Dear Recently Had Sex and It Hurt a Lot,

TeenHealthFX appreciates your concern. Each woman’s first sexual intercourse experience is different; some experience pain, while others do not. Additionally, bleeding may occur due to the hymen stretching. If you continue to experience discomfort, bleeding, or any other symptoms following intercourse, you should contact your doctor.

You described pink-like flesh coming out of your vagina. FX suggests scheduling an appointment with your gynecologist so he/she can conduct a pelvic exam. TeenHealthFX advises you to read the Center for Young Women’s Health resource so you are both prepared and comfortable for your first pelvic exam. Being that you are sexually active, it is critical that you attend annual GYN exams. If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist or contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood. You can also contact your insurance company for a list of in-network providers.

TeenHealthFX feels it would be a good idea for you to check out our Resource of the Month: Planned Parenthood Resources on Safer Sex so you can learn about sexual readiness, birth control, STDs, pregnancy tests, emergency contraception, myths and facts about sex and more. The more educated you are and the more precautions you take when it comes to being sexually active, the less likely you will find yourself in a situation where you are dealing with an unwanted pregnancy or the transmission of an STD.
