User avatar Dwd,
It all depends on the amount of force you used. Either way, you need to be examined. You may have piles and this should be excluded. Did you bleed again after that?

I drank some magnesium citrate. I am able to go to the washroom now.. No sign of blood... Do i need to be checked out still?

User avatar If it was just that one incident you can follow a wait and see policy. Check your stools and undergarments for any signs of bleeding in the near future. If any bleeding or other symptoms should arise then it may be a good idea to get examined.
