Do you bleed after you...

use the bathroom during pregnancy? I'm 16 weeks pregnant and I just need to know if this is normal. I just used the bathroom and noticed bleeding when I wiped my vaginal area and anal area as well. I tried wiping both seperately and it mostly came from my vaginal area. I've called my doctor and they said they'd call back but haven't heard anything yet. Should I be worried?

  • It's good that you called the doctor. Some light spotting I hear is normal during pregnancy. I never did spot during pregnancy, but some women do. Try not to panic as stress is not good in your condition.

  • Are you sure it isn't hemmrhoids? I have that issue and sometimes it is hard to tell where it comes from.

  • Could also be a UTI, that can irritate and cause bleeding too. Keep pestering your doc til you get an answer.

  • Thanks everyone, but everything is fine. The bleeding has stopped. I think it was caused from constipation and I was pushing too hard. That happens sometimes.
