Found out why I am spotting!!! TMI

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay well here is the long and short of it. I am having to strain to poop...that is causing me to irriate my cervix and cause the pinkish mucus....so anyway the reason I figured it out was I was pooping and there it was again....then the two days later same thing...so I am feeling really glad that I know why....now I will take some fiber and hopefully be better soon!

make sure you pair that fiber with extra water, otherwise it doesn't help.

Also, elevate your feet... try to imitate the "squat" that is our natural (read: outdoors, pre-toilet) pooping position. I put my feet up on either the garbage can or our bathroom magazine rack, and it helps things move out with less straining than the feet-on-the-floor method.

: I have been having trouble with hemorrhoids (leftover from pushing DD out) and I have started squatting in the last few days and it has done wonders!! I put the stepstool in front of the toilet and literally step up on it and then squat to make sure I am getting in the right position... your legs have to be pretty close in, or at least for me. Try it, it will help!!

Glad you figured out what's going on with your spotting! Makes me wonder if mine could be related to the same thing...
