hiya..ok well recently me and my boyfriend have been ingaging in sexual activities. not in the actual act of sex tho. he is the first person that i have allowed my body to be expressed with. so he is the my first for every sexual activity. so reccently he penetrated my vagina..by fingering me. i dont know if thats the correct term but i hope someone understands what i mean. and i bleed the first couple of times. but the last time which was a couple of days or so before my period. i bleed alot. i even thot that it mite be my period. but it wasnt. and i was wondering what this bleeding was and if it actually could affect the arrival time of my period, by delaying it? thanks BadKitty

There isn't a heck of a lot that can delay your period ... And fingering or any other sort of sexual activity that doesn't get you pregnant isn't one of them. Worrying about whether your period will come on time or not could do it tho ... So don't! It'll come when it's good and ready
Does your boyfriend have long fingernails? Sometimes those can create scratches up there that bleed and hurt and are just no fun at all ... Why not use some latex gloves and lubrication? Or at the very least, ask him to cut his fingernails. It may not look like a lot and it might not feel too bad against another skin surface, like your hand, but the vagina is very sensitive ... Be careful
In addition to what Smurf said, keep in mind that unprotected manual sex does have an STD risk. You don't want to pick up or pass an STD, which makes latex gloves and lube a great idea. Bacteria and other nasties just love delicate vaginal tissue...and bacteria in a tiny cut (such as one caused by fingernails, rough cuticles, or calluses on the fingers) can quickly lead to a yeast infection or other STD/STI.
