Noticing dark red discharge after urinating. What is it?

Hello, I am a 23 yr old married woman and within the past week I've noticed a dark red discharge after urinating. I do not know what this is. I originally thought it could be my ovulation time but its approaching 2 weeks now so I'm just not sure. There is no pain when I use the restroom it's only the discharge. Do you know what this could be?

Hi and thanks for the query,
Its critical to identify whether this is bleeding or something else. U urine test shall be very necessary. Coupled with a good clinical evaluation and history, it would critical to exclude local lesions, ovulation bleeding, chronic menstrual flow, or other conditions that could mimic blood flow like dyes, drinks or hematuria. I would be important to know if this is the first time you are experiencing this or not? and whether you took a drug you have never been taking before lately or not.
My advice is you consult your family physician.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
