Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Bleeding after sex is usually caused from too much friction on he cervix without proper lubrication. Since your boyfriend does not do a lot of foreplay, it is possible you do not produce much of your own natural lubrication. In which case I highly suggest you use a hypoallergenic water based lubricant which you can find at any drug store for a low price.
Below I have pasted a link to a HER article which talks more about different reasons for bleeding after sex:
I hope that helps.
