In brief: Various reasons

Vaginal bleeding between periods can be caused by many things including missing doses of your oral contraceptive pill, infections, miscarriage, hormonal change or stress, tumors, vaginal trauma or injury, medications such as "blood thinners, " or other medical problems such as thyroid dysfunction.
If this is the first episode, monitor it. If this is a persistent problem, see your physician.
