User avatar Hello Naz123,

Thank you for posting your question. How much blood are we talking about and is it continuing or has it stopped. If its still there or you continue to have pain then you need to be examined. If not and you are currently in no pain or bleeding then it is advisable to refrain from anal intercourse for a while to give the wound a chance to heal.

Best regards,
