Characteristics Of Blood Arising From A Tear In The Hymen?
Hi doctor, I have a question. What is the color of the blood when the hymen breaks? Because when my friend told me about her first intimate relationship with her husband, she said that it didn’t hurt but pink blood came out of her vagina. Then how to distinguish the red color of menstrual blood and a broken hymen? I hope the doctor can answer my question as soon as possible, thank you :))
From the information you convey, the color of menstrual blood in women can vary in spectrum, because it is also related to hormonal conditions, infections, mucus, or the woman's health condition. So that menstrual blood can vary from pink to black in color.
While the blood that arises from the tearing of the hymen, can be colored fresh blood, this occurs due to a tear in the membrane or torn tissue that is part of the vagina.
Differences can be compared especially when
1. The woman is menstruating or not. If she is menstruating and does not have sex, then it is menstrual blood.
2. When a woman is menstruating, and has sexual intercourse or masturbation, then menstrual blood and blood from the hymen can mix
3. If a woman is not menstruating, and does not have sex or sexual activity, then there will be no tearing of the hymen, except because of trauma to the vagina or trauma to the hymen
4. If a woman is not menstruating, and has sex or masturbates, there is a possibility that the hymen will tear, causing blood to come out and usually accompanied by pain.
Therefore, it will be difficult to distinguish by color. What can be done is to maintain and avoid the risk of sex, petting, or masturbation so as not to cause a tear in the hymen.
If you feel a complaint or your friend feels a complaint related to the hymen, then you can advise your friend to check with a gynecologist.
This is the information we can convey.
