I am 18, lost my verginity years ago and am still having vaginal bleeding after having an orgasm, regardless of sex or masturbation. The blood is a bright red and the bleeding lasts for several hours. There is no penetration during the masurbation. I do have irregular periods but this is occurring every time. My obgyn told me that I have low levels of pro estrogen because of my weight but this has come up in the past year. [Confused]


Any help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks.

Does this only happen with orgasm? If you have partnered sex or masturbate, but don't orgasm, do you still have bleeding?

Have you asked your gyn about this?

No I haven't asked him about this... Embarrassing to talk about. It does only happen with orgasm.

Hi Mnnmouse. I understand that you'd feel embarrassed talking to your gynecologist about this, but it really is important that you talk to your doctor about any health concern you have. That's what they're there for, after all.

What I always try to do when I feel awkward about going to my doctor with a concern is that I remember that doctors really have seen and heard it all; I have a cousin who's a doctor and she made it clear to me that doctors really aren't going to be freaked out or get all awkward about anything you might ask. Chances are that they've heard your concern before, so there's no need to be embarrassed! [Smile]

I totally understand that you're still nervous. You can of course let your gyn know that you're nervous about talking to him; he should then do all he can to make it feel less awkward for you [Smile]

I'm sorry to hear that you won't be able to go in again until october, that does really suck. In the meantime what you could do would be to call your gyn's office and let them know what's going on and ask if they have any suggestions for what to do while you wait for that appointment. Do you think you'll be able to do that?

I really wish that I could know like right now so that it can be treated if it is something serious.

That's completely understandable, especially considering this has been going on for awhile. If you can't see your gyn until October, is it possible for you to visit a sexual/reproductive health clinic such as Planned Parenthood in the meantime? I don't know where you are, but often such clinics work on sliding scales, so you pay what you can afford insurance or not, and you'd likely be able to see someone much sooner than October.

If you need help finding a clinic near you, just let us know what general area you're in and we can have a look. [Smile]
