Can constipation cause spotting?

I just had a little bit of spotting after being constipated. Is this normal does anyone know?

Can the spotting be caused by hemorrhoids? Constipation and hemorrhoids go hand in hand. Other than that I don't think you should spot from your lady part due to constipation. If you think it was from your lady part I would call your OB ASAP.

it was def from the lady part but the OB is closed Sad it happened at like 7pm. i'm going tomorrow for an ultrasound anyway so i'll ask then. i did some research online after posting this and it seems that it might be a common thing cuz it puts stress on the cervix and makes the cervix bleed? I will ask tomorrow and let you all know what the dr says.
