I have been with a guy for a little while and he really wanted to have sex. We have a really great physical attraction and we finally did it yesterday. But I have had a really bad experience in the past which has stopped me from being really into it. I was really tight and it hurt a bit and I ended up bleeding, is this really bad? My body is ok now but I am a bit concerned.

A bit of pain or bleeding is normal after the first time you have intercourse.

This can be minimized by being relaxed and using lots of water-based lube. Also, the fact that you weren't as into it as you could have been really could be a factor--it may be wise to wait a bit before having intercourse again to make sure that you are fully comfortable and ready. Furthermore, if you and your partner haven't gotten tested for STDs already, I suggest doing so to keep you both healthy and safe.
