okay so first of all, I am a 16 year old female. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex yesterday, but his penis only entered my vagina once, and it was rough going in.. Before I went to bed last night, I went to the bathroom and noticed a bit of blood coming out of my vagina. I thought it was normal at first since he probably tore the muscle or something, but I woke up this morning with a lot more blood there. I missed my period last month and I was already scared for that reason, but now I'm very scared I could be pregnant and I do not know why I am bleeding or if it is just my period.. Please help me [Frown]

Vaginal muscles are very strong, and not something likely to tear with consensual sex. More likely, that bleeding is about, as you say, things being rough, not using enough lubricant, and getting some abrasions. Or, like you said, it could be your menstrual period.

Any time we have the kind of sex where pregnancy can occur, there is a risk, and if we engage in those kinds of sex without using any kind of contraception, including condoms, those risks can be high. Since it's been less than 120 hours since this sex, if you want to radically reduce the risks of pregnancy from this, you can get and use emergency contraception.

Otherwise, I'd keep an eye on that bleeding, and if it doesn't seem like your period or, if it's not, if it doesn't slow up in the next day or you are in pain, then you'll want to see a sexual healthcare provider about it.

I'd also suggest talking with your partner about how you two are going to manage risks of pregnancy and STIs in your sexual life, and about contraception and safer sex. Do you feel able to have those conversations and draw some lines?
