Blood clots

03/18/2009

Question:

my boyfriend has been fingering for something around 2 months now.of late,i`ve been experiencing blood clots from my vagina whenever i get sexually excited(other than my menses).i don`t know what`s wrong.please help

Answer:

The concern is that you could have trauma or an abrasion to the vaginal walls that is causing bleeding. I can't explain why this is happening more when you are sexually excited except that the vaginal walls become more engorged with blood and this could lead to more bleeding. Bottom line, you need to be examined to make sure you haven't caused any type of injury to the walls of the vagina or if there is any other explanation.
