Thanks for the query to ATD FOR AN OPINION,
If you have experience post-coital bleeding which lasted only for some time it was not your start of menses then in a reproductive age group, the most likely cause is cervical erosions or ecotype. These lesions may bleed during intercourse due to frictional injury. Cervical erosions are likely seen in cases of HPV infection with often metaplasia. It is suggested that you should visit your physician for a per speculum exam and a PAP SMEAR + HPV CO-TESTING to rule out any abnormal smear possibly due to infection ( bacterial vaginosis), HPV infection or simply due to erosions. These can be graded according to pap smear grades and then can be treated accordingly with either follow up or medication if required or if in excess then even cryotherapy may also be instituted to cauterise/ freeze the lesions or excise a part of cervix as in LEEP procedure.
You should visit your physician for an early exam and take an informed decision,
I hope I have answered your query in detail,
Wishing you good health,
