Bleeding after first time sex- how long is normal?
Hello. This is really embarrassing, but oh well.

I'm a 26/f. (late bloomer, yes.) I've been dating my BF for a while , Sunday nihgt we finally decided to have sex for the first time. We got a little tipsy and then went for it- off and on for about 2 hours, in different positions. It didn't hurt too much at the time, but afterwards we noticed blood on the mattress. I bled light/moderate overnight and the next morning, and since then i've been spotty (it's been 3.5 days). I've also been a little tender. I was just wondering if this was normal. I've had bad reaction to birth control pills, so we just used condoms.

Thanks in advance for any help!

A couple days ago I lost my virginity we were careful and used a condom. I bled a lot though and I've been mildly freaking out. The last few days I've been spotty but the blood hasn't been red, it was sort of brown and I've been sore. Can anyone tell me when the bleeding and the tenderness will stop?

I am 20 turning 21 and I lost my virginity today with my boyfriend of over 1 year. Protected of course. It was hard getting his d*ck in cuz he kept getting erect then not then erect again and again. lol. and I think I'm tight so it was kinda hard getting it in (I never inserted more than two fingers and that kinda already hurt), but when i did, i felt pain and discomfort. It became better when I relaxed more but it still hurt a bit. He wiped the condom with a tissue and got shocked at the site of blood. It bled a moderate amount and we just continued doing other things to finish up because it was feeling quite sore.

I have masturbated before and though I already broke my hymen.
Our mistake wasn't having enough foreplay and we were super in the mood so I guess there was a lack of erection and lubrication.

Is there a chance i'll bleed again?

The hymen is the main factor that will determine whether or not you will bleed during first time sex. If your hymen has already been broken, there is a chance that you may not bleed. There are many other causes of a hymen breaking aside from sex. Girls who are involved in sports which involve a lot of stretching or splits, such as gymnastics or ballet, may find that their hymen breaks before they have sex. Masturbation can also cause the hymen to break before first time sex.Bleeding the first two to three times you have sexual intercourse is nothing to worry about. Once you have been having sex for months or years and are still bleeding, there could be a problem. Certain sexually transmitted diseases, gynecological conditions and even certain types of cancer can cause vaginal bleeding after sex. Some women also suffer from vaginal dryness, which can cause this problem. If you experience continuous bleeding after sex, it is important to talk to your gynecologist about it.

yeah shes telling the truth, the first time i had sex my cherry didn't pop. ive been having it for four years now and no one has popped mine. sometimes it just doesnt happen for some women, or it could have already been popped by an accident, like some hard pressure on her parts. i mean she could be lying but just because she didn't bleed doesn't mean she is.

You can' spell. Anyway Mom's Friend, who is a minister and a woman of God, teaches that sex is good for everybody from puberty on and she subscribes to the "orgasm a day" rule proposed by the British National Health Service. The blood of defloration and the blood of periods symbolizes the blood of Jesus as much as the semen symbolizes His body and blood. Sex is healthy and indeed obeys God's Law of Love.

It depends really. Don't think pulling out before ejaculation can prevent pregnancy, treat a penis like a loaded gun... it's always dangerous, you should protect it with a condom at all times!  If you do you will not only stand a good chance of getting pregnant you will also be at risk of catching a nasty sexually transmitted infection.

If i was you, i would tell my mom what happened. She is the best person to ask a question like that. And she would more than likely not be as mad at you  because of the possibility of what you implied. Talk to her. Mommy's know best. Good luck sweetie.

He was probably just too rough or too fast, it helps to let him know you're a virgin and to be gentle, it'll still hurt but not as bad and it will start to feel better when you get into it

If u r 13 and u didn't have ur period yet it was a bad choice to play with itself but if ur 13 and already had ur period we'll good luck and this just means ur sore from the 'pop"  to be a virgin inside a vagina is a kinda like a bubble when it pops ur not a virgin anymore so technically I think it may have popped which is causing the sore and unComfortable feeling. So u can tell ur friends ur not a virgin

Being a virgin is nothing to be ashamed of. Girls or guys that tease you for being a virgin just wish they were still one! Trust me, I've been through it. I'm 42 and still a virgin, and plan to be until I get married. Hold on to your virginity! It is the most precious thing you will ever have!

I want to state clearly that there are no doctors on this forum.  Higher up in the posts, you received some helpful information.  However, the original poster is long gone as this post is a couple of years old and hopefully she has worked through this.  luck to all

If you was a virgin before you had sex with him it could be because of that, everyone bleeds after their first time its normal, people are different and bleed more than others.

I am guessing that you was a virgin before you had sex with him, the bleeding would be because it was your first time. The discharge is normal and so is the bleeding, sometimes you can bleed badly but it is normal. It could last up to a week or a little over. It didnt hurt after because he has already cut into your vigina (thats why it hurt and it only cuts on your first time its normal). You should be able to have sex when the bleeding has stopped but use a condom as it lubricants it and wont make it hurt as much or be hard to put is penis in you.

It is perfectly normal for you to bleed everyone does after their first time and if you get discharge it is normal too. It will hurt badly after and during your first but the pain will go. You dont need to take a pregnancy test and the bleeding should last up to about a week or a little more, you shoulf try talking to him about your depression and why you feel like that. Talking to your sexual partner will help. It is not his fault your are bleeding it is perfectly normal.

It is perfectly normal to bleed after your first time sex and even if your aren't a virgin, if you was a virgin before having sex it it fine because everyone does and it should stop up to a week or a little more. You won't need to go to your doctor and if you wasnt a virgin it would be because he was "big" and you wasnt.

It does work but it can make you infertile. You may be bleeding because yoy have had you break for your period or that he has a big penis and it is too big for your vigina to handle

You should no have had sex while you are being treated for thrush also known as yeast infection, it doesn't help and stops the treatment from working, it you had unprotected sex it would have gave him an infection too and it hurts because you had sex with thrush. That's also why its sore. You can buy a cream that stops the itch and sore its called canesten. You should go back to your doctor and have more medication to start the treatment again. Dont have sex until a few weeks after being treated.

You will still be tight agter a while, it depends really on how big your boyfriends penis is. If it is rather thick then it shouldnt take as long because it is his penis that stretches your vigina. It will be sore because of yeast infection. You shouldnt have sex during or soon after having and being treated for it. You will have to start treatment again if having sex during

Please don't let anyone pressure you into sex!  You should only do it when you feel you are completely ready. It is best if you love the person you are having sex with. It will make the first time better.  13 is still very young, you have lots of years ahead of you to experience sex. Just my advice.
