Ok, I just recently lost my virginity. I'm not on birth control, we used a condom.

I broke my hymen years ago, from other causes, and the first time there was definately pain, but nothing else.

Then we had sex again a few nights later, and went a little bit rougher. We used lube this time, which reeeeally stung me. Anyway, when we were done, I went to the bathroom and noticed I was spotting blood.

Now, its nowhere close to my period so it cant be that. Its the day after now, and I'm still spotting blood.

Could it have been friction or roughness? Maybe I broke some more of my hymen? I'm really worried, please say its probably just because I'm so new to sex...

If it's just spotting, you're not near your period, and you say you were a bit rough, then yeah, I'd say the blood is from that. If you didn't use lube the first time, there might have been those micro-tears, causing a bit of the stinging you felt, too.

If the bleeding continues, consult a doc, but if not, just use more lube next time. Lots of lube is a great way to prevent those tears, especially if you're going a bit rough.

(Too, if the lube is of the warming variety, ditch that- many people find that stuff stings like heck! Good old plain water based stuff like Astroglide is the safest choice.)
