    i've been having sex with my boyfriend for about 5 months now and ive never had a problem, we had sex about a week after my period and it hurt but i didnt care so we kept going but when i went to the bathroom afterwards i was bleeding we thought it was just the last bit of my period or something but then we had sex again after a week and it did it again and it hurt really bad that time i don't know what to do i can't go to the doctor cause my parents don't know anything. i looked up what it could be and i think its vaginal wall tear if it is i want to know if i can heal it without having to go to the doctor about it. please get back to me as soon as u can! it still hurts and its been two days

    Hi Shay,

    From what you've described, it does sound like you may have a vaginal wall tear. Unless you were having very aggressive sex, it is probably not too severe. Whether or not you need to see a doctor will depend on the extent of the tear.  Does it bleed even without intercourse?  If it does, then the tear is probably extensive enough that you should be checked.  If it's just a little spotting or only happens with penetration, then it is probably superficial and will heal on its own.  First and foremost, no sex!  I hope you have been using condoms because that will cut down on the chances of an infection, but no intercourse now with or without a condom.  You need to let it heal completely.  If the soreness doesn't go away soon even without sex, then you definitely need to see a doctor to check the extent of any tear and see if you have an infection.

    Good luck,

    Sandy

      If there is any chance the bleeding is still from a tear, you need to see your primary doctor.  Even if you're wondering if your period is part of it, it would be wiser to have it checked than to wait.

      Good luck to you,

      Sandy

      this is the second time this has happened.  i was using kotex tampons and never had a problem, here lately if i use kotex it leads to problems so i switched to tampax pearl and no problems, well i ran out and grabbed to cheapest stuff and it was kotex.  now, again i am in pain when i remove the tampon, sit, walk or anything.  it sounds like a tear from maybe the absorbtion being to large.  what can i do to stop the pain?

      If your vagina is that vulnerable, I would recommend you stop using tampons and see your gynecologist for a prescription for vaginal estrogen.  The estrogen will actually thicken (basically heal) the tissues.

      Good luck,

      I have a similar problem, but I don't get any pain.  About a week before my period me and my boyfriend had sex and there was blood during sex but right after I stopped bleeding, I went and saw my doctor and she said that it probably has to do with my NuvaRing and that if I still bleed after my period then she would switch me to a different birth control.. It is still happening, and my doctor is out of town for the next couple weeks.  I would like a second opinion.. I don't think it is a tear because I have no pain, but there is a lot of blood then just a little spotting.

      I would definitely seek a 2nd opinion. You should not have any bleeding with intercourse and if the Nuvaring is causing that to happen you need it out. This is not an issue to wait out. There is probably a reasonably simple explanation but it needs to be investigated so it does not become complicated. Good luck to you, Sandy Greenquist, CNM Menopause Clinician READ MORE

      I have the same problem right now. I think i have teared my vagina wall whilst having sex. To be brutally honest we went a bit rough pretty much as soon as we started sex, i think i wasn't lubricated enough and it has ended in a split. It has happened before but it was only spotting of blood. However i haven't stopped bleeding yet from this morning. When i pee it doesn't hurt however i have a slight pain i could only explain as being sort of like period pains. I know it isn't my period as i only had one 2 weeks ago and im on the pill so its always 3 weeks apart. I'm not sure what to do or if i should go visit the doctors. Help please?

    Men my boyfriend were having sex and we were "going hard" and I kinda felt like a sharp pain before he pulled out. But then I went pee and there was little blood. And its been 3 weeks and my vagina still hurts. Even if we do foreplay. Its a sharp pain when it goes in. Bit after its in it doesn't really hurt that bad. But it only hurts at a certain spot and I don't know what it is.
