricant like Astroglide or many others that are on the market.

If you think this is not the reason, then you need to see a doctor since bleeding outside one's period is not considered normal.
