What causes hemrrhoids to bleed? Is it because of irritation from wiping or something else? Pregnant and wondering why it bleeds after a bowel movt?

Sure its hemorrhoid?: Bleeding per rectum may originate in the anal canal, the rectum, or further up the line. Frequent anal sources of bleeding include hemorrhoids & fissures, that may respond to modifying stool texture (fiber, softeners) and topical agents, or require further intervention. Similar bleeds can be seen with anal & rectal cancer, infections, ischemic colitis, diverticular bleeds, inflammatory bowel, etc. ...Read more

Blood : Blood in the stool, on the toilet paper, or in the toilet after a bowel movement are all reasons to see a doctor. You may be dealing with internal and/or external hemorrhoids, a rectal fissure (tear in the rectum). This seems more likely since this all started after a forced bowel movement. Depending on your history, the examination, and diagnostic testing results (i.e. Occult blood stool test), your doctor may want to order a test called a colonoscopy (procedure where a camera is used to visualize your colon). Lastly with bleeding comes anemia, your doctor should also screen you for this. All the best. ...Read more

Irritated anus: Good morning this is a common complaint. There are several possibilities. You may have an anal fissure or fistula that needs to be diagnosed at the colo-rectal clinic. You could have a food allergy. You could also have warts. It seems that given all of this it is time for a colonoscopy or at the very least an anoscopy. ...Read more

Is it normall to have a bowel movment every 2days?

Probably: Bowel movement regularity can vary from daily to every two or three days. Most people average at least daily but we are all different. I would encourage healthy diet and exercise with making sure you get appropriate fiber in your diet for colon health. If you experience any slowing down in your bowel movemente then start with gentle osmotic laxatives like MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) or stool softener colace. ...Read more
