Looking for vaginal bleeding after first intercourse is not a reliable test of whether or not a woman was a virgin. Also, many healthcare providers feel that so-called “virginity examinations” – in which a woman is examined by a doctor prior to first intercourse – place unfair pressures and burdens on women.

Many young women and men have questions about having sex for the first time and losing one’s virginity. In regard to your question, it is indeed possible to experience vaginal bleeding from either fingering or penile penetration.
