Bleeding after fingering
Posted on: 01/27/2007
I've been reading about brown discharge but I haven't found anything to answer my question. I'm 16 years old and me and my boyfriend don't have sex, but sometimes after he fingers me I?ll start to bleed. I have no idea what it is can you please help?
Chances are good that you are not finding the answer because you are looking under the wrong question. You are probably bleeding because he has damaged your hymen - the thin piece of tissue inside your vagina that is usually torn during first intercourse.
As you are obviously being sexual, it is time to discuss birth control and condom use - please do not just "let sex happen."
