Question: Virginity loss - womens' specialist appointment necessary?

 despinapapagena - Mon Nov 12, 2007 1:28 pm

I'm a 19-year-old female college freshman, and on Friday I lost my virginity. Everything that happened was to be expected, essentially: it hurt more than it felt good, I bled lightly all weekend, etc. Once again, these things probably aren't out of the ordinary, but let's just say size-wise, it was a bit of a tight squeeze. I don't feel any pain and the bleeding is pretty much gone now (Monday), but I just wanted to know if I should see a gynecologist immediately or just wait until my next regular appointment.

P.S. I probably won't be having sex again anytime soon, and I don't think my parents need to hear about this one-time thing. However, I can't get an appointment anytime soon with my specialist at home, and in order to go to the health center at my university, I have to fill out my immunization record again - which requires information from my parents. Any advice?

User avatar If the bleeding stops and you aren't having continued pain you probably do not need to rush in. What you have experienced can definitely fall in the normal range, especially if your partner was not as gentle as you might have liked or lubrication was lacking. You may have had an intact hymen which could be why you bled.

I'm sorry your experience was less than pleasant. Best wishes in the future.
