Do you have bleeding from urethra or vagina?

Was it your first-time sex?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I’m not sure where the bleeding is coming from, only comes when I pee

it was the first time having sex

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, it sounds like hymen tear during first time sex.

Another common cause of bleeding after sex in your situation is the trauma to the vagina during sex causing small tears. This can be avoided by using a lubricant, like KY jelly, outside and inside. Also, have your partner insert the penis before being fully erect.

Now I would recommend some self-care measures like
Do cool water sitz bath with betadine solution twice a day for 5-10 minutes.
And keep the area dry and clean.
Wear loose-fitting cotton clothes to prevent friction.
Take OTC Motrin and Claritin for a few days.
RepHresh Pro-B probiotic supplement that balances yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health with just one capsule per day.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Is it something serious?

It's nothing serious.

A sitz bath is a type of bath in which buttocks and genital area are soaked for 5 -10 minutes.
It helps to relieve the local inflammation.

All medicines are available over the counter from a drug store without any prescription.

If your bleeding will persist for more than 5 days then see your doctor.
