Question: My daughter was having some cramps when she pooped a lot of red blood came out of her butt. It was the consistency of blood you have during a period, She had Nexpoanon put in her arm about 2 years and 4 months ago. She had her first period since the birth control was inplanted a few weeks ago, but it was a light period only lasting a couple of days. I don't know if that has any thing to do with what is going on. She said the bleeding has happened on and off since this summer. This is the first time I have heard about it. Should I take her to the Emergency room?

Brief Answer:
It could be due to piles ( hormonal imbalance).

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks For trusting hcm about her health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
Her per rectal bleeding could be due to bleeding piles or bleeding in piles due to hormonal imbalance caused by implanon.
She should take sitz bath and go to her treating doctor to get herself examined to rule rule out piles and take hemostatic drug to stop bleeding.
Hope Found Useful, Feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.

Hi Dr. Grief,

For last two days I had rectal bleeding. Amount of blood was not much, may be like a drop or two. I am not sure what's the reason. I lost lot of weight in past few months. I was thinking if that could be the reason. I just want to know if I should see the doctor immediately and what should I eat to make the healing process quicker.

Hello, I've been having rectal bleeding now and then for the past 3 years. I had a colonoscopy and everything turned out to be OK. Just some hemorroids. The bleeding is sometimes really intense and colors all the water in the toilet red. I have NO other symptoms, none at all. Just the casual bleeding. I am a very heavy drinker but just do it on weekends, during the week I don't touch a drop of alcohol.
I know I should go to a doctor, but I had already gone through a colonoscopy with favorable results. Is it possible that I just have some nasty case of hemorroids? Or can it be something more serious. The blood is bright red with no dark or tarry stools, just regular blood like when you cut yourself. I repeat, there are no other symptoms whatsoever. Thanks!!
