Can soreness of vagina after interocurse be considered normal?

Hello, I stayed round my boyfriends 2 nights ago and we thought it was time too have sex he's done it before but it was my first time. He never put a condom on and I'm not sure why? He put his penis in slowly but it was very painful. Eventually we had too stop because it really hurt. I'v been sore the past couple of days and I thought thats because I'v been stretched open a little bit. I'v just come out the shower and there was a tiny tiny bit of blood what is this?

Hi,

It may be normal. Hymen break is the most possible reason, during hymen break, there will be tearing type of pain or knife cutting pain. There will be spotting for a day or two, pain for 2 to 3 days, some time difficulty in walking due to pain.

Other reason for pain
1.     Vaginal Infection
2.     Allergic to semen (use a condom next time to identify )
3.     Dryness – infection, improper foreplay, dehydration, age factor, hormonal imbalance
4.     Benign or malignant polyp.
5.     Foreign bodies due to unhygienic sexual intercourse
6.     Anatomical abnormalities
7.     Vaginismus
8.     Eczema.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. S.R.Raveendran, Sexologist

Hi! I have a question about sex.I haven t had any sex in about a year, and now me and this guy have been having a lot of sex, pretty intense, a few times in about a week. Now I m experiencing that my vaginal opening is aching a bit and itching also a bit of redness, as far as we know, the guy I m with should be clean, and me also. Is it normal to feel this uncomfortable feeling, since it s been so long since I last had sex or could it be something else? Also what can I do about it?
