Bleeding After Sex

Dear allbodies,


I understand that slight bleeding after a rough consensual sexual session is normal, but is it dangerous?




Dear #ThisIsHowILikeIt


Slight bleeding or spotting after some rough sex isn’t uncommon and usually is the consequence of small tears, fissures, or sores created during penetration. These post sex inflictions usually heal themselves within a couple days and aren’t a huge issue. However, if the bleeding doesn’t seem to stop, the quality of blood is a lot, you feel unusual, or the area becomes swollen or infected, it’s time to see a doctor. Another potential dangerous thing is the increase in contracting an STI increases dramatically when there are open sores or cuts. Remember to use lube, keep checking in with one another, and allow some healing time between these sessions.

Didn't get the sex-ed you wanted?

Same. So we made you classes on sex + pleasure, trauma, racism, mental health + more!
