In other words, for many women in history, proving to be a virgin through blood could literally save their lives. Historically, there have also been some issues of cultural expectations for men and women alike afoot around this, like the notion that a marriage wasn't really bonafide unless it had been consummated, so blood on the sheets proved a married couple had had sex. But usually, there's only blood that first time. The idea that bleeding proved a man had truly "broken in" a woman via intercourse was, and sometimes still is, popular. As well, arousal and lubrication is an issue with this one, too. Based on what we know from medicine, and what sex educators know from talking to people about this, the first three situations are the most common causes of vaginal bleeding, not the last. It's been about two days. In this case, seeking medical attention as soon as possible is advised. In that case, the corona often just slides to the side of the vaginal opening a lot like the inner labia stay to the side during intercourse. When it all comes down to it, they've never really been about women at all, but about the way men and the world at large decided women are or are not valuable based not only in sexism, but in ignorance about our bodies. Because of an infection or other medical condition. Pregnancy can also happen if cum gets on or near your vulva your outside genitals , or if fingers that have wet cum on them touch your vulva or vagina. Even in relationships or communities today where bleeding or not isn't such a dire matter, some women are still dishonest with friends, family or partners about bleeding because -- mostly because of all this history -- they worry something is or was wrong with them if they didn't, feel ashamed they didn't bleed, worry someone will question that it really was their first time, or feel they need to tell partners they bled in order to satisfy them. Suffice it to say, if a woman isn't consenting to sex at all, but is sexually assaulted, bleeding is very common for this reason. But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: If it does happen, you just clean it up, and then use a menstrual pad if you need to.
