This is embarassing for me to even post.

I was masturbating and when i got up there was a small amount of blood on the bed and my hand as well, when i stood up the lower part of my stomach (closest to my crotch) started cramping.

I know its not period it doesnt smell like period blood and i'm not due to have a period till next month.

the cramping is really bad and it hurts, the bleeding is really light though i have a liner on and have for about 20 minuets and theres not much on it.


I've never had anything like this happen before so its scaring me.

This happened to me last night. Don't be embarrassed. The cramps were tearing me apart inside out and I'm still spotting today.

You probably bumped up against your cervix, which can cause bleeding and cramps.

I don't think it's harmful; however it can be painful and extremely uncomfortable so its probably something you want to avoid.
Did it hurt while you were masturbating?

Weird, but I'm still pretty sure that's what it is. I've had the same thing where I didn't even realize something was wrong until I saw the blood.

Just be a little more careful, if this continues to happen then you may want to go in for a pelvic exam just to be sure that everything is ok.

Have you had unprotected sex lately?


Your cervix could be irritated due to an STD...

well yes, but only with my husband, cause we're ttc (okay let me rephrase so it doesnt sound like i'm cheating on him, I only have sex with my husband.)

And I know he's not cheating on me so he cant have an STD. (I know this cause well the only time he ever leaves the house is to go to work, and I trust him.)

Well, how long have you two been married? Sometimes STDs don't show any symptoms, generally in males, so they can carry it for longer without knowing... (Chamydia is known as the "Silent Disease." ) I've read a lot of cases about married couples in which one of them find out they have an STD and claim to have never cheated or whatever, so...

I think you should go to the doctor and get a Pap Smear... mainly because the same thing happened to me when I was masturbating, and it ended up being an STD...

okay i'm sorry i'm really concerned right now.

Its been 7 or 8 hours since this happened, and i'm still bleeding. Its light only noticable when i wipe and theres some light blood in my underwear.

I'm still cramping lightly, and i've been having hot flashes.

though the hot flashes could just be something else and not related at all.

Should i have stopped bleeding by now?

I would call the doc but i don't have insurance, the best i can do is make an appointment at planned parenthood(like i was gonna do in the first place) or look up a free clinic..or go to the ER and rack up more medical bills i'll never be able to pay. ><; I dont really know how to go about seeing a doctor without insurance..never had to do this stuff on my own before.

The bleeding is down to barely noticeable when i wipe, but the cramping has yet to ease. its not painful just uncomfortable.

planned parenthood or a free clinic is a good idea, as they'll be able to tell you the same thing... just make sure to go whether or not the bleeding stops b/c if it is an std, you want it treated asap so it doesn't lead to infertility...
