I had sex with my boyfriend for the first time and I bled….

…..And after that every time we have sex I always bleed. I really don’t know what’s wrong with me

It is hard to know exactly what is going on but we can clear some things up for you!

A possibility is that the sexual contact is too rough, or that enough lubrication was not used before hand. Lubrication is important during sexual contact. Although vaginas and penis’ are self-lubricating organs, often times enough lubrication is not produced. Some bodies self-lubricate quite a bit; some don’t at all! Lubrication will lower the amount of friction during sexual activity which will reduce any potential irritation.

Vaginal bleeding can also be a sign of an infection, whether a sexually transmitted infection or an organic infection, like yeast or bacterial vaginitis.

It is also important to remember that communication with any partner is important. If something feels uncomfortable or is painful, it is important to communicate that. Everyone involved should always feel comfortable and safe.
