24/02/20 - Female, 15 :

Is it normal to bleed after having sex for the first time ?

Ali says -


Thanks for your question.

Yes having penetrative sex for the first time may cause some bleeding because of your hymen breaking/ tearing. The hymen is a thin piece of skin that covers the entrance to the vagina.

If you're concerned about bleeding after sex, seek advice from your GP or your nearest sexual health clinic.
