    I had sex for the first time ever last night and i found out when i got home that i was bleeding i put a period pad on but i was worried that i wasnt supposed to be bleeding
    Is it normal for a girl to bleed the first time of having sex or not? And how long should i waait to have sex again?

    It's quite normal to bleed but if it lasts more than a day or 2 possibly get it checked out by your GP. I'm not sure how long you can wait but again I'd say wait atleast a day or 2 just to let you heal up a bit.

    The bleeding is the hymen tearing, it shouldn't be excessive amounts.
    Usually after the clear up and initially shock of what's happened, you're okay to go again.
