Pool of blood in toilet bowl after passing stool. What could be wrong??
I'm 19 year old female. Generally considered v. healthy.
Today, I noticed a large amount of bright red blood in the toilet bowl after passing stools. (I wasn't straining)
This has never happened before and I'm very worried!
The most that has happened has been a small amount of blood on the toilet paper after straining a bit, but nothing at all like the amount of blood I saw today!!
In recent months I have been getting headaches quite often and also sometimes feeling tired more than usual. (possibly this is down to my exam stress but maybe it's all related.)
Any advice/ideas of what might be up would be greatly appreciated!! I'm heading the doctor at the weekend.
