Tmi question

So i just went to the bathroom and there was blood on my stool. I know that's not normal, I've never had it happen before. Could it be pregnancy related? Should I be worried? My stool has been extremely hard and I have a challenging time going.. Could it just be due to straining? Thanks

I think it was because of the straining.
It happens to me from time to time as well.

Could deff be due to straining, you could have hemorrhoids that are causing it.

If you are constipated then it could be from straining and tearing a little. Try taking a stool softner like colace at night or drinking some prune juice or pear juice.

Happens to me. Internal hemorrhoids. Take a stool softener and it'll help.

It could be you have a hemorrhoid or a tear from the constipation.

I had a similar thing happen and when I mentioned it to my doctor she said to start taking Citrucel everyday. I did for a couple days, but it mostly went away on its own.

Probably from straining, it can cause little tears in there which bleed.  As long as its not a lot of blood, i think you should be ok.  Try a stool softner.
