Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids

Hey guys! I just got diagnosed with IBS. I was told after a colonoscopy that I have internal hemorrhoids. I went to the bathroom today and I guess one popped but I was told they stop bleeding after 10ish minutes. It’s been bleeding like a bad period ( I know it’s not my period) for 4-5 hours. Has anyone else had this happen?
