Our expert says:
On either side of the opening of a woman's vagina, there is a set of glands called the Bartholins glands. At the time that a female is sexually aroused, be it heavy petting, fingering,clitoral stimulation or even kissing etc, may cause these glands to release a clear to whitish fluid which lubricates the vaginal opening and vagina in order to 'prepare for penetration' of the vagina by the finger or penis etc. This is completely normal. A bit of blood noticed might certainly be trauma to the vaginal skin or hymen by the fingering. I think you need to reassure your partner. However, smelly or a change in colour of this discharge certainly would warrant a visit to your GP.
