Some girls bleed the first time they have sex, but not all girls do. The reason
some girls bleed the first time they have sex is because their hymen stretches or
tears. The hymen is a very thin piece of skin-like tissue that partly covers the opening
of the vagina. Some
girls are born without much of a hymen. Other girls' hymens cover a large portion
of the vagina's opening. It all depends on the girl.
Whether a girl bleeds also partly depends on whether the hymen is stretched or
torn before sex. It is possible for this to happen from vigorous physical activity,
tampon insertion, and
masturbation or fingering.
Remember to always use a condom
every time you have sex, including the first time, to help protect against pregnancy
