TMI : spotting after BM (sad update) (UPDATE #2!)


Pretty much everytime I have a BM, I have some pink spotting.

At around 5 weeks it was only brown spotting a few hours after BM.. but now it's pink, right after BM, and it seems like there's more everytime even though it stops right away.

I haven't seen my doctor yet and he's on holiday for the next two weeks. I've read on forums that spotting after BM is common... but I'd feel better having professionnal advice.

Do you think it's worth going to the ER just for that, knowing I'll probably have to wait there all day? It's really my only option here if I want to see a doctor right now. I won't see mine until sept 8.

Has anyone else experienced this?

You may have Hemorrhoids. I remember when I was pregnant with my second daughter I was in the ER for excessive vomiting and I heard one of the nurses talking to a patient over the phone about bleeding after a BM. She said that's what it was but if it got heavy to go into the ER.

I phoned the telecare line we have here, described my symptoms and their advice was to see a doctor within the next 24 h. I decided to go to the ER. They did some blood test and I'll have the results tomorrow. They also scheduled an ultrasound for tomorrow to make sure everything is ok. The doctor wasn't too worried, but it's just to make sure.

I'm so nervous... at the same time I'm happy I get to have an ultrasound now, but I really hope it will all be good news...

Ohh, I misunderstood. So, you're spotting from the front AFTER you have a BM?? That I'm not too sure about. I would phone your doctor and ask him/her about that. It could just be some pressure but I would definitely check that out.

I had this. My spotting was brown, pink and red all after BM! Turns out I had a little tear that you could see on the ultrasound...straining made it come out a little. But baby was fine, we even saw a heartbeat at 5w5d. My spotting lasted about a week, but only once or twice a day and only when wiping. I am glad you are getting it checked out. Keep us posted!

I had this with my second pregnancy and this one too...I slightly worry about it but its never accompanied by pain or heavy bleeding so i leave it till it dies down. Its frustrating and i hate it

So I ended up going to the ER on sunday. They scheduled an ultrasound monday morning. The doctor wasn't too worried but it was just to make sure.

I was supposed to be 8 weeks and 3 days but the from the ultrasound it looked like I was 6 weeks and 6 days And they couldn't find the heartbeat I know 6-7 weeks is early for heartbeat but the numbers just don't make sense to me. I had a very strong BFP on july 21st... If I'm really just 7 weeks it seems impossible I would have had a BFP so soon after conception.

I went back today to do some blood test, there's still a slight chance it could be alive but I have big doubts I should know the results in 2 days.

The weird thing is I had really bad nausea all of last week, I even vomited once (and at another point before that). If I really miscarried a week and a half ago, I don't know how to explain the nausea... I've also been really tired, having to take naps every day. And my boobs are still a bit sore.

This will be my second miscarriage. I'm so sad... I'll be even more scared next time.
