I'm bleeding after having sex for the first time

DEAR DEIDRE: I HAD sex for the first time last night and I am bleeding.

I’m really worried it’s going to put my boyfriend off having sex with me again, and then he’ll break up with me.

It hurt a bit when we had sex, but he said that was normal.

DEIDRE SAYS: Don’t panic. Lots of women bleed after sex for the first time as the hymen – a tiny piece of skin over the entrance to your vagina – has broken.

It should stop quickly, and won’t happen again.

Sex should get more enjoyable and less uncomfortable the more you do it. My support pack, First Time Fears, explains more.

Do make sure you’re using contraception though.
