Hi Anon,

You should not be bleeding from your vagina unless you have a period. Is there a reason why you think this isn't a period? 

The only circumstances when you might bleed without a period is when it is your first time having sex, and sometimes you might spot bleed when you have a Urinary Tract Infection. These types of bleeding do not come with a 3-7 day pattern like a period does. 

Good luck,
