I was reading Mojave66’s staff Report (How do men get sexually transmitted diseases?) and I encountered a statement that didn’t make any sense to me.
“Female arousal includes a lubrication phase that squeezes water out of vaginal cells through vasodilation. The lubricant that forms is mostly water with a mix of squamous vaginal cells, cervical mucus and small amounts of blood.”
I do not understand where she got the information that tells her that there is blood, even just a little, in normal vaginal lubrication. I am not a GYN doctor (or any doctor, for that matter) but that just sounded weird to me. Does Mojave66 mean that there is blood on occasion (like when the vagina is torn due to trauma) or during all times when vaginal lubrication is produced.
Everything I’ve encountered says that any unexplained vaginal bleeding is a cause for concern.
I have just developed an interest in the female reproductive system, and I would appreciate it if someone could answer this for me. I looked through Mojave66’s sources and couldn’t find anything that supported her statement. Wikipedia even lists vaginal lubricant as made up of “water, pyridine, squalene, urea, acetic acid, lactic acid, complex alcohols and glycols, ketones, and aldehydes.” It conatina no mention of blood.
Thank you to anyone who answers this question. I know it might be a strange one.
