Vaginal bleeding: Bleeding after having sex for the first time can occur from tearing of the hymen, from irritation of the vaginal wall, or from disruption of the uterine lining due to the motions of intercourse. You should check with your doctor if you are having pain, if the bleeding is more than a pad an hour, or if you are still bleeding after a week.

A 41-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to bleed when you lose your virginity?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in

Yes: As the hymeneal tissue has blood vessels that will bleed when opened up with the first intercourse, if it continues to bleed or is sore or you are worried about infection or want to make sure it has completely opened, then see your gyn.
