Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
i understand your fear.
But in most cases this is a harmless cause.
Hemorrhoids can bleed sometimes causing fresh blood in the toilet bowl not mixed with the stool.
During period due to the hormonal actions, hemorrhoids also can bleed without pain.
They may not be visible from outside.
Any other serious condition will cause more symptoms like appetite loss, nausea, vomiting, persistent lower abdominal pain etc.
You should check with your doctor also.
But do not panic right now.
Hemorrhoid related bleeding subsides within 3-4 days usually.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
