Re: rectum blood

I would not think so. Are you sure the blood was from your rectum and not vagina? I know when we menstruate the blood usually leaks back to that area and when you wipe there is blood, but it's from the vagina, not rectum. If it really was from your rectum, then I would guess bleeding hemmoroids or something. You should get it checked out I would say.

Re: rectum blood

No it can't be from ovarian cysts. If you were bleeding from the rectum, it would have to be from something else.

Re: rectum blood

Hello Kev,

How do you know that you are bleeding from your rectum ? Did you see blood on your stool in the toilet ? Or perhaps you saw blood on the toilet paper after having a bowel movement ? You can make sure that the blood is not coming from your vagina by taking a tampon and inserting the soft end into your vagina gently (not necessarily all the way, just a little). If it has blood on it then the spotting is coming from your vagina.

If you are experiencing rectal bleeding you may have hemmorrhoids or a fissure or something else so check this with your doctor so that he or she can have a look to make sure. If the blood is coming from your vagina and you are not supposed to be on your period then you should also see your doctor about this so that they can advise you on the best course of action.

It is extremely unlikely that ovarian cysts would cause rectal bleeding so see your doctor about this so that you can stop worrying and get the problem fixed as soon as possible.

All the best.

Re: rectum blood

I went to the ER today and they gave me a CAT Scan and said I had an ovarian cyst that burst and that is why I am bleeding. It is positivly from my rectum and they said it is from the cyst which doesnt make any sense to me. I have had a stomach ache for over a month now on my right side. Thanks so much for your concern in helping me understand and see if I should not take what the doctor at the hospital said.

Re: rectum blood

Hello again,

It is very difficult to diagnose a ruptured cyst. The only way is to see fluid in the cul de sac region and "guess" that this occurred due to a ruptured cyst (fluid in the abdomen is caused by a multitude of other things).

You seem to be quite certain that the blood is originating from your rectum so see if your family physician can refer you to a gastroenterologist, a specialist who deals with these things. A simple sigmoidoscopy may uncover the reason very quickly.

This is a procedure that is done in about 15 minutes while you are awake where they look at the lower third of the colon (if you like, you can also watch on the monitor). If the blood you saw was bright red (as opposed to brownish or black) then more than likely it is coming from this area. The doctor will be able to see if you have internal or external hemmorrhoids or fissures that are causing the bleeding. When I had this procedure done, my surgeon only required a couple of enemas on the morning of the procedure. This was quick and easy and cleaned out the area very well so that the surgeon was able to see what was there.

If a colonoscopy is required (ie. to look at the entire colon) then you will be sedated but everyone I know who had this done (including my mom) says that they feel extremely well rested when they wake up. The prep for this one is a little longer and you have to drink something the night before in order to clean out your entire colon.

If you are having abdominal pain with rectal bleeding I would strongly suggest that you get a referral to a specialist who deals with these things so that you can find the reason and fix it. Abdominal pain with bleeding may be suggestive of diverticulitis or inflammatory bowel disease (ie. Crohn's) or irritable bowel syndrome to name some of the most common reasons.

Don't go by what they told you in the emergency room. Get it checked out properly just to be sure.
