Hello I know this is not a very nice post but I am very worried, I have blood in my poo when I go to the toilet, very loose as well. its definitely coming from my bottom not my vagina. it is red blood in my poo and when I wipe. could someone tell me if they have had this or no what it is? this is my first pregnancy and its worrying me sad

Do you have piles?

It happens to me a lot in pregnancy!

Is it sore when you wipe?

stephanie19926 Tue 17-Feb-15 13:13:59

I dont know :/

not sore no,

it was itchy the last couple days then this morning I really needed to go and i ended up going twice and both times was just blood.

if I wipe without going toilet there is no blood :/

stephanie19926 Tue 17-Feb-15 13:15:08

sorry ment to say poo and blood on both times not just blood

Get a mirror and have a look. It's possibly piles and you will see lumps round your bum hole (sorry can't think of another way to put it) Dab gently and see if blood comes away - should be bright red. I believe piles can be internal as well. Have you had an itchy bum?

Fissure or piles. I had both! sad

stephanie19926 Tue 17-Feb-15 13:18:05

yeah been itchy at night !! and when I dab there is no blood. just when I go toilet , its mushy with red blood lol sorry tmi

what should I do?

It could be a mild tear near your bottom hole. I have had this before ��
I saw my GP who wasn't concerned and said a small amount of blood can look like an awful lot in the toilet bowl.
Try not to worry and give your GP a call

Have you had a look?

stephanie19926 Tue 17-Feb-15 13:21:08

yeah nothing around outside maybe could be inside?

bobs123 Tue 17-Feb-15 13:21:20

Either squat over a mirror (magnified is better) or if you have a full length mirror lie down really close in front of it with your legs in the air!!!

bobs123 Tue 17-Feb-15 13:23:00

Possibly. would suggest in any case seeing the GP. He will want to know what colour it is.

stephanie19926 Tue 17-Feb-15 13:23:43

yep nothing on the outside :/

bobs123 Tue 17-Feb-15 13:27:47

So if external piles ruled out, see the GP. Could be something or nothing but always best to seek help/assurance when pg as everything can be worrying!


Number3cometome Tue 17-Feb-15 13:32:59

Mine are on the inside, outside its fine.

It's usually when I have been erm constipated for a few days that it's really bad!
Bright red blood, not lots but there when I wipe.

Not there if I don't pooh.

Sorry if that's a bit graphic.

Try not to worry, but see your GP as they can help.

stephanie19926 Tue 17-Feb-15 13:34:29

Thank you for your help, as long as it's nothing to do with the baby

do u think it could be pregnacare tablets I am taking ? they are vitamins but are red in colour ?

I had this for weeks 17-22. No external piles, but seemingly lots of blood every time I had a bowel movement (which wasn't very often). I only consulted Dr Google, which reassured me that it's common, so I didn't worry about it. Constipation comes with pregnancy and as long as the blood isn't from the vagina, the baby is fine (is what I read on the NHS website)

stephanie I know this may seem obvious but have you eaten beetroot recently? If so, the results the other end can look like blood. I freaked myself out completely once having forgotten that I had beetroot for dinner the day before.

scarednoob Tue 17-Feb-15 14:25:56

I've not had this but if it's been itchy too, it sounds v much like pregnancy piles. I'd pop to the dr, put your mind at rest, fingers crossed for you!

stephanie19926 Tue 17-Feb-15 15:56:38

no beat root but had beetroot crisps. only other things red i been eating is tomatoes & salsa and my vitamin tablets are red and thats it. lol

GoooRooo Tue 17-Feb-15 16:03:15

Might be the beetroot crisps according to this other mumsnet thread:

stephanie19926 Tue 17-Feb-15 16:19:29

thankyou smile I am waiting for doctor to ring me back. wouldn't it be purple tho ? lol

GoooRooo Tue 17-Feb-15 16:21:47

Definitely worth checking with the dr, but I hope it turns out to be the crisps smile
