Well?: If you masturbate with inadequate lubrication or over-aggressively – that may be a cause for the blood you saw. If you masturbated after your period, there could have been some residual blood which was extruded. Or uterine spasm during orgasm could extrude blood. Have you been using harmful objects to masturbate?

A 45-year-old member asked:

What are alternative ways to relieve sexual desire besides masturbation?

The most obvious: The most obvious way to relieve sexual desire besides masturbation, is to have sex with a willing partner. Sometimes sexual desire can become compulsive though, relating more to obsessive anxiety than to genuine sexual desire. If you're wondering about your own situation, consulting with your family physician or a psychiatrist may help.

Have it checked: Gum bleeding could be caused by gum disease like gingivitis, taking blood thinners, a blood disorder with low clotting factors, hemophilia, and many others. Have your physician check it and see if you need to be tested.

Blood=tissue injury: The prime feature of self sex is your ability to control the intensity. Bleeding after any activity would suggest tissue injury.This injury may be superficial and heal by itself without any special effort. It is not considered a normal outcome.

Possible, but...: Vaginal bleeding is common at expected hymen tearing of initial sexual intercourse. So, for your first-time masturbation & by sequence of events, how you masturbated might tear hymen or injure vaginal lining leading to your concerned bleeding. At present, you may just watch, wait, & see how the bleeding may evolve & cease as long as not having unbearable discomfort or swelling. If not, see Doc...
