post #21 of 34
I just don't see it. The whole photo has a pink tinge to it on my computer screen.

Perhaps our guest uses self-tanning products? I could see something like that maybe rubbing off and staining the seat...

blue/green staining can be caused by copper and chlorine reacting to one another it's Copper chloride



different cleaning agents can also cause staining, what are you using?


My grandpa is a plumber.
So you think her toilet seat might be covered in bacteria. I mean we all know what the possible sources could be for bacteria on the toilet seat are and we all sit there (at home, other places we hover. I hate to think this momma now needs to hover at home until she can get to the hardware store. )

: that it is a cleaning agent.

wow, i looked at that link and it really doesn't sound like what the OP described.

that pink bacteria stuff that grows in pet water bowls can easily be scrubbed away. and i'm having a hard time imagining that bacteria (which is kind of slimy) growing in the shape of a butt on a toilet seat that gets used many times a day.

just IMHO

how can you be sure it has nothing to do with pregnancy?

I hope I didn't offend the op. I was just thinking abou tmy own bathrooms, the many people that use them, my own squeamishness, etc.

It is funny, odd, and well, maybe not something we all want to happen to us.

OP, any updates? Is it still pink? Darker? Lighter? Have any other seats been affected?

no worries... i didn't think you were being offensive (but i'm not the OP!).

i was actually just thinking that maybe the moderator is confused, and didn't realize that this is a dry stain in the actual material of the toilet seat, in the shape of a butt, which appeared mysteriously after a pregnant woman was using the toilet all week, that cannot be gotten rid of.
not a ring or film in the toilet bowl or somewhere else on the toilet which could be cleaned with some bleach or other cleaner.

Here are the best pictures I can do. My bathroom doesn't have the best light and it's another cloudy rainy day here in Boston..

This is one of the weirdest things I guess I could ask..but after googling for a bit, and only coming up with one thread (here it is if you want to read it:
http://www.americanpregnancy.org/for...d.php?p=916428
I am still mystified.

OK so from the beginning, I have had a house guest all week, today was her last day with us. I woke up early to help my friend carry her bags down the 3 flights of stairs and see her off. Before I could, my DH jumped out of bed to help, ran to the bathroom and then helped us with the bags..ok.. so then I come up and go to the bathroom. Shortly later, DH goes into the bathroom and calls me in to ask if his eyes are ok. Our toilet seat has a PINK hue..yes pink. In the shape of a butt and thighs. I run and grab some cleaners, try and see if it was just lotion or something, I tried to scrub it with three different ones, and nothing.. So I casually text my friend that the toilet seat has turned pink (yeah all casual you know..) giving her the chance to solve the mystery, maybe tell me it's her self tanner or something.. Well, she just says she didn't notice anything.

So DH is convinced it was our house guest, we go on with our day, and it's still pinkish.. So I google it and come up with this thread??? So it could be me?
Have any of you ever heard of this? I am not on progesterone, but is is possible that my body started making more of it?? I have been on the same prenatals since 2 weeks before becoming pregnant, so I doubt it's the prenatals. I am totally baffled..

Help!! Should I call my OB?
The same thing just happened to me last week. I'm 22 weeks pregnant and my toilet seat (which is white painted wood) mysteriously turned a shade of blue/purple. In the perfect outline of a butt! And I'm having a boy. Weird, no?!

Another Case of the Mysterious Pink Toilet

Hello all,

The same thing happened to me and I am very nervous that something is wrong! I am 16 weeks pregnant.

A few nights ago I noticed that my sheets had a pink tint to them where I sleep. I didn't think anything of it- I thought that it might have always been there. It looked as though they had been washed with a red shirt in that particular location.

However, last night I noticed that my toilet seat had a pink tint to it as well! I used Fantastic to get the color off, but it appears to be stained. I was unable to find any information about this mysterious phenomenon. I called a late night question line and talked to a doctor about it. He had no idea what could have caused it. I am going to ask my regular doctor is well.

Let me know if you find anything out about this- it is SO WEIRD! It seems as though something is being secreted from my pores and discoloring things.

this really is an interesting thread!

yes, this is due to your prenatal vitamins/pills etc. every person has different reactions to this, some pregnant women does not have this happen, some does, like yourself.. sometimes pink, sometimes, light blue/purplish color. when a person man or woman take  vitamins, /  medications of some kind this imbalances the normal acidity of your body, you body will excrete the vitamins (or to much of) through your sweat glands. In this case, you can see  it when you seat down on your white toilet seat.. You want this stopped, take your prenatal vitamins, every other day, and drink lots of water, this way you can dilute the acidity of your system (body). have no fear, this is not toxic, it is just merely your body saying you are taking to much of something, and it's trying to sweat out the excess.

Sincerely,

1Jane

Yeah, I really hope this doesn't have anything to do with pregnancy. I'm a 28 year old man who lives by himself, and recently discovered the pink butt print on the toilet. I'm not taking any drugs, and I shower at least twice a day. I only wear jeans, and they're not new, so I doubt the color is coming from dye in my clothing or bedding. There might be a connection with an excess of vitamin, as I drank a bottle of vitamin water from the vending machine at work a couple days ago for the first time. The vitamin water was red. If this is the case, as a guy, I'm kind of wishing I would have gone with the blue now. At any rate, the damage is done, if I drink blue now, I'll just end up with a purple seat instead of pink. spitdrink.gif

Hello. That Is one issue I'm having myself. I was at the time experiencing an infection called Cellulitus and the fact that the seat on the toilet i am using had the color pink to it. While noticing this it was mentioned i had gotten it from using the toilet i'm seeing it now as a different approach. What was used was rubbing alcohol. And peroxide and bleach.
