hi all.

i have a question, is it normal for me to have some bleeding after i climax after masturbating?

first off, i'm a big girl, so my period has always been screwed up, it's never on schedule and sometimes i go a long time with out having one.

but it seems like no matter what time of month it is, whenever i masturbate and climax, it brings down some blood. i do some minor squirting when i orgasm and blood always comes down with the fluid.

actually it's usually a fairly big clot followed by light bleeding, it never last more than a few hours, but i have to go sit on the toilet and then put on a pad immediately after, which is annoying in the middle of the night.

so is this normal, should i be concerned? is this just backed up menstrual fluid or what? thanks in advance!

Well, if you have irregular periods, then possibly, but your body should be clearing your system out on it´s own. You might want to see your gynecologist and let them know what´s going on so they can check you out. Bleeding while masturbating is not common in women, although it could be that your just not fully aroused before you begin to touch yourself. Is your body producing enough lubrication on it´s own? You might want to go to the store and buy some lubricant, KY Jelly, or Astrolube are two kinds that are mostly used. Make sure you are well lubricated. If the problem persists, again, see your gynecologist. Good luck! [Smile]

Your size shouldn't impact your menstrual cycle, so if you've started your period more than five years ago and it's still very irregular, that's something you'll want to check in with your gynecologist or general physician about.

Bleeding when ejaculating -- in other words, having blood appear from your urethra, as well as from your vagina -- is also something I'd have looked into. It seems you're describing bleeding from two different sites, and that is, in my mind, troubling.

Too, menstrual blood doesn't really clot -- mainly since blood is only one part of menses -- so if you really are seeing clots, not endometrial tissue at times you are, indeed, menstruating, that's something else to bring up with a doctor.

Certainly, when we orgasm, that causes contractions which can shake out some menstrual flow, but that really should only be happening as periods start, during the period, or just after a period.

ohh i was always told that because of my weight, my period would always be irregular. i guess i should have that checked out.

so an the contractions caused by an orgasm can bring down some menstrual fluid? i think that's probably the problem.

i guess i should still make an appointment with the doctor just in case.

thanks for the advice everyone

If you're using your fingers to masturbate, make sure they're cut. The walls of the vagina are pretty sensitive and can tear easily. I've had that problem before a few times. If this is the case for you, give your body a few days to heal, but I would definitely call the doctor just to check things out.
