User avatar Dear Karladd,

The heavy bleeding could be caused by pelvic congestion that was caused by the constipation that you were having.

The abdominal pain also could be have been caused by the constipation and then aggravated by the pelvic congestion and it just became a vicious circle till the constipation ended and you had bleeding and it started to improve.

If the symptoms are getting worse, contact your doctor to have another appointment and may be have a ct scan of the abdomen if deemed necessary by your doctor.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D
