  • Are you constipated? Could be hemorrhoids. I hope you are better but if not you should check to see if there are any free clinics in your area.

  • don't worry about insurance. go to the emergency room. they have to see you. you can pay them 5$ for the rest of your life. i see so many people in the ER without insurance. get it checked.

  • DON'T WORRY! It could be heamorroids or some other kind of damage has happened there, maybe with constipation you've had a tear... Anal bleeding can be a sign of bowel cancer so folks should always get this checked, but this is EXTREMELY unlikely at your age.DON'T BE EMBARASSED, just go to a doctor and get it checked out, just pay what you have to, nothing is more important that your health and there is a 99% chance this is something that you and your doctor can treat easily and with little financial burden.

  • It's not a hemorrhoid and anal fissures don't bleed like a period either. It doesn't matter your age you need to see a doctor asap. Don't worry about insurance, at this point you need to worry about your health and it's true financially hospitals will work with you. Good Luck!!
