    ...after straining.. I'm so constipated but need to go to the toilet and everytime I strain I get a brown, red or pink discharge. Lastnight it was red. I've read about blood vessels bursting on your cervix when you strain, do you think I still need to get it checked out? Do I ring epu where I went for scan, 24 hour emergency midwife helpline or my midwife who I haven't met yet?

    Try epi... Have you told your doctor about your constipation? Maybe there's something he can give you for it?

    Hi Sophie. This happens to me too... everytime.
    From what I've read it's not uncommon. I had an early scan at 6+2 because of bleeding and everything was fine.It was only afterwards I realised it coincided with straining too much!
    If I rang mw everytime I had some bleeding I'd be constantly on the phone but it doesn't make it any less scary seeing blood!
    Maybe ring just for peace of mind as of course everyone is different and it's always best just to check. Xx

    I had this early pregnancy too and with red blood. Paid for a couple of scans as was so worried. Had a swab by gp and had an erosion and also bv infection but had some gel and all cleared up. Seems very common so try not to worry x

    Hey lady! Call docs or midwife if you can - but also try to get something for the constipation - I know its hard but try not to strain, it will come out eventually (soz tmi).

    Hope ur OK!

    I have had constipation really bad during this pregnancy. The last two weeks everytime I had went (no 2 sorry tmi) there was bright red blood in loo and when I wiped.

    I am on fibregel and have just been prescribed lactulose.

    I was worried when the doctor said I had to be careful as some can stimulate the uterus as well as the bowel which is not good.

    Beware over the counter.
