my boyfriend was fingering me and masturbating me, while he was doing it, i bleed, not too much, but there was light blood spots (small)for 3 days. is it dangerous?? should i be worried and why i did bleed ?
You’re probably just fine. A few things could have caused this bleeding: your boyfriend’s fingers may have stretched your hymen, which is a thin tissue that stretches over the opening of some people’s vaginas. Sometimes this can cause the hymen to bleed, which is why some people see blood the first time they have penis-in-vagina sex, or any kind of penetration. This is totally normal and should go away within a few days.
The other thing that could be going on is you might just be having spotting (where there’s light bleeding and/or brownish discharge but you’re not on your period), which could be totally unrelated to the fingering.
Your boyfriend may have also scratched the inside of your vagina or your cervix, which can cause bleeding. This can be a problem if bacteria gets into the scratches and causes an infection.
Long story short, if you have any pain, discomfort, or itching that doesn’t go away, or the bleeding continues, see a doctor to make sure everything’s okay. Most likely though, what’s going on is totally normal and not dangerous.
