It is probibly just like what you saw online. It is old blood. Our bodies are weird and can hold onto stuff for awhile so even if you finished your period a week ago you could still have that happen. Also you should know that your vagina has very thin skin much thinner then the rest of your body. It is like many layers of really thin silk. So it is really easy to tear and get tiny cuts. So when women say they are sore from sex it is literally because they have a bunch of tiny rips in the skin of their vagina. So keep using the condoms and get some lube. Also if you have this happen again perhaps you should go see a DR.
