hi, i'm pretty sure it's just a hemorrhoid but was curious if anyone else has had this. my mom (a RN) said bright blood isn't to worry about and so i guess this is what this is. ever since ds, baby no. two, I had one though i thought it was pretty much gone...no pain, itching, etc. But geez! every time I poop now, there is so much blood.
anyway, just wondering if anyone else had a similar experience or if there is something i should know?
I think that even if it's *just* a hemmorhoid (sp?) but there is a lot of red blood you should go see the doctor.
But ya know? Maybe a little more fiber and a little more water wouldn't hurt
(this is not medical advice, it's just my opinion. I recommend you see a doctor)
Yup, I'd go in, too. I have one that keeps hanging on
a year + after ds was born. If I have a crummy diet for a couple of days, then I get a couple spots of blood. ALways goes away when I start chugging water and eating apples, though.
I guess my question is...what's a lot? More than some spotting and I'd want to find out why. Maybe yours is just aggravated for some silly reason.
I also will have small amounts of blood from time to time (usually when I'm eating poorly). My doc said it was an anal fissure (small crack or tear)& not to worry, but I would get checked to see what is causing yours.
My doc. put me on 1 tblsp of flax seed oil a day..... and lets just say it has been smooth sailing since.LOL
