    @infinity888 I get medication-related constipation and have internal heamoroids and bleeding on and off. I have noticed with the Clexane, aspirin etc that I get a bit of a throbbing in my heamoroids as the blood thinning increases and I hope that it is something that simple for you. I hope you can get to your GP soon. I've had a few colonoscopies over the years, but they've never found anything too horrid.

    I take movicol for constipation as my heamoroid surgeon recommended it as a regular treatment - some others have senna in them and that can be addictive/bad. I usually hit movicol hard after EPU. If constipation is caused by medication you need to be very very careful increasing fibre as that can just create hard bulk. Maybe check with your pharmacist? I find licorice good too. I don't find Wazza's pear juice helps and the nurses have said some women just find it bloating. I also find hydralyte good to increase hydration and that helps with medication-induced constipation. Good luck hun.

    PS. DH once had a massive bleed after a BM - we packed his jocks with sanitary napkins and took him to ED. They examined him, he was home that night and follow up colonoscopy was all good. These things can just happen. In retrospect it was quite funny as he was quite intrigued by sanitary napkins!

    @infinity888 if the blood is red then that's better than dark blood. Dark blood or black poo indicates that the bleed is higher up in the bowel (black poo can also be caused by taking iron tablets). When the blood is red then the bleed is near the end of the bowel. This is more commonly fissures or hemorrhoids. I know a bit about this as my DH had bowel cancer. His was actually near the rectum so he did get red blood but please don't let this worry you! We were told that in 90% of cases these bleeds were not caused by cancer (poor DH really got the short straw). In any case getting symptoms saved his life. His cancer was detected and removed before it spread. If you have any questions please ask. I remember how worried I was when DH first told me about the bleeds.

    @infinity888 Good Luck with EPU tomorrow Luv!!!!

    The meds used to constipate me majorly!!! I used (& still do) Dulcolax drops to clear out the backlog as pear/prune juice etc does F.A. for me.

    Agree with the other Girls that it's prob related to the constipationxo

    Apologies to everyone I haven't replied to. I am away from home so operating off a tablet on H+ signal. It's taking an age to work so I am limiting my replies until I get home tomorrow.

    We had our double FET today of our two little PGD normals. Wazza upped my Valium and combined with the brandy I've slept the afternoon away. The embryologist said one embie was still a bit behind, but that was the 3-day PGD and I think that is common, so fingers crossed. It all feels quite surreal - I think the constant go of fresh transfers makes it feel more real, or maybe I'm just used to it... Hopefully that will make TWT easier!


    Sorry girls I'm also on Pregnyl so no stick in our immediate future (from me).
