ABSTRACT: Drug-induced bleeding presents in many ways, including excessive bruising, nosebleeds, heavy menses, gastrointestinal bleeding, and rectal bleeding. Drug-induced bleeding is potentiated by numerous drugs, natural medicines, and drug-drug interactions. Pharmacists should be aware of patient-specific risk factors and should actively monitor for medications that contribute to bleeding. By minimizing the risk of drug-induced bleeding in patients, pharmacists have the opportunity to reduce long-term adverse effects.

bleeding from vagina when passing a stool - Blood Disorders - MedHelp
Although the term applies most often to this condition in females, males can also develop it. Rectoceles in men are uncommon, and associated with prostatectomy. Mild cases may simply produce a sense of pressure or protrusion within the vagina, and the occasional feeling that the rectum has not been completely emptied after a bowel movement. Moderate cases may involve difficulty passing stool because the attempt to evacuate pushes the stool into the rectocele instead of out through the anus , discomfort or pain during evacuation or intercourse, constipation , and a general sensation that something is "falling down" or "falling out" within the pelvis. Severe cases may cause vaginal bleeding, intermittent fecal incontinence , or even the prolapse of the bulge through the mouth of the vagina, or rectal prolapse through the anus.
An Overview of Gastrointestinal Tract Bleeding
Rectal bleeding is the presence of bright red blood on the tissue paper, or in the toilet. This may happen after a bowel movement. Gastrointestinal bleeding is bleeding from the upper part of the digestive system. You may notice the presence of black, tarry or maroon stools when you have a bowel movement. Upper GI bleeding may also be vomited.
Please do not call our clinics or hospitals with questions. Constipation occurs when stools are difficult to pass. Some people are overly concerned with the frequency of their bowel movements, because they have been taught that a healthy person has a bowel movement every day.
