    It is COMPLETELY NORMAL, don't worry.The same thing happened to me and it can happen to anyone. If you feel the need to go to the doctor, go ahead. But I know the feeling. Blood in the undies anytime other than your period can strike fear and confusion into the heart of any woman.

    My theory is this: He straight up, popped your cherry. Your hymen, the little skin inside the vagina, broke and for some girls it bleeds a bit. Then for some girls just a little. Some don't bleed at all and SOME girls are born without them!

    But, if he didn't pick your fruit, the bleeding could be from an abrasion caused by your partner's penis during intercourse. It totally happens. It could be anything but those are only my humble opinions.

    Don't worry, you're going to be fine. Just remember the first thing they teach us in woman school, very girl is different

    Your theory is fine except for the fact that the OP does not appear to be a virgin.

    A good article that describes some of the medical causes for bleeding after intercourse:
