Hey Im new on here. But I didn't really know what to do so I thought I would give this ago. Hopefully Ill get some answers.

Im 18 and just had protected sex with my boyfriend. I told him that I had finished my period..which I had. It finished just over a day ago. (I havent had any bleeding in between at all.) Then after we finished... he went all aukward on me. Then he left the room and i went to get dressed and notised some blood smears on the inside of my legs.

Would this just be because I had recently finished my period??? Im guessing so. Im just really wanting to know if anyone else has had the same problem. And for those who have.. what do you say to your partner!!!!!

Its so embarrasing and I have no idea what to say to him. I know I couldnt help it but I feel scared to be intimiate with him again because he might be thinkning about what happened.

Help!!!

It could be that there was still blood inside of you, but not enough to flow out of your body; hence it would seem as though your period was over. And the penetration during intercourse could have made the excess blood come out. Tell your boyfriend that it's just a little blood and it won't hurt anything and that your period was over but there was still blood inside. I'm not a doctor, but have had similar experiences and know others who have as well, it's not uncommon and it's definately nothing to be embarassed or worried about.

nzchick, Most women will have some menstrual debris left over in their uterus after they stopped flowing. At the end of your period, your cervix closes up and this debris might be trapped inside your uterus, and stay there or slowly leak out over the next few days. An orgasm will send contractions through your uterus. This may force this left over debris out through your cervix.

This can also happen a day or two before you start your period when orgasmic contractions may cause your uterus to start bleeding and shedding early.

Sit down with him and have a private discussion about this with him. If he does not understand a woman's cycle, explain menstruation and ovulation to him. Explain to him that he does not have to go all awkward on you. Your menstrual blood is not dangerous, harmful or evil. That it is OK for him not to want to see it, or feel embarrassed about it but that it is a normal bodily function for every fertile woman. It is just a fact of life. If he wants to exchange bodily fluids with you, he should expect to see some blood at times.

If you are feeling up for it, you should also discuss having period sex with him. Explain to him that it is OK and that you can keep it clean.

Best of luck.

I had a similar experience. I thought that my period had ended, so we had sex. About an hour later I went to the bathroom and I was bleeding. It's two days later, and I'm still bleeding. I was just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. I'm not bleeding heavily, but I am wearing a liner.

I always have spotting after having sex, once my period has ended. My Fiancee seems way cool with whatever is wrong with my body. I've had a bleeding scare both before and after my Period. If we had sex 12-24 hrs before I've had light bleeding, same with 12-24 hrs after.
My fiancee seems to travel with a towel as if he already knows that there might be blood. Plus he and I have discussed Menstruation, Cycles, "flow", and Keeping Clean.
So when End Of Menstruation Sex happens, we cover the bed with a towel. Then whatever comes out, comes out.

I have had that happen to me also. It was two days later and it bleed a little. He asked me if i was on my period or getting ready to start. I told him i already had it and it could have come from nothaving sex for several months.
Could that be a reason for this also, not doing it on a regular?

I think your orgasm started your uterus to shed its lining a little.

An orgasm and menstrual cramps are the same things, contractions in the muscular uterus wall. If there are still uterus lining left (it happens) or there were menstrual debris still left in your uterus, sexual activity can cause this to come out, or even your period to start again for a bit.

Hi, I'm new here, I'm just trying to find some answers.
Last night my boyfriend and I had sex, (it was my first time, and it was pretty rough * sorry if that's too much information*) but durring, I orgasmed and there was a lot of blood. We didn't know it happened. After we were finished I went to the restroom and found that I was bleeding severely. I had just finished my period two days before. I want to know if this is "normal". And especially with bleeding so much. I'm scared of what happened. And I'm even more scared to disscuss this with my boyfriend.
( please excuse my poor spelling)

Hi, the day after my period ended me and the guy I'm seeing were getting intimate when he told me that I was bleeding. I went to the bathroom and cleaned myself up but about an hour later I realised that I was bleeding quite severely. It had completely soaked my underwear and shorts. This continued on for about 6 or so hours with blood clots the size of dollar coins (really gross I know). One of my girlfriends suggested that it may have been because I'd just finished my period but I wanted to get a second opinion because it really didn't seem normal.

My husband and I have unprotected sex trying to get pregnant but still have intercourse with me when I am on my Cycle. He doesn't mind because I'm his wife and he said its totally natural to have sex on the period

If he loves you he shouldn't be all awkward on you but to accept what happen, put a towel under you so that he can get cleaned off like my man. Now first things first I would suggest to have a serious talk that if he can't accept that he should learn. My man finds having sex during a period is a turn on because its like natural lubrication and that it makes the vagina tighter and more intense orgasms.

But what my man said is for him to grow up
