hi so i'm 17 years old, i am not a virgin, but it has been just under a year since i've had ANY sexual contact with anybody; ive been checked for any STI's and i'm all clear.
however after i masturbate i find that i have a very light brown lubrication on my finger, this hasn't always happened and i'm concerned.
this only happens when i insert a finger and try to locate my g-spot. i have no lumps on my vagina wall and everything is normal and not out of place, i am on a birth control pill, could this be causing my problem? or am i just being too rough?
i am worried and don't wish to go to the doctors again as i find it very embarrassing and i am a very socially awkward person. any advice?
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The vagina and vulva are delicate, yet resilient structure made of skin, mucous membranes, muscle and so forth. The lining of the vagina is very similar to the tissue that lines the inside of your mouth. It's soft, squooshy, and it bleeds when it's cut or roughly rubbed.
Doing masturbation in a rough manner can lead to tears or injuries to vagina or cervix(if there is deep penetration). In future,do masturbation gently and at a comfortable pace . If anything hurts, stop and readjust till it's comfortable. Masturbation should be performed on your back, although you can try it sitting or standing once you've learned it on your back.
If symptoms persist then any fragile growth on the cervix or vagina like a polyp needs to be ruled out. A pelvic examination and ultrasound from a gynecologist then needs to be done.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
