My boyfriend and i had sex this morning, it wasn't rough, but he stopped and said your bleeding. When i had checked it out, i was experiencing bright red vaginal discharge. I'm not on any birth control but i have never in the last five years of not using birth control had any scares, pregnancy symptoms, anything like that. I always have regular periods, usually 5-7 days. I have regular pap smears done. I had my period about two weeks ago and everything was normal. I don't have any cramping, no symptoms of pregnancy. I've also read that implantation bleeding is usually a brownish color, and mild cramping is experienced. I have no mild cramping, im not bloated.

Any time of answers as to why this is happening would be great.

No answer but..
Bright red blood means fresh blood and brown blood means old blood.
