Hi Michael1300 and welcome to the Scarleteen message boards,
It's not unusual for someone to experience some bleeding after fingering sometimes, but if it's happening every time, that's a pretty good indication that something needs to change. However, that doesn't mean you need to stop that sexual activity or that your girlfriend necessarily needs to see a doctor.
Just to check, how many times are we talking about here?
Is the day after this sexual activity the only time your girlfriend experiences random bleeding (aside from her periods, if she gets them yet)? I'm asking just to see if this is related to the fingering or if it's a coincidence.
I'm also wondering how much bleeding we're talking about here. Is it a lot of blood, or just a little?
The genitals are really quite delicate and sensitive, so they can easily get irritated, or scratched by a fingernail, which could be the cause of the bleeding. One way to reduce the risk of irritation is to use a lubricant. Do you use a lubricant during fingering? If not, you can get one at the drugstore.
