Thanks for all these additional information.
I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,strenuous yoga can be a possible cause of your spotting.

The spotting associated with exercise could be the result of hormones changes also.

So I would recommend to take proper rest for few days and avoid any physical activity for a while.

Take OTC Motrin.

Do cool water sitz bath with betadine solution.

Also hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

If your spotting and pain are getting worse or recurrent then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Prevent constipation and avoid straining during bowel movement.
