Question: Bleeding After external masturbation
|sweetcheeks21001 - Tue Nov 17, 2009 5:42 pm||
The past couple of times i have masturbated i have experienced bleeding afterwards. I havent inserted anything so there couldnt be irritation. The bleeding is not a lot, just some spotting, with a few clots and it ends shortly after. I don't understand why this is happening. My nipples are very tender and have been for about 2 weeks but the rest of my breasts feel fine. Could this be pregnancy? Im not experiencing any pregnancy symptoms but my period is 4 days late. Im very worried about what is going on with my body. Im 19 years old, Not a virgin, but not very sexually active.

Whether or not you are pregnant will depend on many factors such as when you had intercourse. The changes you describe are often associated with hormonal changes which can be the result of pregnancy, but not necessarily. Hormones are not static, but changing all the time so period fluctuation is quite normal. I don't know the cause of your bleeding, but in pregnancy you often do have more fragile small blood vessels in the pelvic region so it is possible. If you had sex during this menstrual cycle and since you are late on your period, you may wish to take a pregnancy test to be sure. This is something you can watch and wait on to see if things get back to normal soon.
