Working out

Can cardio and weight training cause bleeding? Did some yesterday and was bleeding real bad last night. Could have been psychological (another miserable new year) or something I ate but it was an awful NYE.

Happy New Year!

Yes, it can cause it in normal healthy people, so definitely with us. I find if I haven't done any training in a couple of weeks, the next time I do I will bleed. The severity depends on if I'm flaring or not.

I find that I can push through it, and after a few days of training it fixes itself. Just keep the training easy and don't push yourself too hard (and watch out for any ab exercises)

Most of my UC was in the rectum and any kind of physical activity, even walking, caused increased bleeding.
