Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. The simple answer to your question is no.

When a woman loses her virginity, the hymen, which is a very thin membrane that partially covers the vaginal opening can be torn and have some bleeding.

While nearly all girls are born with a hymen, the size of the hymen can vary greatly. Some women’s hymens are gradually torn over the years due to self-masturbation, tampon use or sexual activities such as finger stimulation.

As a result, by the time a woman first experiences intercourse, she may notice only small amounts of bleeding, or none at all. Others notice larger amounts of bleeding.
