Mom Confessions Mom Confessions
Ok, so I know nobody here is a doctor or anything but, I have a 13yr old sister who is saying she is having rectal bleeding. It isn't that bad but she isn't sexually active, she isn't on her period and she hasn't had a bowel movement. Has anybody here had unexplained rectal bleeding? Or does anybody know what this could be? I've looked on Google and WebMD and nothing came up.

Thank you for correcting me. As I said, I wasn't sure how to spell it..

Quoting MaNdYbEaR2010:

It's not "chromes" like a pp said. It's "crohn's" and it sucks. It could be that, hemmorhoids, anal fissures... a number of things, relally. She should go see a dr.

Constipation and hard bowel movements can cause small tears around the butthole.  I believe they are called fissures but I'm not sure of the spelling.  It's better to see a DR to make sure.

Lol. I was thinking of beans for some reason. >_< and ok I will let her know to have my mom take her to the E.R if she is concerned.


Quoting Crimsonia:

Chances are... it's nothing serious... but she knows her body better than I do.... I would say... IF she is concerned, she should go in and get checked out... just for her own peace of mind.

BTW... I said coffee GROUNDS.... NOT... coffee beans... LOL

Quoting Anonymous:
She's telling me it is bright red, but also dark. Not like coffee beans. But like a nose bleed red. She's also telling me her stomach was hurting earlier.

Quoting Crimsonia:

Is it bright red bleeding or is it dark with the appearance of coffee grounds?

If it's bright red, chances are it's just a tear or an hemorrhoid, and likely nothing to worry about... if it's dark and looks like coffee grounds... she needs to go in to the ER immediately.

No big deal. If she decided to google it, it would help if she had the correct spelling. Not correcting you to be a bitch. :)

I agree

Quoting tori911:

 Could it be hemorrhoids? If she is constipated and straining during bowel movements, that could cause them.
