Is it normal to bleed when you poop while pregnant It is normal to get hemorrhoids while pregnant, due to the dehydration causing constipation and the extra pressure the baby puts on your digestive tract. I don’t get how that is related. Hemorrhoids can cause bleeding when you poop, and hemorrhoids often literally pile onto the misery of pregnancy. Is that a joke The piles are slang term for hemorrhoids. I don’t care what it is called. I need to know how to get rid of them. Drink lots of fluids, eat a lot of fibers so you don’t have to strain to poop, don’t.
Sit on the toilet for hours trying to go to the bathroom. I just have to go to the bathroom every hour. When you pee, don’t sit there for another few minutes trying to strain to push out poop. I’ve heard the commercials for witch hazel pads and other treatments. Those should be safe for pregnant women. They are. Though you should talk to the doctor before using any laxatives. Sometimes I get bright red blood and if feels like someone is stabbing me in the butt. That’s nothing like the commercials.
The dehydration could cause a big, hard poop. The tissue can’t stretch to push it out, so it tears. That’s like a bad labor story. You end up with a rectal tear, and it is a rip in the skin if not in the muscle. You’ll get blood and pain every time you poop. That’s almost worse than being in labor, because then you get an epidural. Do I need to see the doctor Sure, if it won’t heal. Or if it bleeds even when you aren’t pooping. I really hope I don’t have to have surgery down there.
