I had a c-section 5 months ago and started working out last week. I noticed after urination I had a bloody mucus discharge but no odor or pain.

Best to get examined: Bloody mucus discharge is a fairly non-specific finding, with many possible sources. Blood can arise from within your uterus, the cervix, the walls of the vaginal, the hole where urine exits, etc. See your doctor. Your urine can be checked for a uti. The cervix can be examined to see if it's irritated, and swabs can be done to check for infection. Keep a menstrual calender, as well. Good luck! ...Read more

Bloated: You are 45 yo do you know when your mother or possibly sisters went through menopause? That's only one possibility. It always could be an infection.

Why am I had a mucus discharge coming from my anus?

Why am I had a mucus discharge coming from my anus?

Anal leakage: Processes that interrupt the integrity of the sphincter muscle or the hemorrhoid columns can produce anal leakage. For example, stretching of the sphincter muscle, a flareup of hemorrhoids, mucosal prolapse, or an abnormal connection called a fistula can all produce what would be termed anal leakage. Mucus is normally produced by the lining and increase production can be affected by medications or underlying disease processes. I suggest you see a surgeon for a anorectal examination. ...Read more
