Hi. I'm a 17 year old female and I was masterbating today and about an hour afterwards I went to the washroom and noticed a bit of blood. It wasn't a lot but the fact that I am 100% sure that I have no STD's or AIDS (I'm a virgin and was recently tested for aids because I was giving blood) and the fact that I'm still 2 weeks away from my period makes me a little scared that I might have torn something. I didn't do anything that I don't normally do and I was lubricated and I don't feel any pain, just a little discomfort. I know I didn't go deep enough to break my hymen so I don't know what I should do.
Thanks in advance, I hope you can help.

Sounds like you probably just scratched yourself a little. That can happen easily, and it's not a big deal.

Just as an anatomical note, though: the corona (or hymen), when it's still present, covers the opening of the vagina. But it's only a very thin membrane, and for most women it wears away on its own after time. Unless we're talking about forceful entry or an injury, the corona rarely breaks all at once. This article explains it more in depth: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/body/my_corona_the_anatomy_formerly_known_as_the_hymen_the_myths_that_surround_it
