This morning, i had the normal clear odorless (somewhat sticky?) discharge. But i think ive been wiping my vagina too much with toilet paper bcoz of the discharge and when i got home, i peed, wiped my vagina using toilet paper and found the discharge with some blood? Like its color pink? Could it be possible i got my vagina irritated from wiping it too much with toilet paper? I wore panty liners too see if im going to bleed hard, i noticed only like 2 spots. Then i changed it again, now it seems that it stopped already.

Im really scared, i could have messed up my vagina Sad

Pls help Sad

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Intermenstrual bleeding or midcycle bleeding could be due to breakthrough bleeding, hormonal derangements, thyroid hormone imbalances, ovulation bleeding, implantation bleeding, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, adenomyosis, endometrial polyps, infective causes, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Wait and watch for your next periods. Observe your periods/menstrual cycles for next 2-3 cycles and report any abnormality to your gynecologist/obstetrician. Go ahead with further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate would be started to help you regulate your periods (based on examination and investigation results). If you are sexually active and if infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
