I accidentally scratched the inside of my Vagina with my fingernail when masturbating... And it was bleeding a little bit. And when I went to the bathroom there was Very very light pink blood on my paper and this happened 2 days ago. I don t feel any pain but I haven t checked to see if anything happened.. But should I be worried? I feel no pain or irritation..

Hello dear
Understand your concern
Do not worry excessive. Fingernail cause scratching and cause bleeding as it affect the superficial capillary and venous plexus.
Injury should be rule out by vaginal examination after consulting the gynecologist.Doctor will give following advice:
Take warm sitz bath with added betadine 2-3 times/day.
Apply liquid base lotion that contain vitamin and minerals.
You can also apply neomycin ointment to prevent the infections.
Wear pure cotton loose inner wear. Avoid perfumed soap and cosmetics.
Avoid scratching during masturbation and use lubrication during masturbation.
Hope this may help you
