Slightly Bloody?

So, this morning I visited the bathroom, and when I wiped, it was bloody, like bright red, and the only way I can think to describe the way it looked was like when you get a small bloody nose and you blow your nose. (Sorry, that sounds gross..) It's definitely not my period, because I just finished with that about 9 days ago, and it's not bloody urine. If anyone has any thoughts or help, that would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Nlcollete,

Thanks for your question. It sounds like you may have had some sort of breakthrough bleeding/spotting. This can happen sometimes midcycle and is very common. Also, If you are sexually active sometimes sex can dislodge any blood that didn't come down with your period. It's not uncommon at all to spot or bleed a little midcycle... always keep an eye on it though, in case it persists and becomes heavy bleeding or if you have other symptoms with it (such as pain).

Best Wishes,
