My bf and i lost our virgnities to each other. We've already done it a few times and I still bleed a little afterwards. He uses condoms, so we are safe. Is this normal because I'm worried something might be wrong with me. Can somebody please help me?

Two suggestions:

1) Be sure and use enough latex-safe luybricant with your condoms, like Astroglide. In order for comfort and to avoid tearing the condom and your genital tissues, use lubricant.

2) Now that you're sexually active, it is past time to begin seeing a gynecologist or clinic annually. So why not start now so you can make sure there isn't a physical problem?

It's not too much of a nail-biter since it's normal for a lot of girls to bleed the first few times, but like Miz S said, it's still time to start seeing the gyno for your exams, and to make sure everything's cool with your body.
