  • yes i have the same problem you do, i am not sure how much blood u are talking about but mine is just a little bit when i wipe. Try not to freak out just ask your dr the next time u go what u should do to help. Good luck

  • It's worth a call to your OB. It could just be that your 'roids burst, but best to check.

  • It also depends on the kind of blood you're seeing. If it's bright red, it probably is a wound like a 'roid, but if the blood is darker, it could indicate a problem farther into the intestine... Your Dr. might ask for a sample or photo to double-check...

  • Its probably the applesauce mixed with your hemorrhoids making you poop and bleed. If it persists, definitely run it by your dr.

  • I'd talk to your OB about your concerns.

  • I'd call the OB, but I had the same issue at about 8 months (when the dreaded hemorrhoids struck)...
