Question: bruises? welts? burst vessels?

 Merboy - Fri Aug 29, 2008 9:16 pm

Hi. I had sex with a guy last night and I was straddled over him. As we had it off, he slapped my bottom, only he didn't quite reach my actual cheeks and instead was slapping the top part of my sides, not quite the fleshy parts. Today, 24 hours later, I looked in the mirror and noticed that I had lots of blotchy red and purple spots where he hit me. I'm not sure if they're bruises or welts or burst blood vessels but they look awful and I want to know if they'll heal and go away or if they'll be on me forever.

Thank you,

User avatar Hello -

Bruises, welts, burst blood vessels -- these are all usually matters of degree; they are all hematomas caused by, in this case, overly-vigorous slapping. They should go away, but it could take a week or so for them to fade, from your description of them. Meanwhile, the question arises: do you bruise easily? Just curious. If the slap was truly hard, that alone could explain this, and it is hardly surprising considering where the slap actually landed.

Hope this helps. Let us know how things go.
