  • OMG people do you have to keep saying shit to this poor woman about her child being sexually abused, for pete's sake you don't even know her or her friends and family or who she hangs out with so I think you are out of place to scare her lioke that. To the OP I am guessing it was from a hard stool but I would take her to the doctor and have them look and make sure it isn't something like an infection or anytrhing.

  • dont let people freak you out if it was just a couple blood spots then it was probably from a big poop. but if it was excessive bleeding like gushing out then call her doctor or you can call the er

  • If it were me, I'd call my insurance company's nurse's line and ask them about it. Are we talking about a little bit of blood? Like from raw skin? Or was it coming out of the inside of her butt in drops? A really bad diaper rash can cause some bleeding, or she could have an anal fissure or potentially a urinary tract or bowel infection. There are a lot of little nothings it could be, so don't worry too much, but I'd talk to a professional about it. Good luck!
