Question: Bleeding after masturbation but with no pain

 Mazzidee - Sun Feb 28, 2010 3:43 pm

I'm a 16 year old girl and I'm in a sexual relationship (It's all legal in the UK don't panic). I'm on the Depo Provera contraceptive injection and haven't had a period in about 3 months but recently after masturbation (clitoral only) I've had a bit of bleeding. It's not heavy or painful but it did frighten me the first time I saw it, it's just smears like just before a period starts so I just thought it was the spotting that was noted in the side effects leaflet. I also thought it would go away but that's 3 times now it's happened and I've noticed that it only occurs after I masurbate. I'll be going to see the nurse in a couple of weeks to get my next Depo Provera injection. Has anyone else had this and knows what causes it/ how to stop it or should I speak to the nurse about this? It's starting to worry me...

User avatar Hello,
You can mention it to the nurse but it may just be some uterine contractions which sometimes accompany orgasm. I would not be overly alarmed about it but bleeding that is unexpected should be discussed with your provider to be on the safe side and to rule out infection.

Best wishes.
