Possible bloody stool. should i be worried?

Patient

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

Symptoms:  Abdominal pain
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Since you are pregnant and having abdominal pain with abnormal stools, we need to rule out 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 helped
Regards
