I've noticed sometimes after some "self" love I am bleeding a little. Any Ideas why? This is not normal after sex with my bf?
BalconyBelle responded:
Are you female? If so, and your solo efforts are making you bleed, are you using your hands? Specifically, inserting your fingers into your vagina, using them to stimulate your clitoris, or another sensitive portion of your gentialia?

If you could be something as simple as your fingernails being too long. If they extend over your fingertips, you might be accidentally scraping yourself while masturbating--and depending on how cought up in the moment you are, you might not notice any pain, discomfort, or blood until later. Try trimming your nails, blunting them by filing, and see if that helps.

yes- using hands, sometimes toys, how ever in the beginning inserting my fingers... guess time to get a manicure. Thanks had not really considered my nails. Thanks
