Is this normal or do I need to go to a doctor? I'm only 16 and this was the first time I had sex.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

It is normal to bleed after engaging in sexual intercourse for the first time due to your hymen being broken. However, having pain when bleeding is not. Are you experiencing pain only when you urinate? If so, you should go get checked out to make sure you don't have an infection.

Be well,
~Gillette
