Dear BeingGirl Experts,
When I get my period, I get blood in the back of my underwear. I checked, and I think there's blood coming from my butt. That's not normal, right?
Blood coming from the anus would be unusual for young woman. Are you sure this is where the blood is coming from? Sometimes the menstrual blood leaks toward your back; especially if you are sitting. Hemorrhoids may cause bleeding, but so may more hidden causes. If you are sure about this rectal bleeding, let your mom know (if you still live at home) and see your doctor/health care professional.
Hope this is helpful,
Your BeingGirl Experts
