I consider my self healthy i drink water 3-4 bottles a day i do suffer from constapation every now and then and drink those teas to help you have a bowel movement.

The blood in the stool most likely is a hemorrhoid especially since your boyfriend saw pink skin hanging outside the anus. Most hemorrhoids are caused by straining too much to pass hard stool . Try taking Citrucel twice a day to help soften your stool and help you to maintain regularity. It's a good idea to drink an 8 oz. glass of water before and after taking the Citrucel so it doesn't make you more constipated and make matters worse. Try increasing the amount of water you drink a day as that will help keep your stool soft. Eating a bowl of oatmeal with ground flax seed every day as well as 6 stewed prunes or apricots will help increase your fiber intake. I have had chronic constipation problems all my life but I can tell you that increasing your water and fiber intake will help you keep your bowels moving on a regular basis so you don't have to strain to have a bowel movement and that will help keep you from getting more hemorrhoids or making the one you have already worse or from getting an anal fissure. The more you do to prevent from getting constipated the better off you will be in the long run and healthier as well.
