Bleed where?: Vaginal bleeding? See your gyn to make sure you don't have a utrerine or cervical polyp or uterine fibroid. Cramps with running can be after blood gets shunted from gut/gyn to muscles heart, kidneys. See gyn. Rectal bleeding? See md, maybe gi.

See a GI doc. Maybe hemorrhoids, or anal fissure, maybe something else. Needs evaluation.
