It does not sound unusual. During the first few times parts of your body that has never been touched are stretched and can develop small tears. This is nothing to be concerned about and it will heal by itself. If you still experience this after about the 5th time, it is time to see your doctor.

It is also quite possible that the sex and orgasm speeded up the arrival of your period. When you have an orgasm, your uterus wall contracts. This is the same type of contraction that you experience as menstrual cramps during your period. It will loosen and squeeze the menstrual flow from your uterus. Sometimes this can do that before your period was supposed to start.

The hymen is also a weird thing. Some women will not have any pain or blood, Some women will have lots of pain, and/or lots of bleeding.

Take care!
