Question: I'm having mild pain in my rectum/anal area. I'm also feeling slightly dizzy. I have blood on my tissue paper. Then, for about a week or two I won't see any blood. And then it occurs again.

Brief Answer:
Need urgent gastroenterologist or surgeon referral and workup of anemia

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible. First of all it's sad to know what you had been going through lately.

Based on the history you have shared, you need to have urgent blood tests including clotting profile and complete blood counts to rule out hemoglobin deficiency called anemia due to blood loss. As your symptoms relate to that. Also a per rectal examination and sigmoidoscopy may also be needed to locate the cause of bleeding. Transemic acid tablets and OTC analgesics like acetaminophen can be used but avoid any other pain killers. Ultrasound and stool analysis may also be needed.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Hope this has answered your question. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask. Regards

Hi. I had unprotected sex on the 19 of Feb. my period was due 22nd of that month. But I missed it. A week after the sex I felt like I was going to have fever . I thought its just PMS but I was delayed for 12 days. Finally I had it on the evening 6th of March. The next day I bled heavily and my period is so dark and have clots. the next day i thought my period stopped. after standing for a very long time i felt cramping in my abdomen and bled heavily again. and night time it stopped again. now my period is totally gone and i still feel very sleepy & lethargic. i have a weird feeling in my stomach , im bloated and gassy. my boobs doesnt hurt but it feels full. i have headache ...i dont understand what im feeling.. pls help. Thanks...
