Is there medication to take? Thanks for any replys,
It mosty likely be hemmorhoids because of past symptoms of bleeding. I'm assuming that you have been having constipations because of the bleeding.
I experienced it quite a lot for a good while before and finally went through a painful test for colon cancer. They filled up my large intestine with iodine and took x-ray. I'm not sure if they still do it that way because that was 15 years ago. Thankfully it turned out negative. Anyway, you can pick up hemmorhoidal aids off the counter like TUCKS(you wipe with after BM) and ointment like PREPARATION H. It also helps a lot if you sit on a warm "sitzbath", a small tub device which are usually given to new mothers to take home but I think you can pick it up at a drugstore. You sit on this filled with warm water for 20 mins. or so every day until the hemmorhoids shrink. I suggest that you try pushing the hemmorhoids back in if it doesn't hurt too much. Eating a lot of food with fibers and also fruits like papaya sure helps soften your stools. I myself is thinking of colon cleansing but not sure yet what kind, there's several types and products. All in all though, I would suggest going to a doctor and have it checked up.
