Red face Abnormal bleeding - should I be concerned?

I'm a 45 year old female, peri-menopausal, but I don't think my problem is related to that. My abnormal bleeding (at least I think it's abnormal) occurs any time of the month, when I am having a bowel movement and I have to push just the littlest bit. The blood is bright red and comes from the vaginal area. I have no pain, but the blood concerns me. I have had two children, both vaginally, and my doctor has told me that my uterus is very low. Is the bleeding something I should be concerned about? Thanks for any info you can give me!!

I have no idea if this is normal or not, but as it occurs when you have a bowel movement, and it hasn't happened before, I would be concerned enough to call my doc and ask. Good luck.

This is not normal and needs to be investigated. See your doc and get this checked out.
