  • yes you could have hemorrhoids but you should see you doctor. It could be something minor but it doesn't hurt to find out. Better to be safe then sorry.

  • Could be a hemorrhoid. If so, it will go away. Are you having any pain?
    It might be worth seeing your doc just to be sure. Bright red blood isn't usually as concerning as old, dried blood (tarry, coffee-ground stools).

  • Hemorrhoids. Since it's bright it means it is fresh. Try and ice your crack and your perineum (the spot between your vaginal area and anal area). You could have a tear too. Either way icing it will take down any swelling and pain. And honestly, after having a baby icing yourself is a rather nice feeling. I had gotten a few disposable ice packs from the hospital that actually fit like a maxi pad would but they are long enough to cover the entire area. Very nice on swollen parts.
