Slight bleeding in between periods
Good day

My period takes 7 days but it'll stop for a day or so in between, as in there'll be no menstrual discharge for the whole day(normally on day 4). It's heavy during the first 3 days then lighter in the last 3 days. The problem is for a couple of months now I experience some light mucuos-like blood days after my period. If my period starts on the 1st it'll end on the 7th but on the 13 after peeing, I'll find the bloody, mucous-like discharge when I wipe. Sometimes it's just normal white discharge but reddish like it's mixed with blood.

What can be the cause of that? Please enlighten me.

Thanks.

The discharge on the 13th is probably ovulation discharge.
