Help, big time TMI! MamaTiffy Due August 2 (girl); 2 kids; Sunnyvale, CA, United States 8740 posts

Ok so... I haven't been pooping properly the past couple of weeks. I think I've gone 2-3 times in that time frame. Last night I felt like I needed to go, I pushed for a bit felt something come out and looked... and it was not poop. It was blood clots, quite a few quarter sized blood clots. I kept bleeding for a few minutes and then it stopped. I asked my mom who is a nurse and she said it's probably an irritated hemmerhoid or something and if its not bleeding any longer not to worry.



Just now I had to go, and I did poo just a little but it was covered in blood and clots. Has this ever happened to anyone? Do you think it's time to go see the doctor? Emergency room status or make an appointment and wait a few days?



Please don't quote.

I read something like this a while back, the consensus was that OP had "anal fissures." Not sure how to tell when to see the doctor,

I read about those but read it was painful and this doesn't hurt at all

Ahh, yes the other lady said it was excruciating when she had a bowel movement. I'm no help, then. Sorry. :(

Well I thought fissures...but I never had clots with mine. It wasn't horrible pain though...kind of a burning pain when I pooped. I would get it checked out though, something sounds off.

My sister in law has been dealing with this for some time now and just had a colonoscopy 2 days ago and it turned out to be hemorroids like I told her. They gave her medicine to clear it up. My bet is you have the same thing.
