Bleeding from fingering
Posted on: 07/21/2006
Hello. I am a 16 year-old-virgin. My boyfriend and I have been dating for six months, and he has been fingering me for at least three months. He started out only using two fingers, but after a while, I wouldn't get off as easily, so he moved to 3 fingers. That is where we have been for a while. He is ever so gentle at first, but when I say its OK, he gets a little rougher. I would never bleed after he did it. And it usually lasted about 15 minutes. Although, recently, we have started getting rougher, and a couple of times, he tried 4 fingers. But I have started bleeding slightly. It has only happened one time (at just a VERY little bit the time before). But we decided to take a break from that for a while. Because I have a slight pain afterward for a day or so. What is happening? And I'm not on my period.
Bleeding after your boyfriend inserts his fingers is not normal, unless he is ripping your vaginal tissue, which is too rough. There is no way anyone can see what is wrong unless they examine you, so it is time to see a doctor, especially since you are obviously sexually active. Please get an exam and talk about your sexual activity so you can be tested for sexually transmitted diseases.
