Relaxation and Arousal Though it's normal to be nervous, if you're with someone you trust, enjoy other kinds of sex with, and with whom you feel safe, you should be pretty relaxed. Though it's normal to feel excited and antsy at the same time. If you aren't, be sure and take stock. You may just be nervous because you're doing something new, but it's also possible you or your partner aren't ready, you don't want to, or you aren't really with someone you trust or feel safe with. Trust your gut feelings, and be sure your heart and your head have good communication, too.
The hymen is a thin tissue that stretches across the opening of the vagina and when broken it can and will bleed. In fact, you may even want to bring it up. I find talking about things that seem embarrassing can take away a lot of their power real or imagined. Take care and feel free to reach out if you have any additional questions!! I've heard a lot of stories about other women's first experiences yes, even we moms still remember back that far.
Does a woman always bleed when she has sex for the first time?
How long after a girl's first time should they bleed for and how heavy should they bleed? There aren't any "shoulds" here. Not all people with vaginas bleed with first-time intercourse or other kinds of vaginal entry: Why some people do -- and for how long they do -- and some don't also varies.
