Menopause :: Bleeding Bright Red Blood After No Periods For 2 Years

Oct 21, 2014

I am 47 years old and haven't had a period for at least 2 years. However, i starting bleeding bright red blood about 3 days ago, and this has been quite heavy as i am normally only very light.It isn't like period blood. This has happened before in this 2 year period and it was bright red then too. i've been on warfarin since last december due to a pulmonary embolism in my lung. Is it necessary to see a doctor, i don't want to feel like i'm making a fuss.

Menopause :: 58 Years But Ovarian Pain And Bleeding?

I am 58 years old and very late going through menopause. I still have had a very light period about once every 10 months, so not the true 12 months to be considered through menopause.

A day or two ago I had some very light spotting. Thankfully wore a pantishield. Last night without warning or feeling, I had a burst of blood that filled the pantishield along with some pain by my right ovary. That was the end of the blood, just a very little light spotting today.

Menopause :: Very Heavy Bleeding Large Blood Clots

I have been bleeding now for past 4 weeks. The last week has seen me lose giant blood clots and I mean lots of them. In fact I've had to stay off work these last few days as I need to be near a loo. I feel a bit shaky but I put that down to the amount of blood I've lost. I'm really worried I'm going to need a hysterectomy. Has anyone else experienced this?

Bacterial Vaginosis :: Differentiating Between Periods Blood And Infection / Tear Bleeding

I was getting oral sex from my bf and he was also fingering me after I noticed my right Liberia minora lip was swollen. Do you know anything that could help the swollen go down?! I'm only 15 . It was my first time getting oral so I concluded that the swollen lip was bleeding but then after I showered I noticed it was coming from my vagina in the last two weeks I took Plan B three time and my dr stayed it might delay my period so, I'm currently not sure if have a tear in my vaginal walls bc he could have done it while fingering me or if I just got my period.

Abnormal Bright Orange Color Periods

My period was a week late and now I spotting like a bright orange color. It is like red orange. It isn't all the time though like only when I go to the restroom and wipe myself. I wear a pad just incase I start bleeding but nothing is on the pad. I don't know what is wrong with me I am scared. The one thing I want is a child, but I think that something is wrong with me and I won't be able to have one.

Bowel Disorder :: Bright Red Blood With BM

I'm new here but from what I've read I'm probably far from the first person to post about this. I'm just looking for other peoples advice/experience to help calm my nerves.

About me, I am male and 25 yo average weight/height.

For the past few months I've been having some bowel problems. Starting around October last year I began having on and off issues with some slight indigestion and small amounts of bright red blood when I had a BM. These issues would come and go. I had a small issue similar to this in 2014 and had a colonoscopy performed to check. The test didn't find anything out of the ordinary. In November of last year I had a Flexible Sigmoidoscopy performed due to the recent issues. This test came back saying that I had internal hemorrhoids but nothing else. I didn't do much to treat them and just sort of hoped they'd go away.

The mild issues continued until about late January/early February when I was hit with a week long bout of indigestion, excess gas etc. As these issues continued the bleeding ramped up until I was seeing bright red blood staining the toilet bowel each time I had a BM. It didn't seem like an immense amount of blood but it was enough to tint the water and toilet paper red. Due to these issues I went back to GI doctor around the second week of February. He did an examination with his hand and noted that I had internal hemmies and slight inflammation. He pointed this out as the most likely cause of the bleeding given the results of my previous tests. He recommended I start taking Konsyl fiber supplement and Preparation H suppositories.

After starting with the suppositories the indigestion and excess gas went away as well as the excess blood. My usual BM schedule resumed (1/day). Since then however I still see small streaks of what looks like bright red blood with each BM. Some days are not as bad as others but it seems like there is always a small amount of blood there. I've also had an intense itching sensation down there that would come and go every once in a while. Like I said before for the last 2 months I've been going at the same rate and the stool consistency is normal. I don't seem to have any excessive pain or weight loss.
My main question is for anyone who has had hemorrhoids. Can bleeding last this long? One thing I've noticed is that I seem to have fairly large/hard stools which I think may be causing trouble. I wouldn't call it constipation exactly just that the stools are large/dry and often require some light straining to expel. I also work a desk job and have a 2 hour daily driving commute. I've recently bought a seat cushion for my chair and car with hopes that it will help.

I'm sorry for the wall of text. I want to get past this but I am an extremely anxious person and this bleed issue is ruining me. I'm scheduled for a follow up with my GI in 2 weeks and am getting the sinking feeling that I'm in for another colonoscopy.

P.S. I've also had an abdomen CT scan in early 2015 due to a separate issue. No problems were found.

Menstruation :: Small Amount Of Bright Red Blood

I had unprotected sex December 5th & 6th, and according to a few period apps I'm about 2 days late - but Friday when my period would be expected I had some blood, enough to just wear one tampon a day and then Saturday and Sunday only a very small amount of bright red blood. I'm not sure if that sounds like spotting or my period, or if that's a sign of pregnancy? I'm not on birth control, a few days before my period was supposed to come I did start an antibiotic and a probiotic for strep throat.

Hemorrhoids :: Bright Red Blood Drops In My Stool

Firstly let me explain how it all started. It started a year ago in August 2014, when i found bright red blood drops in my stool. I got really worried. It happened for a couple of days and stopped. Then again after 6 months or so, in Jan2015, it again happened, the bright light drops of blood in stool. This time i straight away went to a gastro doc for a checkup. He recommended the colonoscopy exam. I did that and the report came up with internal hemorrhoids upto acceptable limit. He gave me some laxatives and told me to visit again after 6 months if problem persists. It agian happened after 6 months in June for a week or less. But now, it is again happening after every 1 month. I had it for a week in July, couple of days in August and now from a week or so, in this month too. For this month, i had blood stool for a couple of days and it stopped and now again today it came back, minor. Please let me know if this in any way normal. I fear sometimes that if it's something else than the hemorrhoids, that maybe the exam didn't catch it well or i need to get the exam from a second doc for reassurance, though i have had no other symptons as of yet.

Please advise on this. I feel quite stressed out when it happens. I have these bad thoughts too of cancer and start browsing the net for it.

I have no drinking/smoking and drug habits. I have started eating fruits daily in breakfast, though sometimes i can't avoid my urge to eat non-veg food. i also do regular weight lifting exercises. I am quite a gym addict. I read that lifting heavy weights also cause this. Please i don't want to give up my passion. Please advise.

Hemorrhoids :: Fresh And Bright Blood In Stools - Piles?

I am posting this because I suspect that I have piles. It all started with minor constipation and with in 2 days it got severe (when I say constipation I mean hardness to pass stool). However, I still go to the loo daily. Anyway, long story short, I have been having severe bleeding, pain and constipation for over a month now. Without having a break. I suspect its piles because it runs all along my dad's family. But I am starting to fear this as it hasn't gone away yet. Is this normal? The blood is fresh and bright. However the pain at the bottom is unbearable. I am already taking enough amount of insoluble fibre, drinking plenty of water, and always had gone to the gym on daily basis. Could anyone throw light on this scenario and tell me if this is normal? I am thinking about going to GP but my work doesn't provide me the chance to do so.
