Gynaecological issue, maybe

When I wake up with a full to bursting bladder, I find bright red blood on the loo roll after I've been to the toilet. But only when full to bursting.

I feel like any tests they could do would be very unpleasant, and I have no symptoms of being unwell. This has happened three times in about four weeks. Is it something that I could ignore for a while?

unpleasant, but necessary. it's not normal to bleed like that, so don't ignore and leave it.

You are well within your rights to ask for female doctor if that's what's worrying you
I always see women health professionals and always ask beforehand and they always accommodate me
Please see doc as soon as you can though

You should see a urogynaecologist. They will most likely do something called a cystoscope, where they insert a small camera into your bladder and have a look round, and maybe take a biopsy.
I have had it and it was totally fine
