Hi: I'm 15 and my first sexual experienced happened with my older partner. We didn't lose our virginity but the anal we did. We didn't use protection the first nor second time, but did the third. Later on I noticed specks of blood when I use the restroom. Help
The anus has very fragile tissue and it is not uncommon for there to be a little blood, because there can be little tears in that tissue from the friction and there is less natural lubrication. Those tears also mean that any sexually transmitted bacteria or germs have easy access to your blood stream, so using a condom and lubrication EVERY time is really important.
