Bleeding after sex

Please, what can make my fiancée discharge blood each time we have sex? She was not menstruating at those periods.  Kindly tell me the causes and solutions.

Bleeding after sex can be due to many reasons ranging from an infection, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), or a sexually transmitted infection (STI), such as chlamydia, damage to the vagina, such as tears caused by childbirth, or by dryness or friction during sex. It can also be caused by cervical or endometrial polyps (benign or non-cancerous growths in the womb or the lining of the cervix)   In rare instances, bleeding after sex can be a sign of cervical or vaginal cancer. In view of the above, it is important for your fiancée to see her doctor who will recommend some tests or examinations with which the actual diagnosis and treatment can be made.
