okay so monday i had sex with my boyfriend it was my first time and his second time. i had a great time hurt at first but it got better, he is really big so i understood that i would bleed. i have been taking birth control for about four months now and we also used a condom, but we did touch parts when we were playing around before intercourse. okay so the first day i bled and had normal discharge that smelled like well sweat and milk, second day i had a creamy white mucus-y discharge that smelled like sweat but not as bad as on Monday, Wednesday (today)my discharge has blood in it again but its my normal clear discharge and it smells like it usually does and it doesn't itch and i feel normal and im not sore at all but i cant help but think this isn't normal, i might be being a bit of a hypochondriac but its my first time and im worried about an infection also my period is next Wednesday and i want to be able to wear tampons but i dont know if i will be healed enough for that or if it would be unhealthy to do so after having sex so soon. and also i took a small mirror to look down there and i noticed that inside there was some swollen tissue im not sure if thats my cervix swelling or something else... im terribly sorry if this has been posted before by someone just as worried as i am.

Have you used a mirror to look at your genitals before this, to know what they look like when you haven't recently had any kind of sex and also when you have had some kinds of sex (not just intercourse)?

As well, have you been observant about your discharges on a daily bases in the past, before this last week when you've been observing them?

yes and before i didnt see the tissue and the opening wasnt as big and we only tried fingering and normal sex no anal or oral yet.
yes i have and it was normal then we had sex and it was abnormal then normal again is it just my body going through its cleaning cycles? normally it doesn't get so mucus like but since this is my first time having sex it okay right?

Well, if and when we've been sexually aroused and/or have had any kind of genital sex with friction, it does tend to temporarily change how things look. Inflammation that's temporary isn't unusual, especially just a day or two after, and/or if you did things that hurt, didn't use lubricant as needed or just overdid it.

With the changes to your mucus, there was probably a little lubricant on the condom, which is one common thing that tends to change that. As well, because intercourse involves a good deal of friction, it can kind of "whip up" your normal discharges and the lube in a way other kinds of sex might not.

It sounds like everything is probably just fine here, and also like it'll be fine for you to use tampons with your period next week. If you do feel like your discharges get funky per your observations again soon, then you'll just want to check in with your sexual healthcare provider to be sure it's all good. As well, since you're both sexually active, soon enough you'll want to start getting tested for STIs regularly, and when you have that appointment, you'll also have the opportunity to ask about things like this.

Oh God I'm so glad I saw this! THe exact same thing happened to me and I am glad to know im not in a boat by myself. It was also my very first time and I got worried because the discharge thing and the itchiness, and soreness. I'm so glad they have sites like these!
