We understand how unsettling this experience must have been for you. It’s completely natural to feel concerned when something unexpected happens during intimate moments. Please know that you’re not alone in facing this situation, and we’re here to help shed some light on what might have caused the bleeding.
Experiencing bleeding during sexual activity can happen for a variety of reasons. One common cause is vaginal dryness. Insufficient lubrication can lead to friction, which in turn may cause small tears in the delicate vaginal tissues, resulting in bleeding. It’s important to remember that these tears can occur even without any noticeable pain or discomfort.
Another possibility is that your partner’s or your own actions might have inadvertently caused some minor trauma to the vaginal area, leading to bleeding. Additionally, certain conditions like cervical ectropion, vaginal infections, or even the presence of uterine fibroids can make bleeding during sex more likely.
