Intercourse for the first time

Is it normal for a girl to bleed the first time she has intercourse?
Is there something wrong if she doesn’t bleed?
Is it sore the first time?
From a girl, 14.


The hymen is a thin membrane a couple of centimetres inside the opening of the vagina. It can get torn when it is stretched the first time a woman has intercourse, so it may bleed a little then. It may also be a little painful and perhaps bleed a bit because the vagina is not moist enough or because a woman may be nervous and tenses the muscles around the vagina. It is also totally normal for a woman not to bleed the first time she has intercourse.
