Q: Why did i have vaginal bleeding after being fingered?

Well on Tuesday I got fingered by my boyfriend and he did it quiet roughly i didnt think anything was wrong because it felt good at the time. But when i got home i looked down and realized i had bright red blood in my underwear and quiet a bit. It is Friday now and i think the bleeding has stopped but it was a light brown spotting since then. whats going on?

Hi Kayla,

Your vaginal tissues can be very fragile to rough handling whether with a finger, penis or vibrator.  The tissues will actually get tiny tears which bleed.  The brown discharge is old blood finally clearing out.  The other option is that your cervix was traumatized by the rough handling.  It also can bleed with intercourse, especially if you have had recent or repeated vaginal infections.  If this continues to happen, you need to see your primary doctor for an exam and determination of the cause and proper treatment.

Good luck to you,
