Expert:  Pauline replied 8 years ago.

Fresh blood from the vagina may be from the vaginal walls after vigorous intercourse however it could also be from a polyp or erosion of the cervix. You will need to schedule an appointment with your gyn for an examination and then appropriate management. If your pap smear is overdue then this can be repeated at the same time.

I'm not sexually active.

can it just be me staining a week before my period.

yest i had some brown discharge on my underwear

my last perid was june 22nd with cramps till june 27th .

Expert:  Pauline replied 8 years ago.

If you have been having brown staining as well then this increases the possibility of this being inter menstrual bleeding which can be due to hormones, however it is still possible that you have a polyp so do get checked out even if you are not sexually active.

However it is also possible that this is the start of an early period and you may find that the bleeding becomes heavier over the next 24 hours.
