Possible bloody stool. should i be worried?

Patient: I am 31 weeks pregnant, and I’m experiencing mucus-like, completely pink stool. Should I be worried?

 

 

Symptoms: Abdominal pain

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Since you are pregnant and having abdominal pain with abnormal stools, we need to rule ou t abdominal or intestinal infection. It may need antibiotic treatment as well. Kindly see a gynecologist soon. It may trigger a preterm labor if it is an infection. Drink lots of water and avoid spicy food.Hope this helpedRegards
