2 Bumps

So yesterday... adult content

I went to the bathroom (#2) and I noticed a bit of blood when I wiped... I've had this happen before but usually just like spots that go away after one wipe, but this took 2 wipes to go away and wasn't just spots. Then, I only peed later and I still had blood when I wiped my butt. and at that point I noticed there was blood marks in my underwear, too. I'm going to call my doctor today but I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else? I've also had stomach pain and some light-headed-ness going along with it :/

  • it could be a number of minor things but it could be serious. Hemorids even small ones, constipation, straning can cause it too. other than that a dr. will have to tell ya.

  • You may not have worked but hemorrhoids are very likely or there are tiny blood vessels that can burst around that area just by wiping. I wouldn't really worry.

  • I agree with premiebabyma519 - it could be hemorrhoids - but I would put a call into your doctor. You don't state how far along you are so it's better to be safe than sorry.

  • This may be TMI but I hadn't even worked to go to the bathroom so I don't think it's hemorrhoids... I'm 6 months pregnant today.

  • I agree with everyone else.... I had the same thing.. its good your going to the doctor but it just sounds like hemorrhoids. You can get them from almost everything such as what toilet paper you use (i now use flushable baby wipes much easier on your butt and you feel cleaner :)) sitting on a hard cold surface too long, straining etc. Hope all goes well!!
