There is a very small swipe of blood on the tissue when I wipe, but no more. The first or second time it happened I thought maybe an anal fissure since I wasn't used to have harder stools (I was taking a medication that had a side effect of making my stools softer), but since it's happened every time for the last 10 times or so, I'm thinking hemorrhoids, but I've never had them before so I wanted to ask.
If it is hemorrhoids will an OTC cream take care of it? Can anyone recommend one? Do I need to go to the doctor? If so which one, family doc or gyno (probably a dumb questions but I wasn't sure).
