Okay, well, last night I was masturbating (with a brush handle. clean and used a condom over it) and when I was done, I noticed I was bleeding.

Is my hymen not all the way broken down? I have manual sex countless times and I haven't bled before. Last night was the first time I stuck something other than my fingers in me. Or am I just doing something wrong when masturbating?

I just tried for like 30 seconds about 5 minutes ago to see if I would bleed again, and sure enough I did.

Any suggestions?

Also, like, its approximatly 28 days after your period where you begin your next one, right? Well, do you count 28 days form the first day of your period, or the last day you have your period?

Were you very aroused before you inserted this into your vagina?

Did this actually feel good to you?

I ask because for a majority of women, vaginal insertion alone isn't the ticket, and to boot, vaginal insertion without high arousal and other vulval (usually clitorial) or whole body play tends to be premature. In other words, your vagina won't be loosed and lubricated enough to have that feel good and to not wind up with some abrasions.

It could also be a patrial hymen, especially if you had any pain with entry, and that's easy enough to find out: just look at your vaginal opening with a hand mirror. But even then, when you're well-lurbricated and aroused, that tissue is so thin and stretchy that bleeding shouldn't be happening.

(And when you know something is making you bleed? No need to keep doing it.)

Per periods, 28 days is the average cycle. So, plenty of women have 28 day cycles, but plenty of women have cycles both shorter and longer than 28 days. To count, you always begin with the first day of your period.
