Am I being paranoid (TMI)

I plan to call the doctor I'm just curious if this is normal or not.

 I had a csection a week ago and haven't had a real bm until yesterday. The stool was very hard and I had a lot of cramping/pushing to get it out. After which I noticed my bleeding doesn't look like normal period blood. It's much thinner and is bright red. Is your bleeding different than period blood? Am I being paranoid or did I maybe pull an internal stitch?

Re: Am I being paranoid (TMI)

  • Is it actually coming out of your vagina? TMI I know but I also had a csection and after my first bm my butt was bleeding. I asked my dr about it and he said it was normal
  • I had a vaginalburth but also had some butt bleeding after a super hard poop... The joys of child birth :)

    Could be hemorrhoids. I had more bleeding from those with my first than actual vaginal bleeding it seemed. Are you using stool softeners? If you are on any Rx pain meds, might be a good idea as those can cause constipation.

    Sorry, no butt bleeding. I feel like the blood from my vaginal looks different.. but at the same time I feel like maybe I just wasn't paying close attention before. I'm definitely bleeding more but not excessively. I'm worried I pulled one of the stitches in my uterus. I'm going to go ahead and call the doctor now just for peace of mind.

    When in doubt, call the doctor... and I second what a PP said, take stool softener (like Colace). I was taking it twice a day in the beginning and my poos were still really hard (sorry TMI), so I can't imagine what they might have been like without it....

    So I called the doctor and she said it would be REALLY hard to pop an internal stitch.. so i'm happy to have the peace of mind.

    Yeah, I've been taking colace 3x/day since my csection and still have really hard poos. It hurts so badly... She suggested I switch to milk of magnesia. But bleeding is not fun. I'm so ready to be healed.
