Ugh, leaking toilet. What do I do?!

I've just noticed our toilet is leaking across our bathroom floor. I dried the floor, left it and no water. Flushed the toilet and it leaked again, from the back right next to the floor, where the sealant meets the floor tiles.

I can easily reseal it but I'm suspecting the pipes inside shouldn't be leaking?? Do I need to have the whole toilet taken out for this to be fixed?

It's probably leaking from where the outflow pipe fits into the back of the toilet. I suspect a plumber might be needed to refit it.

It's not coming from the outflow pipe, definitely from under the sealant as I held tissue under the outflow pipe and it stayed dry.

Thanks though, I think you're right that it'll need a plumber. I'm fairly handy and happy to fix a cistern but this is beyond me!

I had that. Plumber came out and the internal workings of the cistern needed changing. Only took an hour or so.
