Question: I started about a week ago with some bleeding on the toilet paper after a bowl movement, then it started more like a menstrual flow and now as soon as I sit down in the toilet even to just urinate blood drops come out with some blood clots I am very worry now

Brief Answer: need more clarification Detailed Answer: Hello, I have read your query. I need some more clarification here. Did you confirm the site of bleeding? - is it from the vaginal opening/anal opening/ or urethral or urinary opening? Please recheck again or examine yourself and find out where exactly you are bleeding from. The management is different for all these. You have also mentioned about blood drops with clots. We need to know the exact site of bleeding to go ahead with the treatment. Please let me know in detail about the concern. Awaiting your response. Regards,

Brief Answer: bleeding Hemorrhoid is more likely Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for the clarification. It is more likely to be an actively bleeding Hemorrhoid. You must use anti-hemorrhoidal ointments/creams or anal suppository that seal the bleeding vessels to stop further bleeding. I usually prescribe my patients with Anovate cream three times a day until 2 days after the bleeding stops. It contains phenylephrine. You could ask for such creams that are available over the counter or request your doctor for a prescription of the same. Permanent remedy is Hemorrhoidectomy or surgical removal of the same. Please discuss about these options with your primary care physician. Get well soon.

I have diarrhea but only blood and mucus come out . It looks to be about 2 or 3 oz each time. The blood is heavy and falls to the bottom of the toilet bowl. I have severe abdominal pain and cannot hold down water or food. When I take a sip of water about 10-15 min. later the abdominal pain becomes more severe and and I pass a lot of blood. I also have chills and I m dizzy. My ex-husband cancelled my health insurance so I m no longer covered otherwise I d head straight to the E.R. I ve never had hemorrhoids but that seems to be the consensus by family and friends because of the color of the blood. What else could it be? Thank you for your time.

Hi, Iv e been having off and on bright red rectal bleeding when going to the bathroom, sometimes when I have a bowel movement , sometimes just when I have gas while urinating. This happens when stool is soft, even with no straining or constipation . At times I also have a watery, tan discharge in between bathroom visits. There is no feces smell to the discharge; it smells like raw flesh. I had internal hemorrhoid banding done a year ago, and was having some bleeding before then, but this is more profuse.

Hi, I’m a 39 year old female and have been suffering from haemorrhoids for almost 2 years. I’m not getting a lot of bleeding, itching or discomfort (or not as much as I used to); however, over the last 6 months, I have been getting a thick, cloudy discharge and a dose of smelly fluid throughout the day occasionally (sometimes with some blood spots). I have tried Preparation H and Anusal treatments without much luck. I also had a colonoscopy done about a six months ago – apparently my colon looks great with no polyps, no problems, except the haemorrhoids (on the outside). Because of the discharge, my doctor recommended taking this to the next level and seeing a gastroenterologist/surgeon. However, I would much rather try a less invasive option, if there is one – besides my appointment has been scheduled for DEC 2012. Over the last few weeks I started taking magnesium and selenium pills, and I noticed that the occasional bleeding from haemorrhoids is gone, plus I have a much easier time going to the washroom. However, the discharge and fluid is still there.

I havent had a BM for almost 3 weeks now.. i have an anal fissure a sentinel pile, internal hemorrhoids and i need to have a sphincterectomy done. Iv been dealing woth this off and on for years now but its just gotten unbearable within the past 3 or 4u month. The urge to go is there but the stool is so large and impacted that i just cant stand the horrible pain and uts almost to the point were the pain is so bad tht it seems like even why i try to work past it my body wont let me. Iam terrified and in an indescribable amount of pain. If i have tried so many thing you wouldnt even believe the extent tht iv gone to help it and iv seen a gastro but he didnt help me. Is there anyway to get this out without pain? Or is there a way tht my gastro may b able to get it out of me mwithout putting me through that psin?
