Bathroom Manners For Kids
My kid (her account) is under 16 and has rectal bleeding for less than a year but a while. It's only when she goes to the bathroom. Condition/cause?
Rectal bleeding: I would first consider softening the stools. Constipation and large, hard bowel movements can often be the cause of bleeding. There could also be other causes like hemmhoroids or fissures, among others. Appropriate use of fiber supplements to soften the stools can be helpful. If this doesn't work, i recommend consulting with your doctor. ...Read more

Persistent : Persistent bedwetting can be normal in children up to the age of 6 years. After that point, further evaluation is generally recommended to evaluate for a structural or neurologic cause. Otherwise, outside of a cause, it is important not to treat this as a punishable behavioral issue as that will tend to exacerbate the issue. Often times his doctor may recommend a trial of medication to help improve his bladder capacity or decrease urine production overnight. One additional strategy that has at times been successful is the use of a "potty pager" which will vibrate at the first sign of moisture, thus conditioning the child to awaken to the need to void. ...Read more

Your discomfort: Likely isnt coming from the cervix, but yes there is always pressure there, as in other parts of the uterus. It could be your bladder if its in the vagina, or the head can be low. Mention this to your doc and go in if you are urination more than 2x per night or having to go all day. Good luck. ...Read more
