I wipe my anus real well after going toilet, sometimes see little specks of blood after, but now there's a little more blood with wiping, an I dying?

Minor anal bleeding: Dying?? Of course not! A little anal irritation with blood is very common and usually harmless. Perhaps you are wiping too hard -- go easy, or perhaps use moist towelettes or moisten toilet tissue with water. If bleeding continues, see a doctor -- maybe an anal fissure or hemorrhoids; these also are minor health problems. ...Read more

I've been have a dark brown/reddish discharge, kinda looks like dried blood since Tuesday, today is Friday. I only see it when I wipe and its itchy..

Since there is little information this response may not be accurate. You should see your provider and have the nature of this discharge clearly defined then have a full GI evaluation if needed. Do not ignore the symptom. ...Read more

I'm just find out after sex my female orgasm have blood on it. Once I wiped on tissue I see a blood with my orgasm. It is serious problem?

Hmmm: I wasn't about to try to answer your question. Since I am no dr ruth. However, if you were a virgin, then it can be expected. If not, then perhaps the sex was a little to rough for you. If the bleeding stops, then don't worry about it. If not, you need to see a gyn or go to an er asap to rule out a vaginal tear. I took the risk in answering your question since you must have been very anxious. ...Read more

I have been seeing blood when I when I wipe after urination. Urinalysis normal and culture neg. What can this be?

See below: The presence of blood on the tissue paper when wiping after urination usually indicative of either a urological (urethra or bladder) or gynecological (vagina or cervix) source. A normal urinalysis and negative urine culture would "tend" to rule out a urological source. Would recommend you first see a gynecologist for a good visual pelvic exam, STD screening if sexually active, and Pap smear. ...Read more
