Dear Bleeding After Anal Sex,

 

Because the lining of the anus is thin and fragile, it is very easy for cuts, tears or some other kind of trauma to occur to this area during anal sex. If you are experiencing bleeding out of the anus since performing anal sex, it is possible that the lining of the anus was cut or torn in some way. FX thinks that it is important for you to meet with a medical health professional as soon as possible so that it can be determined whether this bleeding is a result of anal sex or something else – and so that you can get whatever treatment may be necessary.

FX is also concerned that you are participating in anal sex at such a young age – 14 is very young to be engaging in such a risky sexual act. FX would like you to consider whether you truly feel ready to be sexually active in terms of what you need to know about what is physically involved when it comes to sex, the responsibilities of practicing safer sex, emotional readiness to deal with the positive and negative emotions that come up with sex, and the comfort level of seeking out medical help when needed (such as in your current situation).

If you plan on continuing to practice anal sex, please use a new, clean condom each and every time you have anal sex along with a water-based lubricant. For more information on safer anal sex and the dangers associated with anal sex, please read What Is Anal Sex?, Safe Anal Sex, and Are There Special Risks When Anal Sex Is Between 2 Men?

As for your period, some girls find that their periods may be slightly irregular soon after they first start menstruating. Others find their periods become irregular because of such factors as stress, over-exercising, and poor diet and nutrition. Your menstrual cycle could certainly be affected by the stress you are under, however, it is impossible for FX to make an accurate diagnosis about this over the internet. When you meet with a doctor to discuss the rectal bleeding, FX suggests that you speak with him/her about this issue as well so you can get a clear idea of what may have contributed to you early period and if it is anything that requires treatment. 

If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-6475 for an appointment or Girl’s Street – A Young Woman’s Health Program – at 908.522.2555. You can also contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.
