Rectal Bleeding: The most common cause of this is hemorrhoid, which are dilated small veins that occur after recurrent pressure from hard bowel movements or childbirth, for example. Anal fissures - little cuts in the anus - can also happen from the same process. If it increases in frequency/ duration/severity then you may need to check it out. Likely not a big deal, though. ...Read more

A scope that looks into the rectum will aid in the diagnosis and rule out serious causes. ...Read more

Rectal bleeding: Rectal bleeding immediately after anal intercourse is most likely from trauma whether fissure or injury to hemorrhoids. With that said, it's also possible that bleeding was coincidental such that anyone over 50yo requires colonoscopy for screening.

Other possibilities: While it is possible you bruised your prostate, it is also just as likely you injured your intestine even without bleeding/fever. If you are having abdominal pain yet, i implore you to seek medical evaluation. Let them know what happened - we've heard much more than what you did and the docs need that information to get the full picture and evaluate properly. The injury has potential to be serious. ...Read more
