Bleeding during and after sex. Reddish Black chunk on tissue. Normal?

I had sex for the first time in four years last night and i starting bleeding during and i am still bleeding tonight but defiantly not as bad. It kind of feels like i could have ripped my vagina a little. I just went to the bathroom and as i wiped i found a reddish black chunk in the toilet paper. it was not completely solid, but a little gooey and i just wanted to know if this is just how my body is healing itself or something that is not normal and that i should worry about.

Hi there,
Thank you for your question.
Having sex after four years can cause one to have bleeding, which is most likely normal and as a result of injury inside your vagina.
However having said that, if you do not have a yearly pap smear you should have one done because one of the cause of bleeding after sex is precancer or cancer of the cervix which needs to be ruled out by doing regular or yearly pap smears. If your previous pap smears have been normal and you have been having them regularly then I would not worry a great deal and I would expect that your bleeding should stop in due course of time as the area heals up properly.
Kindest Regards
