Question: Brownish Discharge after Mastrubation followed by Bleeding!

 EcSkim0 - Wed Nov 04, 2009 11:35 pm

Good Day,

I am a 21 year old Female, who is sexually active with one partner. Yesterday I decided to masturbate and insert a round tube into my vagina...etc. I then noticed I had brown discharge a few minutes later, and then chose to insert a Q-tip with Hydrogen Peroxide on it and swabbed. Today, when I woke up and used the restroom, I wiped and noticed I had blood. I am 1 week and a 1/2 or so away from my next menstruation period. I have also been diagnosed with HPV low grade and had a mild cold last week(I took some medication). What is wrong with my body?

User avatar Hello,
I suspect you just had a little trauma that caused the bleeding. It is not likely to be of concern unless bleeding continues. I suspect whatever was injured will heal soon.

Best wishes.
