The Strategist (2 years ago):
After I was pregnant I was given percocets for pain management and they caused enough bleeding to scare the crap out of me for a moment. Though I've also had a fissure for years from IBS, so it wasn't as scary as I'm sure it would be for someone whose never had any blood "down there". Anyways, give it a few days and it usually clears up. I've never went to be seen about it because I just stopped taking the percs and switched to herbal pain management. I think it was caused because synthetic analgesics cause constipation and dehydration, which irritate the colon.
If you have any hemrroids, polyps or verticula, it can irritate them too.
