Random Bleeding

Earlier today, I had a bowel movement and nothing was out of the ordinary. Later, I found blood in my underwear though it had been a couple hours since then. It was bright red so I know it's not an intestinal problem. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

Re: Random Bleeding

I had blood in my stool earlier in the month and after tons of testing (including a CAT scan, a colonoscopy, etc) they determined it was a every day, run of the mill, hemrhoid.

Sounds gross, but I would try and lie down and take a look down there with a mirror. If it seems purple or swollen, or has a small lump, etc when you spread the anus a little bit, that's a hemorrhoid. You can Google pictures online to find comparisons.

The simplest solution is more fiber and they should heal on their own.

I myself have been eating high fiber, low carb, and a cup of Activia yogurt a day and have noticed a huge difference in my bowel health and have not had hemorrhoid bleeding since.

Re: Random Bleeding

Yes, definitely take a look-see least you'll see externally what the doc will see.

I suspect a fissure or a hemmie.

It's all a matter of perspective!
