I ate about a big beet and 2 hours later the toilet was red? I have only really been eating veg and fruit? It seemed to pass quickly? Normal?

Probably Normal: If it was a one time event to have the red color in the toilet, and it was soon after eating the beet, it could certainly be from the natural coloring in the beet. It is worth mentioning at your next regular check up but for a single time, it is unlikely to be anything but the coloring from the beet. Also, bright red is generally a sign of hemorrhoids that a more serious problem. ...Read more

I went to the restroom had a bowel movement and the toilet water was bloody should I be concerned ?

Yes: Blood in the stool is abnormal and must be checked out. Possibilities include hemorrhoids, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulosis, or a growth.

Probably beets: it is most likely from the beets you ate. Stop eating them for a week or two and make sure everything looks normal again. Stools can sometimes reflect what you ate and should be cause for alarm at this time. ...Read more

38 weeks pregnant dilated to 1 at last appt. I had a little piece of brown in the toilet with greenish mucus on the tp. Could this be my bloody show?

Maybe: Brown after wiping when 38 weeks pregnant can be spotting after an exam, if a woman just had a pelvic exam, or can be a little bloody show as the cervix starts to change. Having brown after an exam or a little bloody show doesn't necessarily mean going into labor soon however. Good luck. ...Read more

Many causes: The menstrual cycle is under numerous influences, both externally (e.g. Stress, weight changes, diet, etc...) and internally (e.g. Pituitary gland, ovaries, adrenal glands, etc...). Additionally, pathology like uterine fibroids and endometrial polyps can also intervene. Sounds like a thorough work-up is in order. Of course, a pregnancy is always a consideration. Get with your ob/gyn asap. ...Read more
