There could be several reasons why you notice streaks of vaginal blood between periods. Without having a full history, not knowing your age and medical status, and not being able to do a physical exam, one can only guess at a few possibilities:

*if you are on Birth Control pills, it might be break-through bleeding (due to a low dose pill)

*some women can spot around the time of ovulation

*cervical or vaginal cancer can cause bleeding

*infections can cause bleeding

*some women can spot after intercourse if they have a "friable" cervix

*women can bleed at the time of implantation when they become pregnant

*perimenopausal women with low hormone levels can have odd bleeding

If you are having recurrent (repeated) bleeding between your periods, you should discuss this with your doctor and be properly assessed.
