Red blood in clear stringy discharge?

Hi... I am 17 and I last had sex on 23rd March this year. Since then I have had five normal, heavy periods. I finished my fith one on 9th August and it's been 8 days since I've finished and I noticed this morning there was a small amount of blood in my discharge. I am very worried because I don't know if this is implantation blood or what?.... I thought there is no way I could be pregnant if I've had five periods since unprotected sex but now I am worried... Please help asap!! I am really worried what this is....

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our help with your concern.

This is not implantation bleeding. You need not be concerned about pregnancy if you have not had unprotected intercourse since March and have had a normal period for the last five months.

Keep an eye on this. It may be nothing more than a little bleeding from the wall of your vagina. Would there be any cause for irritation to this area? Say from aggressive masturbation?

There hasn't been any irritation or anything and I haven't done anything with a guy since March... I was just worried about this as I do worry about everything!
