my boyfriend takes my virginity but the time we have sex it doesn’t bleed..but he is my first intercourse…why is it? hope you can give a good advice…
You don’t have to worry. The simple answer is: some people just don’t bleed the first time they have vaginal sex. It’s normal to have bleeding the first time you have sex, but it’s also normal not to.
Vaginas have a thin tissue that stretches across part of the opening. This is called a hymen. Sometimes when girls have vaginal sex for the first time, their hymen gets stretched open, which can cause pain or bleeding. But the hymen can also naturally stretch from things like sports, using a tampon, or putting fingers or other objects in the vagina. And many girls are born with very little hymenal tissue to begin with, so it may seem like they don’t have a hymen at all. Whether you bleed the first time you have sex or not, you and your hymen are completely normal!
Virginity can be a confusing subject for many people, but there’s no reason to feel weird or ashamed if you didn’t bleed the first time you had vaginal sex. Read more about the hymen and virginity.
