What does it mean if you bleed during or after sex? I received this letter from Mariana: Please Help! Every time me and my girlfriend have sex we seem to bleed. And most of the time it's a lot. I want to know if we are doing anything wrong??? I can't figure it out. Any information would be of great help. Thank you very very much.

After eliminating the obvious causes, like making sure your fingernails are trimmed and you're not on your period, bleeding during sex can actually be a symptom of a greater problem. What does it mean if you bleed during sex?

This occurs with my girlfriend too, but it has only occurred with me and none of her other sexual partners so I am wondering what I am doing wrong as it makes her hesitant to have sex with me. My nails are trimmed to the finger and I neither of us have had this problem with any of our other partners.

this is hard to say you both need to be checked out by a doctor you could have a sexual transmitted disease. i doubt both of you have Cancer but you both should get checked out anyways

Everytime i reach an orgasm point and i think that i cumed she pulls out to see and her had is bloody. But i have no pain during or after us messing around.
I know i was clean of STDs before i got with her but now i am woried that something seroius is wrong.
She told me she was clean to and i believed it.
We never wate eachother out though. only fingered, and wased our hands after we were done.
