Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can I help you?
User :   Hi there, what is ur specialty?
Doctor :  
I am expert in Adult and Sexual medicine
User :   okay, great....
User :   okay, here is my queion
User :   threw up a few times today (long story, the reason why could have been prevented so it's not something that you need to factor in), but at the very end of the last one (maybe about 5x) there was a very tiny amount of blood. Nothing major, as I said very tiny. That was about 22 hrs ago now - to be honest, it was during sexual intercourse, only mentioning that to you in embarassment as I wasn't sick prior and I maybe only throw up a couple times a year when I get sick and it's normal.
User :   I mean (yesterday I threw up not today)
User :   euhm, hello?
Doctor :   yes

Doctor :  
reading what you have typed
Doctor :   ok what is your question now

User :   well, the fact that I saw that tiny bit of blood
Doctor :  
Ok
Doctor :  
Usually if the vomiting was self induced or if the vomitus is of multiple times ( more than 3 times) there is possibility of mucosal tear in the lower end of the food pipe
Doctor :  
The tear in the mucus cause the blood to apper in the vomitus
Doctor :  
so now the amount of blood is the criteria
Doctor :  
whether to evaluate further or not
Doctor :  
The pain after vomitus is also another criteria
User :   yah it was a very small amount

User :   no it is not
User :   I talked to a Dr. on here yesterday, the Dr. said that I shouldn't worry because since it was self-induced and only happened one time, that it would just be a leaked blood vessel and that only if it happened again should i be concerned. and to drink warm water.
