I think I started my period last month but I'm not sure. That's when i first had brown discharge for 2 days and that is similar to what happened this month as well (at the same time). I've only had spots of blood before, I've never had just blood, but I am at a young age. Is this normal? when will i get blood?
This sounds like a very light period to me. Lucky you! If you are worried maybe speak to your school nurse if you don't want to speak to your mum about it.
Hi im 15 and I asked a question before about hematospermia, (as I had it before). Recently I got it again and the blood in my ejaculation has been consistent whereas before after the first ejaculation during masturbation the blood stopped and it went away normally. I'm wondering if I have a condition or infection that is causing the blood in my ejaculations? please reply its worrying for a guy!!!
bleeding from the penis after masturbation can be a sign of something more serious. you need to get it checked out.
Hi I have a pea size lump just below my labia. I also have a sore area on the entrance to my vagina and have had dark red blood, which is of a watery consistency but had a five day period last week. The blood appears diffent from period blood. I can't see any cut. Should I consult a doctor?
Maybe nothing to worrie about.. but always good just to get it seen to.
I have had piles for the last 15yrs and the past 7 yrs they have basically ruled my life,i have had the operation to remove them 5 yrs ago but they came back,i have had a blood transfusion as i had lost that much blood about 8 yrs ago and once again i have lost enough blood that my doctor has put me on iron tablets (which i know are not going to make any difference because i am still bleeding) and i have an appt to see a consultant which i know will be a waste of time again. PLEASE HELP!!!!
I am in exactly the same the position as you, but I have had it operated on about four times now. At the last one (a stapled anopexy) I told the doctor it will be a waste of my time but he said the technique had improved since 2005 when I had a stapled anopexy. Well, I had the op late Nov and by early Dec, they had started coming back! I have researched a so called new treatment called HALO (haemorrhoid artery ligation operation) and you should search for it online - watch the videos and decide for yourself. That is what I intend to go for now because it cuts off the blood supply completely and is not a major operation - it is done in the outpatient consulting rooms (possibly).
Hi, I'm 20 years old..I got bleeding after sex. Though it is only for one time, I'm so worried. It doesn't like menstrual blood. It's like fresh blood.

I'm 16 female I have a hard time going for a poo. At christmass I ate alot of liqurice and I went toilet that night and found that there was blood in my poo and it was black. My mom phoned up the NHS and they said it was black from the liqruice and the blood is from being so dry and having a pile problem(in which i had the symptoms). Im sometimes scared to go for a poo as it stings, its dry, i feel piles, and im scared the piles will burst and ill see blood again and i will worry. Sometimes i take a 2 tablespoons of laculose and bran flakes nearly everyday help soften my poo, get rid or the piles, or will it make my stomach bad with the "runs" if i have to much? Please i need help on how much i should take to take away my problems. There is no/very,very little amount blood now, But i would still love help or a cure. Thank you.
