Well this is an extention from my last message, The message was the "Will my period stop if i get pregnant while on my period?" What if it really wasn't my period? i started having sex about 5 months ago and i've never bled before, not even the first time...when we first thought it was my period he had been fingering me pretty hard...and when he stoped i was bleeding...my period is usually around this time so i thought thats' what it was...we had sex anyway and i didn't continue bleeding...so what if he just "popped my cherry"...is that still possible after 5 months?

There is no cherry, darlin. That term is largely not literal, just means someone has done something for the first time. It's based on some women with partial hymens experiencing bleeding during vaginal penetration.

And no: if you've been sexually active for some time now, it's unlikely you've had hymenal tearing just now. But other things, like lack of lubrication, a partner being too rough, lack of full arousal, nervousness -- can also cause abrasion and thus bleeding during intercourse.

But again, if you're concerned about this, it's something you can ask about when you go get than GYN exam and those STI screenings.
