Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

It is not essential for a woman to bleed the first time she has sex even if she is a virgin. Bleeding during first time sex is associated with rupture of hymen. However, in present days when women like you might have done lot of physical activities like exercises, cycling, sports and also masturbation, the hymen might have ruptured long back even if you were still a virgin. Please discuss this with your boyfriend and take the help of a sex counselor if required. A woman may not know that her hymen has broken because it doesn’t always cause pain or noticeable bleeding. Even if your hymen broke the first time you had sex, bleeding need not necessarily occur.
