Some bleeding from anal intercourse is possible because of micro-tears when your anus stretches. Especially if you are not well lubricated (using a personal lubricant, not natural lubrication) and aroused. Penetration under these circumstances will also be painful. The anus is not really meant to take something in.

It all depends how you masturbate and where you bleed from.

Is their any chance that you are causing the bleeding from the way you are masturbating (scratching)? Are you doing vaginal penetration and with what? Do you always masturbate close to your period and some left over blood is coming out? Or some early spotting is being forced out by your orgasm?

The most likely cause of this bleeding if the above reasons are not true is some form of infection or growth:

* Cervical dysplasia (Risk increases with multiple sexual partners, sex before age 18, childbirth before age 16, or a past history of STDs)
* Chlamydia (A bacterial infection)
* Gonorrhea (A sexually transmitted disease)
* Vaginitis or Cervicitis (Inflammation or swelling and infection of the vagina or cervix)
* Cervical polyps
* Trichomoniasis (A sexually transmitted disease)
* Vaginal yeast infection (Common symptoms include itching, burning, and an odorless, white, cheese-like discharge)
* Endometritis or adenomyosis (Inflammation of the endometrium (the innermost layer of the uterus)
* Uterine polyps (Women with uterine polyps frequently experience bleeding between periods (metrorrhagia), other symptoms includes vaginal bleeding after sex, spotting, menorrhagia)
* Fibroid tumors (Usually benign)

If you do not think that you are causing it yourself, it is probably better to see your health care provider. In some cases the doctors will not be able to find a reason and you will just have to live with it but it is better to be sure.

febin, A burning sensation is normally either that you are too dry and causing friction tears, you are tearing your hymen or your nails is scratching you.

It can also burn or bleed if you have an infection.

i only just have done this a few times, but when i masturbate using the shower head technique and point the stream of water at myself, i bleed afterwards, but when i do it with just fingers and nothing else, i dont. i dont think it'd be my orgasm pushing old blood out, but could that be an air embolism? because i bleed like a normal period afterwards.

I came across this post hoping to find answers, I am on the birth control implanon and ever since I got it my periods hardly ever come. I am wondering if maybe there is a buildup. Because everytime I simulate my clit I literally have a super period after. No more that'll 5 mins later. Not to mention my uterus and my bowels plus stomach hurts and I need some answers. Please someone with an answer emails me. Just thought I would add I only masturbate every once in a while like 2-3 times a month.
