I have a strange problem. Sometimes I get my period and the blood comes out, but it doesn't seem to all come out on the pad. What I mean is very little comes out on the pad. Sometimes it looks like only a few dots is coming out. At first I think I'm not bleeding at all, and perhaps it's a false alarm, but then after I go to the bathroom and wipe, a large amount of blood comes off on the tissue. Sometimes I think all the blood just stays in my vagina and it holds it there... Is this normal? Could this be because I have had sex in the past and am currently having sex so my vaginal flaps (I don't know the medical term for this) have gotten bigger/expanded and are holding in the blood, sort of like a cradle, preventing it from coming out on the pad? Or is there a bigger, health related problem that I should be looking into? This doesn't happen every period I get, just every now and then.
