Re: My bowels have been very dark?
Pepto bismol and some other medicines can turn your stools dark. This is not a problem. Blood in the stool can also make them darker so it can be something you need to have checked out. Don't be embarrassed or freaked out about wanting to be healthy. If this is a problem that has gone on for a few days and cannot be attributed to diet or medication you need to tell you parents you need to see a doctor. It is probably not a problem, but don't take a chance
