Hi , Good day. There are number of reasons for your symptoms. Pink blood indicates fresh bleeding. It could just be a local injury around your anal region. It could be haemorrhoids, fissues, etc. It could alos come from lower part of your large intestine. To differentiate these, you need to meet your GP who will then examine you and might do a rectal finger examination +/- Colonoscopy

It is from the virgina, i had test 2 weeks ago and the doctor said it showed no infection or anything else. And i have not had any sex after the doctor did the test for me .. I had my period finished about 10 days ago. Could this blood mark be something XXXXXXX or what?

Brief Answer: Stay Relaxed Detailed Answer: Hi, As i mentioned earlier, mostly these are caused by local injuries ( during wiping etc), haemorrhoids, fissures etc. But then your GP didnt find anything abnormal on examination. Please be relaxed. But if this recurs, i would urge you to seek epert medical opinion from a gastroenterologist
