10 days have passed after my period and I have a lot of clear watery discharge, sometimes with light blood. Last month I had also noticed light blood in discharge after my period, but it is the first time when my discharge is clear, watery and very abundant. I'm very wary so please tell me what would be the reason for that.
I mention that my menstrual cycle is usually normal (28 days) and it lasts 5-6 days.

Welcome to ehealthforum

Clear watery discharge from vagina is a normal phenemonon and part of self cleansing mechanism of the body.It can vary in amount during different phases of the cycle and increases during ovulation,pregnancy,stress etc.
If the discharge is associated with any odour,changes in colour and consistency then it is indicative of infection like fungal or bacterial infection.Spotting after periods can be due to birth control pill intake,pregnancy,hormonal imbalances etc.
If you notice any symptoms indicative of infection kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
