I'm a 17 year old female.  When I was 15 I had sex for the first time, right after that I got checked out to make sure everything was okay as I was always told to go to a doctor after the first time you have sex.  I then didn't have sex again until I was sixteen, just last summer a few times,  and everything was fine and it was with only one person.  Since summer I have had sex numerous times with the same person.  About 5  weeks ago I bled while we were having sex,  but afterwards I didn't bleed at all. I've had what I'd consider "rough" sex before, and haven't bled, and now when it's slow as he's afraid of hurting me I do! I know its not an STD because my guy has been checked and hasnet been with anyone since, and I was checked after the first guy. Ive had sex in a hottub and one of my friends says that could be a possibility as why it is happening, but I doubt it. I even waited it out a month to see what happened and just the other day the same thing.  It's not overly heavy, or thick, but it's embarrasing.  I hate hate hate going to doctors, and don't want to tell my mom, as she would disown me! I'm not on the pill, there is no other reasonable answer! can someone help me? please I just want this to stop. . . any advice?!?!
thanks

Sometimes, when you have an STD, you can bleed after sex. I believe it is Claymidia . It never hurts to get tested.Good luck

If you don't feel comfortable talking to your mom about it.You can go to your local health dept and get tested for std's.You should also look in the STD forum archives. There might be some related posts in there.

I don't know I don't think its clamydia because I have no other symptoms.  Also, if I have only been with one other guy other then my boyfreind and I was tested after wards , and my boyfreind has been tested becasue I was to afraid to which came back negative then how could I ? Although it is a possibility....I just dont really like the doctor thing I have a bad experience and thats why I am resulting to the internet in home of home remedies.

I have to agree with the other posters. I'm not intending to be preachy...but Having sex is  big Responsibility ..and with it comes other responsibilities. Responsibilities to YOURSELF and others....Like regular testing, getting on Birth control. If someone has an STD like claymidia, and does not get treatment for it, it could turn into a ful blown PID infection.I urge you to please go get tested. Even if you and your boyfriend have both been tested.

bleeding during or after sex can also be a sign of a cervical problem. If you don't want to tell your mom you need to go to the local health department or planned parenthood. You need to get checked. Do not play with your body. It is giving you a warning sign. Listen to it!

Actually, spotting after intercourse is a major symptom of chlamydia.  A negative test for your bf is not proof you don't have it.  So the first thing to do is to go to your doctor to be tested yourself, like it or not.
There are other things that can cause spotting or bleeding after sex, and you aren't helping yourself by relying on home remedies on the internet to diagnose and treat yourself.

What form of bc are you using?  If you are having sex, you should be on some form of birth control if you don't want a baby.  Even if you are on the pill, you should also be using a barrier method such as condoms to protect yourself against STD's unless and until you are in a committed exclusive relationship.

I want to put in my imput. Just because a guy tells you that he that he doesn't have anything does not mean that you need to believe him. The major important thing here is you need to wear condoms or some kind of protection to prevent diseases. I am not saying birth control that stops you from getting pregnant. You need protection from diseases. You are very young and at this rate without protection, you are going to be in trouble when you are older. AIDS is very rapid right now and there is no cure for that. You need to listen to these womens' advices and go get checked out. Don't blow this advice off that I am going to gice you. BOYS AND EVEN MEN WILL TELL YOU THAT THEY DON'T HAVE ANY DISEASES OR STDS TO GET IN YOUR PANTS BUT REALLY, HOW DO THEY KNOW. SOME STDS DON'T SHOW SYMPTOMS UNTIL LATER AND AIDS DON'T SHOW UP IN YOUR SYSTEM SOMETIMES UP TO 5 TO 10 YEARS. IT ONLY TAKES ONE TIME TO GET AIDS. DON'T TRUST. STAY ON THE SAFE SIDE.
