User avatar Hello,
I'm sorry I can't say what is going on from the history alone. You will need to see a health care provider for a checkup including lab work. Many women do have a tendency to bladder infections and sometimes require a maintenance dose of antibiotics to keep them in check but it is important to determine if there is some underlying cause first.

Vaginal and rectal bleeding may or may not be associated. An exam with good history would be wise so write down to the best of your recollection exactly what you have experienced.

Best wishes.

Hello I have taken plan B pill twice within a months time and I found that I am starting to get yeast infections from it. Is there any home remidies that I could take for it? Does soaking in epsom salt help with yeast?
