right so lately me and my girlfriend have been really active in the bedroom department, but we see eachother like every 3 days and stuff and we end up havin sex all the time.
i love it so much, but latley she has been making me bleed, and its sore down there, i dont want her to stop because im worried she might not be in the mood afterwards, so i just carry on.
can you tell me why i have started to bleed and why it is starting to hurt, and what should i do.?

Often pain/bleeding with entry has to do with not being sufficiently aroused or not using enough lubricant. But it could also be a sign of an infection or other condition. Have you had a sexual health exam recently?

Do you feel less aroused when you're having sex than you did before the bleeding and pain started? In other words, when the pain is happening are you really aroused and desiring entry?

If so, are her nails cut short and smooth or is she wearing a latex glove? Does it feel like she's scratching you? Does it feel like you're using enough lube?

Sex shouldn't be painful. If something starts to hurt, the thing to do is stop. Can you talk to your girlfriend about your concerns about stopping? It might be helpful to imagine if you were in her position. If she was having the sort of pain you are, wouldn't you want to know about it and do things differently so it just felt good?
