Vaginal spotting after bowel movement? (TMI sorry)
Jan 18, 2021 5:49PM
Hi, I'm really early (13dpo) with strong positive tests already.
Each time I go for a poo, I seem to get some vaginal bleeding, varied in colour. Sometimes red/pink/brown.
Is this normal?

Hey! I think it can occur in early pregnancy ... I had a very very light pink discharge last week (5 and half weeks pregnant) because I was a bit constipated and strained slightly (sorry for info overload ha!). In early pregnancy because of all the changes going on, bowel movements can irritate the cervix and cause spotting. If it gets any heavier I would definitely speak to your GP ... hope that helps!
