Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

There is some bleeding expected when the hymen is broken. In some it bleeds like when you have a light period for a day. The other possibility is that there is a polyp or inflammation which has started bleeding.

If the bleed is due to hymen, it will stop immediately. Also it should not recur if you try stimulation about 2-3 days later. However, if you bleed every time you insert a finger then please consult a gynecologist. Hope this helps. Take care!
