| | lots of blood in toilet! please help!
today, after two days of constipation, i sat down the toilet and had a rather large, mildly painful bowel movement. it was decently large. ( im sorry, this entire post is almost graphically disgusting, i apologize but i really need advice ) i felt all fine - had some very, very mind cramps, as if my period was maybe coming in a few days, nothing major, hardly noticeable, actually. When i got up, and turned around however - there was anywhere from three or four spoon's worth of bright, bright red blood ( or maybe like a third of a cup?) anyways, a lot. Not the entire bowl filled with blood, but, a lot. A decent amount. For women, if you've ever been on your period and sat down just in time to release a clot, that kind of blood. Except this was bright red and definitely coming from my anus. I realize i said i had cramps so the obvious implications are period, but again, they were very minor cramps i usually get much worse ones when period is actually hitting, and i know for a fact this was coming soley from my behind.
I am a seventeen year old female and this really alarmed me. However, i have severe anxiety, im pretty sure i've got Irritable bowel ( multiples traumas in my life, had particularly stressful week honestly ) and i don't get to go to teh doctor much because of family circumstances, my family has decided im freaking crazy and they treat me horrendously if i even sneeze and make fun of me, it's really upsetting. I have done as told and not "googled" symptoms, but this really worries me. It is only this once that it has happened.
I have had recent exposure to cipro, amoxicilian, and a very short bout with bactrium because i was allergic, but took probiotics while on these mediciations and have no nasea, diahhrea, or other things commonly associated with c diffficile, thank god. I am hoping I really just ripped myself a new one with this constipation. My mom has flat out refused to send me to a doctor because this happened at school and she does not think it is serious. Do you guys think that I should go? Or will I maybe be fine? I eat very healthy, and just today I started taking culturelle probiotics again to make sure I don't get anymore sick. Someone please put me at ease and say that three spoon's worth ( a spoon like to eat soup) or maybe more of blood is nothing to get worked up about. No family history of cancer, eat well like i said, due to recent antibiotic measures i strongly doubt it's an infection, and because i seem to have no other symptoms except the blood i seriously doubt it's c difficile but again i am no doctor or i wouldn't be asking your opinions. thank you.
