Not a virgin, so why do I bleed during/after intercourse?
Question Posted Thursday November 11 2010, 8:24 am
I've had sex 3 times now and the first time, I bled, a lot. But I blew it off as me losing my virginity so it was "normal". The second time, I bled a little bit, but nothing too tragic, so I assumed that meant it was gonna get better as I had sex more often. Well, the third time was a re enactment of the first time. I bled. A lot. What's up with that? Why? Am I gonna have to worry everytime about "Omg, am I gonna bleed this time?" I'm convinced my vagina is defective. lol
I ask how long it's been between your sexual experiences because STDs like chlamydia (easily curable, but easily passed on) have a short incubation period, and one of the symptoms is bleeding after sex. After initial exposure, symptoms can surface within 1-3 weeks.
My recommendation is to get to a doctor and get an STD screening, something that you must start doing anyway now that you're sexually active. Chlamydia is not the most dangerous of STDs and it's super easy to treat and actually fairly common. It is, however, very serious if left untreated. Don't have any more sex until you've determined the cause of the bleeding with a doctor.

if your on the pill, it does have some side affects one being a slight decrease in sex drives, for woman this is a biggy we are very tender beings and our bodies are very intricately built if we are not fully aroused not every one will come to the party ... if you catch my drift?
you dont give much more info but do you still experience a slight discomfort? im almost certain its an arousal problem.
Try lingering in the foreplay action a little bit longer trust me it makes it more worthwhile for BOTH partners.
try use some lube too but, remember if using a condom stick to water based ones as the oil based ones can break down the silicone bonds and cause it to possibly tare.
and now for the "motherly" disclaimer - if you feel you are responsible and grown up enough to have sex you must go see your gynaecologist and get those pap smears done annually and if your not on the pill get on it and remember - no glove no love! be smart about it!

This is completely normal. Now if this lasts for weeks ande weeks, that's when you should worry and call your doctor and get tested for STDs. I hope this helped :) [ Rii_Luv's advice column | Ask Rii_Luv A Question ]
