  • When I had the group B, all they did was take a q-tip and swipe my butt. no insertion, scraping. Are you sure it's blood and not feces? Once I got that far along in my pregnancy, the pressure made it hard for me to get clean.

    If it is blood, did they do a vaginal check? If so, and the blood is coming from there, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Brown blood means old blood, not fresh.

  • thats normal..i had that..if it turns red or gets heavier then you should be concerned.

  • I just had my strep B today, and it's just a swab, it wouldn't be causing you to bleed. I would get checked out by the doctor.

  • Amanda..then that's probably what's causing long as it isn't a lot of red, I wouldn't worry about it

  • The internal was what did it. I spotted brown for two days with both of the little ones each time.
