  • i bleed very often when i poop and my son is a year old. a lot of it is that you get internal hemorrhoids when you are pushing during labor and when the poo comes down it scrapes them open. so its not at all uncommon. i think if you had ripped, you would know! my only suggestion is that next time that it happens, try blotting some toilet paper where your stitches are after ward. dont WIPE just BLOT and see if any blood comes back on that.
