Okay I have no shame....so I have a butt question but for mature eyes only lol

I had my son by c-sec 6 weeks ago and every time I poop my butt bleeds BAD. I take stool softeners...not helping. I dont think its hemoroids I think my doc or husband would have said something lol. What could this be? The warning label on the pills say if you have rectal bleeding it could be a serious condition..... Seriously my last dump was the size of a football!!! lol Okay so slight exageration, but big....

  • its either a phisher or a hemeroid. go to ur dr and get it checked because they can both b painful. and can cause serious damage

  • go to the doctor to be sure but it is probably an internal hemoriod i had that and it bleed so much when i would poop it would look like i filled the toilet with blood.

  • i agree its probably an internal hemorrhoid, i had one after i had my baby, it bled but not too badly. are you getting enough fiber? supplement your diet with metamucil or benefiber. metamucil makes fiber wafers, the apple ones are pretty good and work well. if it doesn't get better, i'd definitely get it checked out, it may need to be lanced or banded off. keep taking your stool softener, and try some prep h suppositories. hope you feel better, i know how much it sucks!!

  • Maybe an internal hemorrhoid (I have this too) or a fissure. Go get it checked, I know it's not fun. I put going to the specialist off until after my surgery but now I have to go.

  • Probably a fissure from the size of the stool, or internal hemorrhoid like the pp stated. Call your dr. and just ask them. They may recommend another stool softener or something.
