Dr Uzair :

Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.

Dr Uzair :

No, not at all, this is not due to the cut on the finger.

Dr Uzair :

It is usual to bleed during or after sexual intercourse for menopausal women, this is due to atrophic vaginitis that occurs due to lack of hormones. The mucosa of the vagina dries up and becomes shriveled. This dryness lacks lubrication and due to the friction of sexual intercourse, abrasions result in bleeding and pain.

Dr Uzair :

This can be treated with vaginal estrogen creams, daily application and hormone replacement therapy.

Yes, that is correct.
