Vaginal bleeding following bowel movement.

I have had a pessary ring in place, successfully for about 10 years. I am using vaginal oestrogen crem. Recently had a slightly difficult bowel movement bowel movement, after which I experienced slight vaginal bleeding. I will make an appointment with my GP, but wondered if anyone else had experienced this? Its a bit worrying.

just a guess , but would imagine you had to strain to pass stool and it might have caused extra pressure vaginally causing your pessary to rub against vaginal walls causing a slight bleed .

Hopefully this is just a one off . Vaginally walls are so fragile post menopausal .
