Blood from gut?

What classifies ad blood in stool, really?
I went to the bathroom like normal the other day, nothing unusual in any way.
But the wipe got more pink than anything else. Like watered blood. Nothing looked strange about the stool, though.
Would that classify as blood in stool or not, since there wasn't any in the actual stool? I didn't seem to be bleeding anywhere, so it must've come from my gut, though.
I'm going to get my stomach examined next week, but I just wondered if it's anything urgent so I should call the hospital right away? Nothing's hinted at anything potentially dangerous before.

Re: Blood from gut?

When blood comes from your stomach it comes out as back in yoru stool not red or pink . If it's from a hemroid (which can be still inside and not visible on the out side ) it woudl be pink or red //but it can also be like tha from colitus or crohons ...try a search engine on them for more info. But honestly as long as it's not happening alot it's hopefully just a hemroid from having a hard or big stool...good luck at the doctors !!

Re: Blood from gut?

just wondering if you are 100% certain that this didn't actually come from urine?its just the 'watered down' part of it.usually when blood is from a hemmorhoid or fissure it is streaked and pretty red,unless you had a very loose type stool?with females it can sometimes be a bit harder to nail it down,thats all.has this happened since or just a one time deal? **
