I'm quite sure that it's vaginal bleeding after bowel movement?

Occult bleeding: Since you can't see what is going on in this part of your anatomy, you should not make assumptions, which are dangerous. You need an exam.

Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

Maybe: Btb is more likely with extended cycle. But other things can causes btb, especially bleeding after sex, like cervical polyps, fibroids or stis. If it continues, see your dr.

Irregular periods: Irregular vaginal bleeding is a common complaint. When you push to have a bowel movement then sometimes blood in the vagina comes out. It is important to verify that the blod is not from the anus or rectum when you see your doctor.

One month since mirena (levonorgestrel) insertion and the only time I have vaginal bleeding is after a bowel movement. I also have bloody mucous. Any thoughts?

Unsure: Where is the blood coming from? You should not be having blood coming from the rectum. Bloody mucous from the vagina is not that unusual after a mirena (levonorgestrel). See your provider and get this checked out!

Vaginal bleeding (not rectal) after bowel movement, why could this be? Had cervical polyp removed 3 years ago if this is relevant?

Vaginal bleeding (not rectal) after bowel movement, why could this be? Had cervical polyp removed 3 years ago if this is relevant?

Should get an exam: A cervical polyp could bleed after a bowel movement, so that's one possibility. Cervical polyps are common and they often recur. I'd recommend getting an exam and if there's no polyp visible, and no other concerns (infection, inflammation, or abnormal Pap smear) then I'd recommend a pelvic ultrasound to look deeper.

Vaginal Bleeding: If you notice bloody bowel movements or vaginal bleeding with bowel movement then the first step should always be a visit to your physician to determine the exact cause of your problem. Because this is a symptom that can mean a number of different conditions, only your doctor can rule out any serious condition like cancer that may require treatment.

I sometimes have vaginal bleeding after I have had a bowel movement that is especially hard to get out. I am post menopausal?

Need GYN check: Could be due to severe constipation & polyethylene glycol (generic miralax) in sufficient daily dose to acheive a daily soft bowel movement is recommended. Bleeding should be checked out by a pelvic exam & possibly a d&c. Consult with your gynecologist.

I miscarried at 10 weeks 1 month ago. I bled for 1.5 weeks & have not had a period. The last 2 days I have had vaginal bleeding with bowel movements.

I miscarried at 10 weeks 1 month ago. I bled for 1.5 weeks & have not had a period. The last 2 days I have had vaginal bleeding with bowel movements.

5 weeks: The minimum of a regular menstrual period after ending a pregnancy is about 5 weeks. Three weeks seems to be the earliest a woman ovulates after ending a pregnancy, plus 2 weeks for the "secretory" phase, the second half of the menstrual cycle. If irregular, anovulatory bleeding (a woman may not ovulate properly ending a pregnancy) occurs for much longer (8 - 10 weeks) it needs to be investigated

Bleeding source?: The bleeding source may be vaginal when straining at the stool, but is more likely rectal bleeding from hemorrhoids. Have your OB MD check you out (examine you) as you still need pregnancy care.

Can you have endometriosis 15 yrs. After a hysterectomy? Endometriosis up to my mid twenties. Had partial, then full hysterectomy in mid twenties. Have vaginal bleeding when I have some bowel movements for the last two months.

Can you have endometriosis 15 yrs. After a hysterectomy? Endometriosis up to my mid twenties. Had partial, then full hysterectomy in mid twenties. Have vaginal bleeding when I have some bowel movements for the last two months.

Yes,: Yes, you can still have endometriosis after a hysterectomy. There could be residual endometrial tissue which continues to grow, or there can be endometrial tissue outside of the uterus and ovaries. If you are starting to bleed after15 years with no bleeding, I recommend that you see your gynecologist, to confirm the source of the bleeding.

At times I have vaginal bleeding when I have a bowel movement.2 yrs ago urethral bladder sling surgery. Could this be related or something else?

Fistula?: This needs professional evaluation. It could be a rectovaginal fistula, i.e. an abnormal connection between the vagina and rectum. This is more likely if the vaginal blood smells or looks like it might be mixed with feces. See either your personal physician or, perhaps best, the surgeon who treated you 2 years ago. Good luck!

I just had hernia surgery a week ago and had to strain to have a bowel movement and now have vaginal bleeding could it be from the surgery?

I just had hernia surgery a week ago and had to strain to have a bowel movement and now have vaginal bleeding could it be from the surgery?

Unlikely: Straining to have a BM might cause pain at site of hernia repair but I can't see the connection to vaginal bleeding unless you have GYN problems unrelated to the surgery. If bleeding persists see your OB/GYN.

On birth control pill. Light spotting between periods. Yesterday had bowel movement and had vaginal bleeding when I wiped, but no residual/recurrent.

On birth control pill. Light spotting between periods. Yesterday had bowel movement and had vaginal bleeding when I wiped, but no residual/recurrent.

Bowel movement: Spotting in between period can occur with pills. If there is blood when a woman wipes after bowel movement it can be from, 1- urine, 2- vagina and the 3rd can sometimes be seen when your bowel movement is hard and it can abrade the wall of the mucosa of your rectum and anus as it passed down. Foods you ingested may also cause blood in your stool and plus medical conditions. If persists see Dr.
