Bleeding after sex after vaginoplasty
You probably had a small tear which should heal uneventfully, but no more sexual intimacy until you've been checked by your doc; you may need to wait a few more weeks for this to fully heal.
In the meantime, you may wish to discover the sensual joys of other areas of your body...

Go see your surgeon
Sometimes the vagina is incompletely healed at 6 weeks. If so, you may have experienced a small skin tear, but you need to be checked.
Discomfort is expected the first time
It is normal for the first intercourse after surgery to be uncomfortable and a bit painful, .. You need to use a lot of lubrication. Sometimes a tiny bit of bleeding may occur (spotting), and if it is very minimal and stops quite shortly after intercourse there shouldn't be much to worry about. However if you do have persistent bleeding and lot of it ,please do contact your surgeon... so just take it slow the first couple of times.
