Dr. Mary David
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Unlikely: It is common to have bleeding after the first time you have sex. Unless you are also having pain, it is probably not a problem .Where are you in your cycle ?Could it be your period? If it becomes extremely heavy or lasts more than 7 days, you need to see a doctor.

Menstrual cycle: Could you be actually having your period? It is not likely that the trauma of first intercourse will cause bleeding a day later.
