Growing up, there is so much hype built up about how your first time should be. You're told to either wait until marriage or to wait until it's with someone you love. However, that's not always the case, and whether you like it or not, losing your virginity is a memory that will stay with you forever. For most people, this does not include rose petals, candles, or Marvin Gaye. To get the real deal, we asked brave women to tell us about their first times. It was unexpected so there was no condom.

If you just had penetrative sex for the first time, you might have stretched or torn your hymen, which is the thin band of tissue at the opening of your vagina. If this is the case for you, you're probably spotting bleeding lightly. The blood will be bright red, even if your period blood is typically darker than that.
