I recently began masturbating. Tonight I inserted my finger and there was a bit of blood. There's none leaking out and it doesn't hurt. What do I do? Or what does it mean?

I recently began masturbating. Tonight I inserted my finger and there was a bit of blood. There's none leaking out and it doesn't hurt. What do I do? Or what does it mean?

In general, that's ok: First, I would recommend keeping a menstrual diary to keep track of your cycles. When that episode occurred, were you about to start your period? Sometimes, slight bloody discharge may be in the vagina before your period actually starts. Second, remember that it is possible to have small abrasions or nicks if your fingernails are long or with very aggressive stimulation. I suspect all is ok. ...Read more

I am 39 weeks and having watery discharge every so often that soaks my underwear. It also has a little bit of white thick discharge in with it. Is this normal? Or could it be my water leaking?

Water Leak vs. Urine: Hello Nicole,
There are several possible reasons as to why you may be experiencing an intermittent watery discharge. While this MAY be due to a leak, from your 'bag of water', it may also be due to your bladder being compressed (by your Uterus). It is very important to distinguish between the two possibilities, because prolonged leaking of your bag of waters is dangerous. Please contact your Dr. ...Read more

Hi I have milk leaking from my breasts, I just took a test its show neg. And my both sides of nipples feels a bit pain. And I gain weight, is it mean I am pregnant?

Please double check: Your pregnancy test with a healthcare provider. If you are lactating (and you are not nursing an infant) and have weight gain, chances are pretty good that you are pregnant. And if you are not, then the healthcare provider will need to check you for other conditions that can give you lactation. Good luck and thank you for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

As if you are ruptured then you need Pitocin (oxytocin) to get you into labor and if u are beta strep + u need IV antibiotics started right away, once your water has broke you need to be moving toward getting baby delivered as you do not want to get an infection! ...Read more
