Some bleeding after using garlic vaginally

I noticed if I put garlic into my vagina for a whole day, I get some blood inside the vagina.

Is this normal? Can you please explain this to me? 

The garlic is an irritant, particularly if it is crushed. This irritation can cause the delicate cells of the cervix and vagina to become inflamed and bleed a little.

This bleeding is not dangerous.

To solve the bleeding problem if it bothers you, instead of crushing the clove of garlic, keep it whole.

Skip a day or two of the garlic to let the vaginal cells heal up, then try just the whole clove and see if the problem recurs.
