Bleeding from the backside

    Hi need some advice please. This is completely genuine so please can someone take this seriously.

    Basically over the last few months I've noticed small amounts of blood after taking a dump. It has worried me but I really don't want a physical examination. It happens about 3-5 times a week. I generally have pains in my lower abdomen where it's tender to touch on most days.

    Now I'm not completely sure whether this is definitely connected but three days ago I visited the ladies and I was horrified to see that I'd literally crapped out blood, to put a measure on it I'd say it was enough to cover at least half the bottom of the toilet. It was darkish red but not too dark- kinda like when you give blood for a blood test. Ok so later I when I went again, same thing happened except not as much. The rest of the day passed relatively normal, except me scared to death of sleeping and not waking up and being scared evey time I went to the toilet. Next day though the same thing happened and also I passed clear liquid.

    Since then I've been ok except having diarrhea and a bloated and sore stomach. I'm definitely not on my period and having eaten anything red in colour/ changed eating habits recently. I jjust wanted to know if anyone has experienced the same and if it will go away. Also if I was to go to the doc will I have to have a physical examination/ have something stuck up my ******** because I really really don't want that. Does anyone know if it could be checked with blood tests or something else?

    This is completely genuine, I'm going back to uni and my doctor is there so won't be able to be seen until the end of the week but if anyone could help that'd really be appreciated right now. As I haven't seen blood the last day I feel bit more relaxed about ignoring it but I need some peace of mind. I'd happily see a doc if it wasn't for me stripping and being prodded putting me off. If anyone might know whats going on I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance

    I can't give advice on what it is but surely stripping at the doctors would be better than potential death???

    I've had my testicles examined by a group of students and believe me, it was worth it in the end to cure me.

    Please get checked out.

    They might check to see if you have anal fissures I guess... I don't know. You would need to provide a stool sample though

    Bleeding from the rectum is very common, so you shouldn't feel ashamed about going to the GP about it, they will have seen it many, many times. It's probably an anal fissure, which isn't serious but can end up being painful if not dealt with properly.

    If I'm going to be blunt, you will see a doctor whether you like it or not, because you know it's what you must do, and the earlier you do it, the smaller the chance of further complications.

    Definitely get to a doctor; rather have to have them check it once then be down there all the time meddling if something went very wrong suddenly.

    Aww i understand your embarrassment over the issue completely because i had the same symptoms 5 years ago (the clear liquid i'm assuming is muscus?). And the huge amounts of blood can seem terrifying but it's not as bad as you imagine, just seems like a ridiculous ammount because it something your not used to seeing. I put off going to the doctor for months because i was too embarrassed but seriously do nooot do that! Turned out to not be embarrassing in the slightest, they see it every day!

    They will most likely check you out yeah but it's worth it to be better. Don't worry about it, they make it as easy as possible trust me.

    I've just been investigated for this. You need to get it seen to. It could be very serious.

    I had blood tests, stool test, and a colonoscopy.

    You get used to having stuff up your arse quite quickly. It's not that embarrassing.

    Just bite the bullet and see the doctor. No one on the internet can diagnose you so you really have no choice. It's probably something pretty harmless but it's worth getting it checked out. They've seen it all before, really.

    Oh and you don't need to put it off until you get back to uni. You can just go into a surgery locally and sign up, even as a temporary patient, I think. If you actually have a health problem they won't turn you away, and if they can't see you they will direct you to someone who can. If you get lots of bleeding again you should probably go to A&E.

    I would suggest you book an urgent appointment with your GP, if they are fully booked consider going to A&E if it continues.
    Expect blood tests and maybe a finger up your backside and maybe further investigation.

    Stop taking any tablets/medication, don't drink alcohol too.

    Get seen to-don't leave it.

    I would put my money on ulcerative colitis. NB: this is not a diagnosis.

    Basically, you need to go see your doctor (surprise surprise!), where they will take a good history, examine your tummy and will almost certainly do a rectal examination and some blood tests. Easy for me to say, but it is only a few minutes of minor discomfort.
