hi, I am still confused and stressed about if I will bleed on the wedding night and I cant even afford surgery or go to a doctor to get checked to make sure everything is ok, even though I never had sex but I fell on a bike and inserted a finger to check my self. Please help me
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. Bleeding during intercourse for the first time is due to rupture of hymen. Earlier it was thought that rupture of the hymen during intercourse which is a thin membrane in the vagina is the sign of losing virginity and this causes bleeding.
However, nowadays with so many sporting activities in which women are involved hymen breaks down even before the intercourse. This hymen can be torn during vigorous exercises or horse riding also and sometimes it is so rigid that it does not tear while intercourse. you should not worry about it.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
