  • when i was pregnant the prenatals made me really constipated and when i would poop it was really big and sometimes there would even be blood. I was scared to poop when i was pregnant. sorry if its TMI. my doc just said to intake more fiber and'll get better.

  • You probably ripped your rectum a bit. Totally normal and nothing to worry about... just a small tear caused by large & hard bowel movements. I had several of those during my pregnancy.

    You may want to think about getting a stool softener (NOT A LAXATIVE) such as Colace to help prevent them since they are more common during pregnancy.

  • If you have a mirror, check it out down there. You might have stretched it out a little bit, or gotten a hemeroid.

  • You sound constipated try eating more fiber and drink lots of water.
    You probably torn one of your tissues inside your anus try using Preperation-H that should help ease the discomfort and pain. GL

  • You probably either have a hemorrhoid on the inside or outside of your anus. Like Butterfly said, water, fiber, and prep-H
