Hello, this is charley. I m 19.
I already had completed my menstruation cycle 5 days before I had sex. (Last period dates are- from 28th April to 30th April).
We had sex on 5th may. We used male condom. It was my first time so I felt some pain with bleeding during and after having intercourse.
But by the end of 7th may, pain n bleeding was nearly gone.
but on 8th of may,in the morning- (2 days after I had safe sex) i bled with 4-5 drops without pain. Bright red colour. N then i put a senitary napkin to check if I'd bleed. But I haven't till now.

Please let me know if I should wait till my next period date which is probably 27-28 may- or I should see a gynac asap?
I am confused and worried. Thank you.

Hello charley912

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. I am glad you reached out to us with your concern.

The bleeding and pain may have been caused by having intercourse for the first time.

At this time, I do not think you need to be seen by a gynecologist. If you continue to be sexually active, please allow time for foreplay and adequate lubrication.

This bleeding should not be considered your period.

Keep in touch if we can be of further help,

Thank you so much, Maryann.
This has reduced my tension.
I was just worried because I knew I'd bleed right after having intercourse. But this bleeding was after two days, else everything is fine.
N I ll ask for advices if I ll need some. Thanks.
