I have been so constipated lately. Two time that I have had to push really hard, I have bled a small amount of bright red blood. It is not coming from my rectum, but from my vagina. I am currently 8 weeks pregnant. No cramping, no back ache. I don't understand what is going on. Please help.

  • I would start taking Colace and talk to your OB. If you are straining so hard that you are vaginally bleeding, there could be an issue.

  • Call your OB, same thing happened to me at 8wks, no cramping but blood. I had a subchroinic hemorrhage.

  • Instead of straining, go buy prune juice. Drink a medium size glass fast & I guarantee in a few hours, BAM!!!! Works like a dream for me. Also ask your OBGYN to prescribe you a Prenatal vitamin with a stool softener.

  • You could start taking fiber too... that helps and you can never have enough fiber.
