Question: Rectal Bleeding after self "love"

 melissa.lynn85 - Fri Jan 23, 2009 6:05 am

I really enjoy anal sex. I have never had any problems until tonight. My husband is gone over seas so tonight I was feeling a little bit frisky and decided to pleasure myself. I have had anal sex before and I have also used "toys" before as well. Tonight when I was pleasuring myself everything was fine. No pain. I was using a toy in my anus but nothing bigger then my husband, so I know it wasn't that the size was too big. After I finished I noticed there was alot of blood coming from my anus. It was dripping and running down my leg. It frightened me quite a bit. Please help me out. Thank you.

User avatar Hello,
It was probably either some tissue trauma or an internal hemorrhoid that was ruptured. If the bleeding continues it would be wise to have it checked out. I suspect it will heal and not continue.

Best wishes.
