Question: Rectal bleeding (sometimes solid) during first trimester


 h0n9tran - Sun Oct 31, 2004 11:17 pm

Hello,

My wife is currently in her first trimester of pregnancy with our second child.

We are having some concerns. She has been having blood accompany her bowel movements and today had a solid piece of blood (blood clot???) also pass.

What could this be? Could she be having hemorrhoids? We will be seeing a doctor soon.

Thanks,
h0n9tran

User avatar Hi!

There are many causes for rectal bleeding, and hemorrhoids is one cause that is exacerbated in a first-trimester pregnancy. This could be compounded by constipation as well. It is best to consult the doctor for definite therapy.
