Resolved Question:

Hi, I just got married and had sex for the first time. My husband had never had sex before me either (so this rules out an STD)...Last weekend, after sex, I bled a lot. I thought this might be normal, but every time I have had sex after that, I find a tiny trace of light blood on the toilet this normal? I use the birth control pill and take it every day faithfully. I also had my period 2 weeks ago.

Thanks for just answer,

Bleeding after first intercourse is common and occur due to rupture of hymen.

Little bleeding after that can be due to erosion in the vaginal canal and will settle on its own.

You can try using lubricants if there is recurrent bleeding and pain.

If bleeding is significant please contact your doctor if possible a gynecologist.

Okay there is nothing probably wrong and I would not be pregnant?
Expert:  DR MED MD replied 9 years ago.
No pregnancy can not be ruled out at this time. If you miss your next period do a home pregnancy test after two weeks of missed periods and if it comes negative repeat test after7-10 days to rule out pregnancy.

It is too early to tell about pregnancy.
You can do blood test for early detection of pregnancy , it is not really required at this time.
