View Full Version : TMI....Not for the weak stomach SORRY
Okay I will get straight to the point.
Since having bub, 7wks ago. 2/3 of the time when I go to the toilet to do #2s my bumhole splits and the blood just drips out, heaps. The toilet bowl is actually red. It hurts really bad even afterwards.
Um, is this normal or is something really wrong?
Its abit emabarrassing aswell. I am really sorry if this is way too much info.
I go for my 6wk checkup tomorrow and just thought that I would ask on here before I embarrassed myself even worse.
Get it checked!
After having DS i had problems with #2 for along time, it go to the stage i wouldnt go til it bursted out lol
Did u have stitches/?
Did you have a tear or episiotomy???
It could be haemarroids or a fissure that opens up when you poop. It's actually really common, a lot of pressure went on down there during pregnancy and labour. Get it checked out as it's not fun to be in pain.
NOT normal. Definitely say something at your checkup - could be that you tore down there and perhaps the stitches didn't heal the wound properly. You might need to have more stitches.
Hope you feel better soon.
all i can say is oww!! hope they can help tomorrow.....
sorry for having no advice..
you need to get yourself checked out, its not normal to be bleeding lots 7wks later, you may have some damage there, definatly do mention it when you have your appt tomorrow
our little treasures
Definetly ask tomorrow!! However I had the same problem with #2 whenever I went, I did have 3rd degree tears and was stitched all around that area. This happened for months. I finally asked and they said it was normal just a fissure. I am not sure about heaps of blood as I bleed until 11weeks after bubs but I did bleed from that area just not sure how much!!
Try and get something to make your stools soft it helps!!
Nope I didn't have a tear or stitches or anything. Another ? is that I have already got my AF back and I am still BF. Is that right?
Fissure honey.... I had the same thing. The doctor can give you some cream for it. I also took a softener for it as well. I know the pain you're in, so hope it gets better for you soon!
It will heal, promise.
Yep its a fissure i had it after i had dd,but i had ALOT of problems with mine,i had to take a softener for 6 months before i could even go to the toilet without being in EXTREME pain.I hope your heals quickly(fingers crossed).
I had this same problem and silly me left it for about 10 weeks before seeing the dr and was in agony every time I had to do number 2's!
Like the other ladies have said, most probably a fissure (tear) down there.
My dr explained that it's because your number 2's are a bit too hard (really common after having a bub) and it causes the muscles down there to tense up, causing them to tear when you "go".
Drink lots of fruit juice and water, perhaps try some nulax (its a hard fruit pastey thing, safe for bf and isn't too bad taste-wise). And try to relax when you need to go - very difficult I know, when you're waiting for the stinging to start, but seriously, it helps.
Good luck! :fingerscrossed:
