Anal bleeding

About a week ago the area around my anus started to itch. There was no visible difference however. Now the itchiness is gone. However it is randomly dripping dark red blood.
I wear daily pads so when I saw blood I thought it was spotting. But it was not coming from my vagina. It was from my anus. This has been happening since yesteady morning. When I think I need to deficate, I basically push out blood.
I'm terrified that something is very wrong internally.

Still there is no pain around my anus, only my stomach. And my anus looks normal. I do not eat beets or anything that could turn my stool red.
However the other day when I babysat three kids 7-8 years old teamed up and squeezed my waist as hard as they possibly could. I thought I was going to die. They squeezed me so tightly. Could something have burst inside me?

I'm so worried. Should I get an ultrasound? An MRI?

Dear Anon,

Thank you for reaching out to EmpowHer. I'm sorry this is happening to you. I would see your doctor to determine the cause. I don't think what the kids did is causing it.
There can be many reasons for anal bleeding and itching, hemorrhoids are often a common cause. Others include anal fissure, proctitis, Crohn's disease, diverticulosis, ulcerative colitis, ischemic colitis, angiodysplasia, rectal trauma.

I hope this helps you.
