Is this too long for my cut to still be bleeding?
I cut myself on my hip intentionally. It could have used stitches but I didn't think it was absolutely necessary, I thought it would be fine if I applied pressure. It's deep enough to see fat and all that, but it isn't too severe. I applied pressure for about 10 minutes, and when I took the paper towel off my hip the cut wasn't bleeding but after a few minutes it started to bleed again and so I put another paper towel over it and put my clothes over that to hold it up as I don't have any bandages. I just went to the bathroom so I removed the paper towel and the cut is still bleeding and looks like I just did it though I did it about two hours or so ago. So I guess that's how long it has been bleeding, is that too long? Does it need stitches if it won't stop? Should I just apply more pressure? By the time I'd get to the ER it might be too late for stitches though because I know getting stitches is time-sensitive and I'd have to take the bus, think it'd be worth it? It'd take like an hour on the bus. Is everyone sure?! It's really not horribly deep or wide.. = Anybody a doctor?

First of all, you sound like a cutter if you cut intentionally; which means that if you cut yourself regularly, this won't be seen as serious from you. However, it is. Cutting that deep could cause a lot of blood loss; you should get yourself to the ER immediately. Call a friend who has a car, or call a taxi: whatever will get you there quicker than a bus. Cutting is stupid. Find something else to ease your depression. Like writing, or meds!!!


You should wait 5 more minutes and if it keeps bleeding go to the ER.

You might need to go to the ER.
