Question:

I just experienced my first time at having sex. My hymen was torn and there was blood. The next time I have sex will there be blood again?


Answer:

Congratulations on your recent marriage. Like any wound, it may take a few days for the tear to completely heal. If you have sex again in a short period of time, there might be a small amount of blood if the wound reopens, but nothing like the first time. There also might be a small amount of discomfort, but again, not like you felt the first time. Once the tear heals, however, the only blood you'll see is your normal menstrual flows and the discomfort will be completely gone.
