Brief Answer:
Blood blister

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for the question. Here are my thoughts:

This is most likely related to a very small amount of surface trauma to a superficial vaginal mucosa cappillary. I liken it to a "blood blister" that you might get on your skin. This then forms a small clot at the surface and eventually falls off. It is a decent explanation and does NOT sound like any form of STD.

What do you think? Do you have additional questions?
