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! ...Read more

Having: Having sex for the first time is a traumatic experience, for your vagina that is. Vaginal penetration for the first time can cause pain, irritaion, inflammation, and even bleeding. The burning with urination, soreness, and itching, and light spotting is all likely from inflammed vaginal tissue. The continued spotting is also likely from the hymen being disrupted (a membrane that surrounds and/or partially covers the external vaginal opening).
If the itching and burning lasts longer than a week you may be dealing with a urinary tract infection (UTI) or yeast infection. At this point you should be evaluated by your doctor.
I would also like to add here that you should use condoms now that you are having sex to protect yourself from std's; in addition another form of birth control to protect against pregnancy, if that is not in your plans, is a good idea.
Good luck. ...Read more
