24 yr female. After peeing, wiped and found bright red blood on the toilet paper 1x. Not visible in urine. Wiped again & nothing. No pain. Sex 5 days B4?

Blood: This would suggest that the bright red blood came from the vulva or vagina rather than the urinary tract. To be sure, a clean urinary specimen could be sent for a microscopic exam to make sure there are no red blood cells under the microscope. A gyn exam should be performed if blood appears again without your menstrual period. ...Read more

More info: The question is whether the blood is coming from the urinary tract (urethra) or from the vagina. If you're able to ensure a clean catch of the urine only and there is blood on the paper, it means that it is coming from the urinary tract which could indicate infection, inflammation, stone, or growth. Your physician can order the appropriate tests in order to make a diagnosis or refer you to a urologist ...Read more

Never had sex but was fingered (not 1st time) and bled. Was bright red and lasted 1-2 hrs. Didn't hurt during but after, esp. Peeing. Sore for a while

Never had sex but was fingered (not 1st time) and bled. Was bright red and lasted 1-2 hrs. Didn't hurt during but after, esp. Peeing. Sore for a while

Normal, no worries: And if you stick to fingers, you don't have to worry about an unwanted pregnancy or a sneaky STD like herpes, HPV, which can lead to cervical cancer. And don't forget the critters like crab lice, & trichomonas, & of course gonorrhea & chlamydia.If you choose to go past that point, I recommend on oral BCP (and a condom for the critters!). Good to test for Factor V Leiden to make sure no clot risk! ...Read more

On several different occasions when I've only pee'd, I've had bright red blood come from my rear? No bowel movement for hours prior to this occurrence

Hemorrhoids: The simple act of sitting on the toilet exerts pelvic pressure which may cause hemorrhoids to bleed. Because they are inside and not outside, you may not feel them nor know that they are in there. This is probably no big deal, but one good goal for you would be to eat a high fiber diet or use rectal suppositories. The more roughage and support you can put in there, the better your rectal health. ...Read more

Bled at 9am from fissure from rough edge on waste. 4 hours later more blood when I peed. Bright red blood, 1tbs. How much blood is too much to lose?

This is not too much: It always looks like more than it is when mixed with urine. You should take lots of tepid sitz baths, protect the fissure from acid urine with zinc oxide each time you use the toilet (and a tissue), eat lots of fiber and take stool softeners. Good luck! ...Read more
