Blood When Going To Toilet


Hi, sorry this is a bit tmi but pregnancy is in so many ways anyway.

I have piles from 5 babies before this one. Usually they only bleed when I'm constipated or if they're swollen. They're not at all just now, but I'm having fresh red blood when I go to the toilet. Is this still the piles or should I be concerned? My dad died of bowel cancer in his 40s and I'm in my 30s so I'm extra worried. Is it possible to irritate the piles when they aren't swollen? I have a doctor appointment this week, but can they do any tests when I'm pregnant? Many thanks xx

I understand your concern. My grandfather passed of colon cancer in his early 50s and my mother has been having polyps removed since her early 30s. I'm turning 30 end of April and frequently have digestive issues so its top of mind for me.

Just to help ease your mind - I've been told that the increased blood flow will irritate any existing issues. I think the issue you are describing is likely attributed to the increased blood flow and increased sensitivity of those vessels - but agree you should discuss with your doctor at your next appt.

FX everything is fine
