Hi
I'm really sorry if this is the wrong place for this. and it's a bit tmi

But after having sex the other night i noticed i was bleeding, it mostly stopped but there still seems to be a bit very faintly. It was protected sex. Should I see a doctor ? or is that normal ? it wasn't my first time, it's never happened before.
thanks for reading.

    Hi @musicmad - welcome to the boards :wave:

    You've posted in the right place not to worry :)

    Bleeding during or after sex could be due to various reasons - there is some information here in one of our articles regarding bleeding during sexual activities.

    It might be worth a trip to the GP, nurse or GUM clinic to discuss your concerns - what do you think? :)

    thank for the link. i guess it could be a scratch as it was intercourse and fingers. but i didn't feel scratched if that makes sense?
    I think probably will worry until i get it checked out, so i know i should but i'm just worried about having to be examined... ugh
    thanks

    Update: Went to the clinic today, doctor said it was probably nothing and to come back if it happens again.
    thanks :)

    Good news :) Well done for going to get checked out despite feeling a bit nervous about it.

    Hi musicmad. Sounds like you're ok for now but just wanted to give you some info on something else that can be a cause - basically if things are a bit rough/deep and the girl is anywhere near...well..."time of the month"...it can 'dislodge' some blood, if that makes sense. Apparently it's quite common.

    Sorry for tmi but I know this can be a bit scary so wanted to put that explanation forward too for anyone else who might read this :)
