Hi Doctor,
Can Clitoral orgasm cause spotting/bleeding? When my husband stimulate me thru clitoris masturbation,i achieve orgasm but i bleed a few hours after that. When we have sex (deep penetration) without orgasm, i will not bleed. What is causing the spotting/bleeding? Is it because of uterus contraction, or fibroid or infection?

Can orgasm harm fertility since i start spotting everytime i have orgasm? I read from somewhere that female orgasm is important to suck the sperm up to the uterus.

Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am really glad to help you out.

Female orgasm is not at all harmful and is not related to the vaginal bleeding. The following causes of the vaginal Bleeding need to be looked into.

This could be due to fluctuation in hormone levels, hypothyroidism & fibroid in the uterus or due to a genital infection & cervical polyps.

Please do consult a gynaecologist for the same as it is not possible to diagnose online without a physical examination and investigations.

I sincerely hope this helps. Take care.
