Why is there bleeding with mild itching in my vagina ?

Hi, I m a 27y/o woman, and I woke up this morning with vaginal bleeding , there s also been some mild itching. My normal menstrual cycle finished on 26th April and I haven t had intercourse since then. I ve had a cold and sinus infection (yellow mucous) since Friday afternoon so I ve been taking Panadol Cold & Flu , Lem-Sip and Otrivan. I also use Noriday contraception (taking it for roughly 6 months and it hasn t affected my cycle).

Hello
First,the cold has nothing to do with the vaginal bleeding.
Noriday however,has side effects like abnormal menstruation,spotting,itching,discoloured vaginal secretions,breast tenderness.
If you are spotting,its most likely a side effect.It shouldnt last for more than a day or two.If its more that that,first a pelvic exam in needed,ultrasound also.
If all normal,then this is due to the noriday.

On May 21, I had sex for the first time with my boyfriend. He used a condom and he asures me that nothing spilled, that it wasn t broken. I had just finished menstruating that day. I trust him, for sure. But lately I m having some cramps, like menstruation cramps but they don t hurt as much as it would when I am menstruating. I was just wondering if it is normal to feel these kind of cramps after protected sex. Have other women felt like this?

I am currently ending my period, so it s normal for me to have some diarrhea, but there has been a lot of bright red coloration to my stool, and the last time it was unusually bright and of a very strange texture that looked almost like the skin of a red pepper. I haven t eaten anything red that I can remember and this definitely isn t my menstrual blood. I have been noticing some occasional itchiness in that region, but no pain. I drank alcohol on Friday, so it may be related to that, but it s already Tuesday and it seems to only be getting worse. Should I call a doctor?
