Okay, I'm one of those "hm, let's cut our own septate" girls. Didn't really finish it, what I did do served it's purpose - i.e, no more Iron Hymen.

But to get more to the question, I went to visit my boyfriend last week, and you know what follows with the whole 700 mile long distance relationship with virtually no supervision >__>; Yeah, on the pill, didn't forget a one, and we even used a condom once to help with 'things.' Well, anyway, towards the end of the week, everytime we'd stop, I'd pull up and there'd be blood on him, and on me (well, more me, I was like, "!@#$, blood!" and I got a "Holy @#$&, really?").

Well, I looked it up on my own, and I found nothing but diseases to account for the bleeding. Whereas I'm rather certain it's my stupid Iron Hymen acting up again. Anyway, the facts for the tl'dr...

He's big
I'm not(tiny hymen, arrrgh)
I'm on pills
Why am I bleeding?

Yay for the long-winded gene.

Okay, so the whole "let's cut our own septate hymen" thing? Never a good idea. I suggest you get yourself to a gyn asap to make sure you didn't do any damage or give yourself an infection.

Short of that, these are some other things that can cause bleeding: being tense, not being aroused enough, not using enough lube.

Oh, and if you're going condom-less, then I am sure that means you've both been tested for STIs, twice, six months apart, and used condoms in the meantime?

Both of us are(were, I guess o_o) virgins.

But yeah, all I really did was nick it. And it was a month before christmas that I did that; went to a gyn a little while after.

But thanks for giving reasons for bleeding that aren't horrible diseases... seeing nothing but that is -always- so reassuring.

Alright, so no infections from the auto-surgery.

It sounds to me like the most likely culprit here is lack of lubrication. Why not invest in some condom-safe lube next time and use it? I'm sure it'll help, and lube certainly never hurts. [Smile]

And on a side note: not all STIs are only transmitted sexually, so even if you are each other's first, it's always good to get into safer-sex habits such as condom use and regular testing.
