i suggest that you go for an examination to see if the bleeding happened due to piles

in case everything comes back normal, then you dont need to worry

just continue taking high fiber foods, and drink plenty of water about 10-12 glasses per day.

you will have bleeding and pain all the time making it difficult to carry on normal life, sitting etc
