Why when I poop I wipe my self I see light pink blood?

See a doctor: Blood in the stool is not normal. It suggests there may be a bleed somewhere in the GI tract but this could be anywhere from your mouth with blood you are swallowing, to your stomach due to an ulcer, to an internal or external hemorrhoid. A physician will be able to examine your stool, and take a complete history to determine which tests and necessary to determine the cause of bleeding. Read more

Probably hemorhoids: But see the g.i. dr. To be sure, depends on age, if after age 40, cancer more likely but usually not espec.

What happens when you wipe and the tissue is pink but no blood in stool?

What happens when you wipe and the tissue is pink but no blood in stool?

Monitor closely: I would recommend that you advise your primary physician of the situation. Since the tissue is pink it may represent a small amount of blood on the paper. This could come from a small tear or hemorrhoid or fissure. Monitor and keep your md informed. If needed he/she will refer you to the appropriate specialist if needed. Read more

BRBPR: This may just be just hemorrhoidal but bleeding from rectum (brbpr) may also indicate anal fissures, proctitis (due to infection, inflammatory bowel disease, radiation therapy, stercoral ulcers, rectal prolapse, trauma, etc.) or a bleeding source further upstream. Considerations: age, risk factors, current medication (aspirin, nsaids, anticoagulants can cause bleeding), trauma/anal penetration... Read more

Possibly: If you haven't been using birth control it's possible you are pregnant. But there are a number of other reasons you might have some spotting or blood on wiping. Some of these include infection, hormonal problems, or even hemorrhoids. Check a pregnancy test if your period is late, or if you're worried. And see a gynecologist if you are pregnant, or irregular bleeding continues. Read more

6 weeks preg, very constipated had some bowel movement and when wiped little bit of pink blood from vagina than none after when I go urinate, normal?

Might be UTI: If the blood is coming only when you urinate it might be associated with a UTI (hemorrhagic cystitis). This should be considered especially if you also have burning, urgency, frequency upon urination. If the bleeding comes any time then it could be related to a threatened abortion. In your situation in ay of those cases you should be seen ASAP to determine what is going on and get treated as needed Read more

I'm almost 16 and every time I wipe after pooping, there is little red on the paper. Why does this happen?

'Little'= irritation: If it is just small streaks on tp when wipe, is usually due to irritation or hemorrhoids. Try using baby wipes for couple of days and see if improves / resolves. If not, will need to have your dr. Look at it to be sure nothing else is going on or does not need medication to help resolve. Read more

Might be hemorrhoids: You might have hemorrhoids causing these symptoms, but there are other considerations. Hemorrhoids can bleed and either diarrhea, straining, constipation, hard stools can set it off. However since it's persisting you should probably be seen by your physician for an evaluation. Good luck. Read more

I've been told that people need 3-5 wipes. After pooping I often have to wipe 20+ times. Is something wrong with me or are others just unclean?

I've been told that people need 3-5 wipes. After pooping I often have to wipe 20+ times. Is something wrong with me or are others just unclean?

Combination issue: Please ignore the 3 wipe story you heard. Everyone is different. Do what is needed to be clean. If the wiping is usually excessive, like the 20+ times, maybe you are being excessive in trying to be clean beyond what taking a shower and washing there would do. We can obsess about anything in response to stress. Don't irritate the tissue by wiping too much. Peace and good health. Read more
