monthly bleeds after hysterectomy

I had a hysterectomy 4 years ago - only uterus removed.
Although occasional spotting took place after sex, it has become almost a monthly occurance now. Each month - roughly 28-30 days I experience pre-menstrual symptoms and if I have sex, during this so-called period time, I bleed during it. I don't bleed if I don't have sex.
Could you explain this?
Thank-you.

It may be that there is some scar tissue in the area where the uterus was removed. Your gynaecologist should be able to cauterise this if it is the case.
