implantation bleeding
I check my cervical mucus internally and am about 10 days post ovulation. Yesterday when I checked I had some bright red blood from the cervix and the day before just slightly pink stained but nothing that is coming out onto my panties. Could this be implantation bleeding or do you think maybe I've just nicked my cervix and have caused it to bleed. I keep my nails short and my cervix doesn't feel sensitive or sore. I've stopped checking as a result but I find it a good way to know when my fertile stage is and when my period is going to start and do it in conjunction with BBT charting.

It may well be an implantation bleed. Wait and see what happens in the next few days. If you do not have a period, you could check a pregnancy test.
