So I had sex for the first (and so far only) time a couple of months ago. At the beginning, there was a large, sharp pain, but then it went away and everything seemed fine. But then a bit later, we realized I was bleeding.

And I don't mean "bleeding" like some spotting, or even a period. We're talking blood all over him and me and the floor, practically gushing all over the place (to the guy's credit, he freaked out about this less than I did). As we cleaned it up, we only half joked that someone would think a murder had taken place. It lasted for a short while, probably less than an hour (during which I put on a proper pad), but the sheer volume and speed and suddenness of the event was kind of alarming.

So can anyone shed some light over why it happened? Truth be told, I wasn't expecting any bleeding, given what I've read/how I normally treat my vagina. The whole thing was admittedly rather spontaneous and we didn't use any lube, so that was definitely a contributing factor, but I feel like even then "irritational bleeding" should not have been so... voluminous. Any ideas?

I'm not sure flickster, but I'm not surprised you were alarmed, that sounds like a whole lotta blood.

Given that it didn't seem like a period, and the pain, it sounds to me as though you may have somehow split some skin, perhaps in the corona area, and that this was a bleeding cut, not unlike a cut elsewhere on the body. At times a lot of blood can come from a relatively small wound, and there would be a very high level of circulation in your pelvic area, especially if you were very aroused, which might have contributed.

I'd add that it's great you've done that reading and so this experience was better than it could have been. Of course, as in your case, bleeding and pain during first-time sex, even when aroused sure can happen, it just isn't as common as many people assume.

I'm glad to hear the bleeding stopped, which hopefully means that whatever it was is healing, but if you have access to a gynaecologist I would certainly consider getting an examination to make sure that there's nothing else going on.

Also if you do have any more of this kind of sex, I might also take care to use lube.

Thank you! I did see a doctor soon afterwards, though there wasn't a full examination. It was a bit sore for a time afterwards, but everything seems normal now. And I made an immediate vow to lube up in the future, so hopefully that's the end of it. [Smile]
