Probably OK: It isn't uncommon to have bleeding the first time you have intercourse - and I am assuming that you wanted to have sex, of course. (if you have been harmed, that's another matter!) unless the bleeding is heavy or increasing, it will probably stop and not happen again. Try using a lubricant when you have sex; remember not to use vaseline with condoms. Chose a lubricant that won't damage condoms!

If a woman has sex for the first time, will she be bleeding?

If a woman has sex for the first time, will she be bleeding?

Unlikely: The normal hymen is a circle of elastic tissue around the vagina opening, like a stretchy bracelet. Its a common myth that the hymen tears and bleeds with first sex when, in fact, it usually just stretches during penetration. Small skin splits might happen with sex but are definitely not inevitable. So, no, bleeding is not expected with sex for the first time

Tearing of hymen: Bleeding after the first intercourse is expected. It can be heavy or light for some people. It is caused by tearing of the hymen which is a membrane that covers the vaginal opening. The bleeding should stop when the tear heals.

May be: How much are you bleeding? Could you be having a normal period? Spotting due to tearing of hymen could result in spotting for a couple of days. If it is more than spotting and lasts more than 3-4 days, it would be prudent to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.
