    Red face bloody BM


    I just had a pretty bloody BM. I didn't notice discoloration of the stool, just a significant amount of blood on the toilet paper. This was a relatively "rough" BM... a real squeezer. Can a large stool cause this, or is there cause for concern. Thanks.

    hey there! If this is any help to you, i hade the same thing happen to me last week. And i talked to my doctor about it, he asid that Bloody BM are sometimes caused by hard stools, but it can also mean something els, like an inflamation of the intestines, it could mean allot of diffrent things. But i wouldn'r get too owrried about it. The doctor is sending me for tests to make sure that nothing is wrong, so i would recommend the same to you. I know that sometimes the tests they make you have, are not very fun..But it's better to be safe than sorry! I know, i've had 1 done 2 weeks ago, and i have to go for another one in 3 weeks. So i hope i was somewhat helpful to you!
    Good luck!

    If you tend to have hemhorroids, I'd say that's probably what the culprit is to your bloody stool, especially if you strained. Try to add more fiber to your diet, drink more water and see if that helps with softer stools. If it keeps up, see your doc to put your mind at ease. Good luck!

    Red face

    Over the past week, it has progressed from blood on the toilet paper to bright red kool-aid colored toilet water. I of course went strait to the doctor's office. She saw no apparent signs of hemorrhoids, though the insides of my rectum are swollen. Her diagnosis is an "anal fissure". She gave me some stool softener. She said that if things do not get better in two weeks, or I experience abdominal pain, then I will have to have a colonoscopy. Is stuff like this common for a 28 year old male? Anyone else experience stuff like this?

    After taking Senokot D (laxative and stool softener), for two weeks, things have really gotten better. No more blood, no more rough squeezers.
