Question: Bleeding without penetration???

 gbaby0589 - Wed Aug 31, 2005 8:25 pm

Hi, I've been dating this guy for about 9 months now. We are crazy in love and both virgins. We've talked about having sex and we feel really comfortable with eachother. We hve also played with eachother's intimate body parts before and enjoyed it alot. However this time when he fingered me i bled. Did he brake my hymen with out penetration and will this happen again if he does penetrate?

He could have accidentally torn it while he was doing that.. But it could also be from the inside. If he has longish fingernails, you might wanna ask him to clip them because they can scratch at the inside of your vagina and make it bleed a little. It probably will happen again if he penetrates you. Some girls don't experience any pain or blood when they loose their virginity, some feel a little discomfort..But for most the hymen will tear a little (Not a whole lot) and bleed a bit..
