Help! Blood after bowel movement!
Hey, i'm an 18 year old female and at the moment quite worried.
About 5 weeks ago, I had a week where I bloated alot in the evening and had alot of excess wind. Then I noticed a difference in my bowel movements, they weren't "normal" per se, but I wasn't experiencing diarrhoea. I know that may not make sense, but I don't know how to phrase it. I guess, they weren't consistent day to day? After about 5 days of these symptoms, I woke up in the night and I had been bleeding from my anus. Without going to the toilet or anything, then when I did go to the toilet there was even more blood. Obviously I was really alarmed so I had to mention to my parents the problem.
Then it gets more awkward, that morning when I woke up and there was no more rectal bleeding my period kicked it. So when I saw the doctor, she really didn't believe me and asked me to give a stool sample. I never did do it because 2 days later the rectal bleeding had stopped after bowel movements. Plus, starting university which isn't close to the doctors. Didn't want to carry it around. (It was stupid of me, I know)
Now this brings me to the current situation. The exact same thing has happened again. Bloating, gas, change in bowel movements and again this morning rectal bleeding after the bowel movement. I do have a Dr's appointment on Monday but my period started again. I know they won't listen to me, but the bleeding starts on the same day as the womanly problems. (Also, the bleeding i'm talking about is definitely rectal.)
I'm really worried, I have no idea what's wrong. :/
