30 Bananas a Day!

Hey there,

I have a small or a big concern - dont know yet.
I would like to know whether anyone of you had red urine or red bowel movements after eating red flesh dragon fruit - and how long after having eaten it?

Im asking coz Im 15 weeks pregnant so Im really worried when seeing my urine red. It started after I bought those dragon fruit (last Wednesday). What is interesting that the red urine happens a DAY after eating it, so its not immediate. E.g I ate it yeasterday morning (2 pieces) and woke up today and saw red urine and red bowel movements!!! I would prefer that it is "only" dragon fruit therefore Im asking. I really dont want to go to doctors.

Do you have some experiences with it?
Please share

Dear Maria,
I get red poo each time I have red flesh Dragon Fruit, but I have not noticed any red colour in my urine.
In my experience, I notice the red colour in my BMs 12-16 hours after eating them.

Its the fructose disolving your kidneys. I have a special import herb from a 489 year old kundalini monk from xhigoyoysue provence in China. I dont normally sell it to westerners but I understand Maria that your in a special case. Its not cheap but I know you put your health first. PM billing details and I can ship overnight. Western Union money transfers only thanks.

Otherwise, red pee from eating red fruits like dragons, sounds all fine to me.
if u were pregnant u wouldnt be so witty, but ok Im laughing
i just wanted to know why red urine comes a day after eating red thing, it seems a lond time for me
and since red urine if the red colour is caused by blood can mean many other things which can be really dangerous for a woman and a baby I wanted to hear some opinions before panicking and calling the doc.
So thank u
Are you able to hear a heart beat at 15 weeks? if so, then check for it......I dont think you can.....so I would wait to see whether or not the baby is ok.

I cant imagine fruit color turning our pee different colors.....Ive eaten loads of watermelon in a sitting and never had red pee, but lots of red poop......any other eperiences?

Oh, and isnt it possible to still have some blood flow (irregular period) at this stage of pregnancy....so its possible its no big deal at all...
Clearly you haven't cut into a red dragonfruit, it has a pigment that's amazingly bright and the juice stains really bad if you're not careful. It's really beautiful to look at and tastes delicious, so juicy and fresh. I just tried my first one today so i'll know what to expect tomorrow
According to Wiki - "Ingestion of significant amounts of red-fleshed dragon fruit (such as Costa Rica Pitaya) may result in pseudohematuria, a harmless reddish discoloration of the urine and faeces."

thanks everybody, indeed it was a false alarm - it was really this fruit that made me panicking...

I think that during pregnancy it can be dangerous to try new fruit :)) I was so alarmed, luckily I didnt go to the doctors.
I bet if one went to a hospital here in america saying they have red urine they wouldnt even listen as to why and immediately do blood work, ultrasound, ct scan, etc...
ugh, so Im glad I asked your experiences before going to a hospital even though I dont know what would they do here in a hospital (normally I wouldnt even ask, but it was because of the pregnancy that I was worried)
