Leah asks,

I have had poop in my blood from mid-December last year to the beginning of March. When pooping it was VERY painful... so much so that I literally cringed even at the thought of pooping. Anyways, I finally went to the doctor to see what was up. She did her probe and declared me perfectly healthy, but gave me some medication to see if it would reduce the pain and the blood. It did. But since I've discontinued the use, I've started to poo blood again and it hurts a LOT. Has this happened to anyone? Does anyone have any idea what's wrong?





Poonurse responds:

Do you have poop in your blood, or blood in your poop? Very different problems.

If you have the former, I would say you are in deep doo-doo, no pun intended. It is very hard to get poop out of your blood.

If the problem is the latter, I would advise you to start back on the medication your doctor gave you for this problem. See if you can't find out what the ACTUAL NAME of your condition is, from your REAL DOCTOR. This would go a long way towards helping me give you some advice.

Let me know what it is when you find out, and I'll see if I can offer any help.





Leah writes back,

The medication my doctor gave me is called Proctomyxin HC. I was to apply it morning and night and after every poop for ten days. I did all of this as instructed. My doctor thought it was a cut that I had "in there." The medication started to work, but not after one huge poop of blood. It was on my poop, I think, although I didn't excatly pick up my poop and open it up. After this terrifying incident, it went away -- both the pain and the blood. It stoped for the duration of my ten days, and I was a happy pooper. Since then, I've discontinued the medication (as instructed), but the blood has now returned, along with the pain. But, if this makes sense, the pain has moved to a different area in my rectum. But it hurts just as much!





Dear Leah,

As you know, I am not a doctor. But it sounds like you possibly could have a rectal fissure, which is like a tiny tear in the lining of the rectum. It can cause pain and rectal bleeding such as you describe.

But I must tell you that beyond following a high fiber diet and drinking tons of water (these make the poop easier to pass and less likely to keep irritating your rectum), you REALLY NEED to go back to the butt doctor and report that your symptoms have returned.

If you have a family doctor treating you, ask for a referral to a gastroenterologist. They specialize in these kinds of problems. But do go back.

Thanks for asking Poonurse!

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

-- Poonurse

Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.

Got a question for her?

Dear AB: If you are only 14, you cannot drive yourself, so someone else will have to take you to the doctor. Try to find someone else who poops, and who knows that you poop, and tell that person about this. Oh, wait--that might be Mom, or even Dad! A day or two of seeing a little blood may be nothing to worry about, but a month? Come on, now--tell someone!

Dear AO: We'd love to help, but we are not doctors (most of us, anyway) and don't even know what to ask you about other symptoms, how long you've noticed the blood, your diet, etc. Blood coming from your butt could mean something serious, so please get to your doctor immediately, if not sooner.

Dear ERIC, I would never consider telling you to go see a doctor. I think it would be wiser for you to go see an English teacher so we know what you're talking about. You had me on the "im 18", my guess would have been under ten.

Dear AC who posted directly after ERIC, I'm afraid I must give you the same advice.

All of you last three who pooped blood: You must see a doctor! Small amounts rarely or occasionally on the poop or toilet paper: not a problem; likely a hard or pointy something came out with your turd. But lots of blood, especially on a repeat basis--not so good! Lots of possible causes; we on this site can't tell you which one it might be. Your doctor is your best bet. He will not be surprised that you have a bottom, or that you poop; he knows that before you walk in. He poops, too. Don't be embarrassed. It may be inconvenient to go to the doctor, even a bit scary; but it might be much worse if you don't.

I had a poop while I was sick this morning, it seemd ok then I wiped and there was a shitload of blood.

mr.white's picture

I poop at least once a day, one day I poop and see a little blood floating over the top of it but I don't pay any mind to it. The next day I go and when I turn around to flush the whole inside of the toilet is filled with blood, not a lot but enough to worry me. I go to wipe and there it is again so not to sound cowardly but am I gonna die or be sick or anything oh and also I'm a teenager so should I be extra worried. Please respond as soon as possible, thank you.

This used to happen to me all the time, in fact I even thought it was perfectly normal. What worked for me was to watch the milk in my diet. I realized I wasn't drinking any milk at all, cuz I was busy and it just went bad all the time. I found if I don't drink milk my poop gets really hard and comes out clean but always with a little blood. When I do drink milk it becomes mushy and even like diarrhea so it becomes a bit of a challenge to drink the right amount to make it come out "right". A bit in my cereal seems to do it. My mom always told me you had to eat a little bit of fat to grease your insides so maybe that's part of it too. Just thought I'd throw that out there for all the people wondering.

I'm 13 plus, going on 14, and I had diarrhea about a week ago, so I tried not going to poo so often... but then yesterday I went to poo. and it was very painful and hard to shit it out. I always poo in less then 5 mins but this time it wass too hard to poo and I sat thre for more then 5 mins . After poo-ing.. I went to watch the TV, but I felt that I had to poo again, so I went to sit and try to poo, the poo did not come out but my butt was very painful so I put a toilet paper at my butt and then I saw a few drops of blood! I was very scared please help me!

i am a 13 year old girl and i am scared to death about cancer and any types of dieseases and i have been trying to stay away from junk food (chips chocolate..etc)its not easy:l

here is some advice:

EAT HEALTHY :)

FOOD WITH FIBRE IS GREAT

LOTS OF WATER - 8? GLASSES A DAY

GET ADVICE FROM AN ADULT :)

OR PROBABLY MIGHT WANT TO SEE A DOCTOR IF ITS BEEN HAPPENING FOR MORE THAN A WEEK

**IF THE BLOOD IS DARK AND IN CLUMPS ITS MORE DANGEROUS and can lead to colon cancer over a long period of time

**IF IT IS LIGHT RED , IT''LL PROBABLY GET BETTER ONCE YOU FIX YOUR DIET:) -FOR THIS ONE YOU MIGHT HAVE SOME ANAL PAIN

hope this really helps :D

figured out what's wrong with almost all if not all of us. we have stomach acid deficiency. there might be various disorders or diseases that are causing it, there have been various ones listed as the culprits for different people, but whatever the disorder, they all seem to contribute to the stomach acid deficiency. i think mine is addison's disease, although i'm not sure that's it, i definitely have little to no stomach acid.

http://www.modernherbalist.com/betaine.html

visit that site to order stomach acid, and if you want more links on symptoms of this, visit 6ray6.blogspot.com as i have posted some more links there.

iNsOmNiAcAnDrEw's picture

Also guys, just for further information, I haven't done it lately...but one thing that I noticed...it's either something that I feel forced to do or it helps with the pain...I'm not sure which...but my poop will often feel like it's getting stuck in my hairs or just inside the butthole but either way I end up pulling the poop out. I'd never done that before. I mean, pulling it out of butt hairs is one thing, that's usually parts of the poop that get stuck or whatever, but the entire poop turd getting pulled out is really extreme and I wonder if anyone else had to do this.

iNsOmNiAcAnDrEw's picture

MASTERS, i have the same problem with the super sticky poop. it's not happening as often as you, though.

iNsOmNiAcAnDrEw's picture

also, my theory in regards to not feeling pain(although you'd think you should if you were pooping blood) would be that your extremely low cortisol (or was that high cortisol) well, anyway, your malfunctioning adrenal glands (from addison's disease) maybe disabling your sense of dread and ability to feel the pain. JUST a theory. addison's disease may be closely related to emotionally traumatic experiences, imo.

iNsOmNiAcAnDrEw's picture

others with symptons like mine:

another bit of evidence to consider is if your butthole seems too tight and/or you're too skinny and are pooping like feels like glass...

you might have addison's cuz this sounds like you could be affected by respiratory and metabolic acidosis. meaning the quality of your water is bleh.

when i started drinking essentia water it helped alot! now that i stopped drinking it, the blood pooping returned! essentia water has a really high pH and is supposed to help get your cells oxygenated. but with metabolic acidosis mixed with hypoventilation and/or hypopnea, you are getting screwed. hypoventilation sounds like it means you are prone to humongous burps for no apparent reason and hypopnea may be what will confuse you into thinking that you have asthma. i was falsely led to believe that i have asthma, but after reading about asthma i'm pretty sure i do not really have it.

So...I'm just now getting into 2007 i think...and wow there's a lot more occurences of this starting in 2006. and looks like maybe more in 2007, judging by the posts on this site. I've had this problem for YEARS now. Maybe as long as the rest of you, and I have some theories about what's causing it for a lot of us. I need to read more comments and remember more of what I was going to say, but for now, I want to thank everyone that gives more detail. Also, IMO, this could be related to low blood pressure. DID YOU KNOW THAT DOCTORS DON'T CHECK LOW BLOOD PRESSURE PROPERLY? OH YEAH, EITHER ADDISON'S DISEASE OR OTHER DISEASES, I WAS READING ABOUT THEM AND WHEN IT TALKED ABOUT SYMPTOMS IT MENTIONED THAT YOU'LL GET THE LOW BLOOD PRESSURE WHEN YOU STAND. BUT DOCTORS DON'T COMPARE BLOOD PRESSURE SITTING AND STANDING. THEY ONLY CHECK IT WHEN YOU'RE SITTING, OR MAYBE LYING DOWN? DON'T REMEMBER. BUT DEFINITELY NOT WHILE STANDING. DOCTORS ARE MORONS. SERIOUSLY. ONLY SOME OF THEM ARE GOOD. I'll post back with more information.

I've been having this exact same problem :( It seriously hurts so bad to poop that I shudder at the thought. And the bigger it is the more blood there is. And it's gotten to the point where I want to eat less so I wont poo as much. What's wrong with meeeeee! lol

PoopReport of the Year AwardComment Content ModeratorComment Quality Moderatorf 5000+ points

Dear AC ... First we must make a decision as to whether or not the blood is also inside the poo. The simple way to check for this is to catch a handful of poo, wipe off the external blood, then squish the remainder between your fingers and check for internal color and get back to us.

Or you could read the dozens of posts above yours that address the same question. Probably just hemorrhoids but a doctor can give you something to help heal them or at least calm the pain a bit.

I've been pooing with blood on the outside of the poo for the last 2 weeks. When i wipe the blood is bright red, it hurts alot to take a dump. Got any idea what it could be and how i can get rid of it.

Anonymous Coward's picture

Hi all. I have not taken a dump in about a month or so. Today and on many other occasions, I would try, but it either wouldn't come out or would be excruciatingly painful. It feels like a giant rock in there. I have a pretty good diet and dring lots of water but I just can't get it to soften up. I am now deathly afraid of "going" now after reading all of these comments but I need to fix this somehow. I'm only 14 so I don't really feel comfortable telling my parents about it. Any household solutions would be greatly appreciated. I am willing to do pretty much anything at this point.

Penelopoop ... You need to get over your dislike of looking at your own poop. There are many things you can learn from its size, shape, and color. You don't need to squeeze it and check its texture but you do need to look at it.

I have read most the comments and I have nothing against the site, I happen to just stumbled upon it. I had the same problem as everyone does, happened recently, so I took action by drinking prune juice and green tea. I also am scheduled to see a doctor two weeks from now, I hope I don't have a serious medical condition. I don't really look at my toilet when I flush, it grosses me out, but I happened to look at my toilet wipe which looked kinda bloody pink/pale red like a glimpse then threw it/flushed it along with poopees. I have OCD, and I don't like looking at poops or anything nasty, LOL..but this worries me now...I had to see a doctor, asap.

Well today I had a lot of back pain and I haven't been sitting too long at all today.. I went to the washroom once earlier this morning, did not have any problems but some back pain... Now the pain has progressed and I cannot go to the bathroom, there is blood in the paper tissue but very little poop coming out if at all, I have been having this problem for at least an hour almost two and been drinking lots of water... I have decided I am definitly going to be seeing a doctor asap...

4 years ago, i was having alot of problems with blood in my stool, and there would be some mucus along with it...it went on for a while...and i went to the doctor and found out i had ulcerative colitis...and had to be on medicine daily...it eventually went away on its own though...all the sudden the past 2 times ive gone, ive been wiping a little blood, bright red, and i keep thinking i started my period..since its due...but no...so im worried maybe a hemmorhoid...or a tear..but i dont see how i could have gotten either one. its not the same symptoms at all of ulcerative colitis..so hopefully nothing serious...

Anonymous Coward's picture

So, like many of you I've been seeing blood in my crap. For the past few days when I took a dump, there were pinkish specks on the toilet paper when I wiped. Now just today when I went number 2, it felt normal, it LOOKED normal, but when I looked on the toilet paper it was covered in bright red blood. The same thing occurred a few hours ago when I went again. I sit at my computer for hours on end a lot, I eat a lot of junk, I rarely drink water, and I'm very scared. And I really don't want to tell my mom or go a doctor. Please help!

Dr.Poopster's picture

alot of pooping problems(including bloody stool)can be easily solved by simply including plenty of fiber in your diet.fiber has many benfits to us. One of which is the huge role it plays in digestion, which solves the frequent "trouble going" or(constipation) problems most people have. i saw one comment where a young gentleman said he poops regularly (every other day). this is technically considered constipation. especially at 18 yrs old. im 30 yrs old and i go poop 3 times a day(bare minimum),and its always very comfortable experience. if your not going at least 1-2 times a day eat more fiber. the "pushing" and spending excessive time on the john causes hemmoirroids which is what makes toilet paper and poop bloody. the easiest fixer upper for this is to eat fruit and whole grain cereal. it doesnt have to be nasty tasting health junk. lots of cereals have dietary fiber in it that taste good. i would recommend going for 10-15 grams of dietary fiber per day at least. look on the labels it tells you how much your food has in it. and if possible stay away from over processed foods or refined stuff. if you feel this is not why you have bloody stool then try and stop lifting excessively heavy stuff and use your legs to lift instead. they make over the counter hemmoroidal relief medicine. if problem persists consult a physician.

Dear AC......Hemorids are no problem at all but, if you ever develop hemorrhoids you might want to get a doctor to take a peek up your asshole. I think it would be safe for you to treet your own hemorids but leave the treatment of your hemorrhoids to a professional....I hope this helps.

Hi All,
I AM NOT A DOCTOR BUT THIS SEEMS TO WORK THROUGH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE. If your stool is hard and you want to make soft, then eat a papaya fruit or
drink lots of papaya liquid if you can't find actual fruit.

If you are on a long journey and you want to
avoid going to a toilet to pass stool, then eat a guava fruit or drink guava juice.

Hope this will help thousands.

Regards,

Alick.

Okay, I've been reading these posts...mainly for entertainment purposes but I have noticed an ooing trend. Stupidity! Here's the deal, if your expelling blood for more than two days when you poop you really need to see a doctor. Embarrassing yes, but necessary. Most of the time you'll probably have a hemmeroid or a fissure or even just a tear which can be relatively harmless...but there is a chance it could be much more serious and possibly fatal. I am a 24 year old woman who had the same damn issues as yall, and i went to the doctor to find out I have Crohn's disease. It is serious, noncurable, but with proper medications, in my case due to the severity a round of chemo...it can be put into remission. It has the potential to lead to other issues as well which can be fatal. Had i not gone to the doctor, I wouldn't have found out and I would be worse off than I am now. Embarassing yes...but a necessity. The exam is painless...they may do a rectal exam, but most likely you poop in a cup and they test it for blood...they run other tests as well to make sure its not being caused by a bacteria and you may get a CT. In my case i got a colonoscopy...but i didn't feel a damn thing because they put my ass out for it. no pun intended. Look its beter to be safe than sorry.

Both Anonymouses: Pooping blood in large amounts is not normal. First, period blood doesn't exit through the anus; peeing blood from the anus means something is wrong. 12-year-old: It's possible you are starting to have periods, but in that case you wouldn't be "pooping" blood. Please, both of you, see your doctor quickly. We like giving our little bits of wisdom on this site, but most of us are not physicians, and even a real physician would have to see you to tell what is wrong. Go to the doctor!

Well yesterday and today I saw some blood when I wiped my butthole and I ask my friend she's a Doc. and say that could be hemorrhoid, last weekend I drank like a fish and she said that maybe that was the caused of the problem, so she recommended me to drink a lot of water and eat fruit and tonight I'm feeling better because my ASS doesn't hurt when I have to shit.

AC 5/16: A little blood on toilet paper may just be from a hard turd coming out; see if it goes away in a few days. If not, try some Balneol or similar stuff after your b.m. If it still doesn't go away, or gets words, go to the doctor whether you want to or not. He (or she) has seen it all before and won't embarrass you.

AC 5/9: I don't know what would make brown mucus, though the Ex-Lax might contribute to it. However--you can't keep taking Ex-Lax forever, so in my opinion you need to revisit your doctor to see how soon you can start to rely on your own system to move your bowels. If you take laxatives long enough, I believe you develop a dependence on them and can't have natural bowel movements. Bad.

Bright red blood with pooping could also mean an anal fissure. Fissures happen when the poop is too dry and/or too large to pass and causes like a paper cut-like tear on the anus. like el scumbag says tell your mother so she can make an appointment with an md for you.

Yes. Tell your mother as she'll be just as worried about it as you and go to the doctor. Please.

If it's fresh red blood, it's likely that you just have 'roids. If it's dark blood, this could be a sign of bleeding further up in the colon. Either way, you should have a doctor examine you. Bleeding from any orifice other than the one that bleeds monthly is a sign that you need to be checked out.

Don't be scared. You are the most precious thing in your mother's life and nobody will give you better support or a more comforting hand to hold.

Dear AC.....No need to be frightened, although this is a poop related humor site many people who post here were originally drawn to the site by conditions from which they themselves suffered. Also you must take into consideration that there are many people who fear going to a doctor more than they fear death itself.

You may have noticed that a bit of advice that is repeated over and over again in Poop Report is, "YOU NEED TO SEE A DOCTOR." Some good advise is offered to those who suffer from many maladies by those who have suffered the same thing.

Poopie pie, if you read any of the above posts, or any of the thousands of similar posts all over Poop Report about blood coming out of your backside, you'll see that they have one common answer: GO TO SEE A DOCTOR.

Blood coming from any orifice other than your vagina for a few days per month IS A SIGN OF SOMETHING WRONG. It could be piles or it could be something else. The important thing is not to waste time, get it looked at and get it looked at NOW, for your own peace of mind if nothing else. Although you should be eating more fibre and drinking more water anyway, you can still do this as a lifestyle change for the future rather than waiting for a change and continuing to bleed. Stop fucking about on the internet RIGHT NOW and get your bleeding arse to a medic. You'll have to do it eventually so now is as good a time as any.

Good luck, come back on here afterwards and let us know how it went. We wish you well, Poopie Pie.

for the past two days there has been ALOT of blood in my poop. Today it looked like I had my period out my butt. this happened a couple months ago but went away. i admit i dont drink enough water and probably dont eat enough fiber. im hoping its just a fissure but scared because i read alot of blood could be a sign of a tear in your GI tract which is fatal. obviously i should go to the doctor, and i plan to if it doesnt clear up in a few days with more h2o and fiber. has anyone else experienced this and what was your diagnosis??

Hello, Cassy. First, if you are constipated, please be sure (1) to eat well: veggies, whole grains, things with fiber; (2) to exercise regularly, which helps keep your digestion moving; and (3) to go to the toilet when you feel the need. Don't make yourself wait; go promptly. Try not to strain hard while having a bowel movement; that can certainly cause hemorrhoids, and other disorders as well. You have to strain a little bit, of course; but not too hard.

Now about the blood and the soft skin thing on your anus: DO tell your parents and the doctor. They have an anus, just as you do; they know what problems can arise, just as you are now finding out; and the doctor is the one who can tell for sure what you have and what to do about it. Please don't wait.

oh i should have read this site 1 yr ago. i wish i listened to my mum. i sat on the stool, and read, and read, and read a book. so overall the poooping took about 20-30min. n voila i found the skin bobbing around today with the bleeding D: T_T

hi im a girl, age 14. i suspect i have hemmeroids, cos i had constipation like 2 days ago n really strained alot, then got this soft skin like thing outside the anus there. today it bled when i wipe it after pooping. i dont wish to tell my parents or doc if possible cos im.. a cowardD: is there anyway to stop the bleeding?

I bet that the boy's problem is some hemmeroids. I hate how they have hurt me too. I think they are worst when I have been eaten a lot of dairy in my menus. hotdogs also makes it worst than even too much dairy.

If it gets more painful, man up and tell your parents. It's probably just some butt grapes (hemorrhoids), but it's good if you take care of yourself and prevent worse trouble.

Remember, you might be embarrassed, but your parents love you and would never want you to be in health trouble.

i'm 16 years old, female, and as far as i know completely healthy, but for about the last week, every time i've been to the toilet i've found blood on the toilet paper, and if i look into the toilet there it toilet in the water, and it doesn't seem like it coming from the actual poo, theres quite a bit but not a big amount, and i've had a few small uncomfortable pains sometimes around my groin, but i don't know if that's unrelated as i've had it when i'm not on the toilet too. i don't want to tell my mother because it's embarassing to talk about it. how long should i wait, and find out if the bleeding carries on before i have to tell, or see a doctor, or is this just some random temporary thing that isn't anything serious? am i at a great risk? it's starting to worry me. thank you

Colby, something similar happened to me. The only differences was that the water around the logs was orange-brown, not pink. But also, it happened because my sewer pipe was clogged and a lot of my shit that was going into the septic came back in. So I don't know how old the shit I saw was or if it mixed with old shit.

Hey Cob Web (Colby dude), I think by the lack of response, your situation may be unique and werth to doctor. It sounds like blood could be soaked into your logs. Go to the doctors, man.

ok, i have had tis problem for about a month now, it started to worry me so i stopped and thought about things i may be eating that may cause this.i love to eat spicy things and hotsauce is my favorite topping. i have loved spicy things since i was young and its caused me to develop acid reflux. i have had severe heartburn lately which has caused me to believe that may be the problem. i tok some acid reducer the past few days and it seems to be doing the trick. i have seen no blood today at all. this may not solve everyones problem however if it even helps one other person it will be worth posting. i will continue to take the acid reducer and monitor what happens as a result. if it stops completely for the next week i will then stop taking it and see what happens. i will post another comment after i test my theory. i am not a doctor so my opinion should not be taken as fact. if you decide to try what i am doing i would love to see your posts to see if it helps anyone else.also, i talked to a friend about this and it has happened to him. he has stomach ulcers which he went to the doctor for and got medicine that made the bleeding stop.

early this morning I went to the bathroom , and it took forever and hurt really bad. when i flushed, i looked and it was red and partly bloody, Am i getting my period?

Anonymous Coward's Bowel Movements's picture

Some believe that a minimal blood present without further symptoms sort of is not enough to warrent too much concern. They reckon that it's probably only dangerous if other digestive symptoms surface, or else if the blood is kind of maroon or darker.

My situation is sort of on the fence. I have blood and very bad odor (sulfur/metallic smell) every so often with no other symptoms. But the blood is deep red, so it worries me. I dont want to go to the doctors but I kind of think I should.

Confuddled...'s picture

Ten days ago I had surgery on my leg (I know its "just a leg" but it was major surgery) post-op I was in hospital for 5 days, during the 5 days I was given blood thinning needles to prevent blood clotting. Once discharged from hospital, I've been confined to 2 weeks strict bed-rest at home, I'm only allowed to get up and go to the loo then straight back to bed.
Yesterday I went for a poop and when I wiped, the the toilet paper had heaps of blood on it, looking in the bowl, the water was red. Of course I freaked out but then I sat back and thought, "well I have been inactive for nearly 2 weeks now, I've been lying flat on my back with next to no movement, perhaps this explains it? Maybe a hemmoroid?"
I there anychance the blood thinning needles which I haven't had for 8 days now, could be responsible? My mum thinks this is unlikely as after 8 days it would have happened before now.
I'm not too stressed as the bood is bright and I'm not in any pain, if it sticks around I will see my GP. Just want opinions on the blood thinning meds, could this cause it, or is it more than likely my inactivity?

Thanks =)

I noticed something strange only since my crap didn't flush down. I looked at it before the flush and it looked regular but I didn't see that it didn't flush down becuase it was big. An hour later I come back and see that the water near the log looks pinkish and the log of crap itself was washed out, very light beige, almost whitish. This freeked me out. I'm worried that all my craps are like this and wonder if its normal and should I test them by not flushin for an hour to see if they look like this. Anybody, has this happend to your's?

I had blood in my poop. I was so worried about the poop that I went to the doctor. He looked at my anus and said it probably is hemmoroids, but keep looking at the poop to see how often it happens and come back in two weeks. If the poop has a lot more there would be tests.

Umm hi i'm 12 and i pretty much have symptoms of you all. But I have it a little different: When I poo, it hurts a little. When I wipe, There is a speck of blood about the size of your index fingers nail, but it isn't there when I wipe for a second time, I have slight stomach pains and Feel a little quesy for about 3 minutes then it goes away but I take a tums to be sure and that happens every other day I saw blood twice it was kinda light red but kinda bright there was nothing in the poo itself should I be worried? I think its like most of you said, a anal fissure because the poo hurts when its still *ahem* coming out... and I'm 12 My mom freaks out real bad if i just say 'ow my stomach hurts' so I don't want to freak her out with telling her this and I obviously can't go to the doctor because i'd have to tell her and my doctors a man! If its just like a cut in my *ahem* butt then how do i heal it? What can i do? Please help. I'm a girl, age 12 (and I know It's not 'that time of the month' because it is only on the toilet paper and it only happens when I poo. Thanx for any advice!!!!

Powerful, just get help now.feces

But I think for one, you may have a fat digestion disorder i.e. a high conc of bouyant fat in them. I have symptoms like yours, save the blood. The symptons get worst with eating a lot of dairy. My feces are pale gray with unimaginable odor -- I still smell them an hour later, even longer if I leave for a while and come back into the house. Also, they float so much that I can hardly get them to flush down. I never dare go at work
Sometimes I have to get then down via a bucket of water. And they stick to the toilet bowel to the extent that I have to do some scrub actions on the porcelin every crap.

Powerful: dark red blood is partly digested; black stools may have a lot of blood in them. I am not a physician, but I have read enough to know that these signs can possibly point to internal bleeding, such as a bleeding ulcer. I would not trust such a problem simply to go away. It may hold off for a few days now and then, but it's still lurking. I suggest a doctor visit soon.

anyhow ...i bit the bullet and had a colonoscopy..which was a piece of cake and didnt feel a thing..dont listen to anybody frightening you..i was put to sleep and when i woke i knew what was wrong with me.
coilitis. not saying this is whats wrong with anybody having blood on tissue.what im trying to say is ..bit the bullet .if i can do it anyone can..and i have a phobia about hospitals from when i was younger.

AC 8/9, have your doctor check you for pilonidal sinus; or you may have a lesser cyst. Either way, get it looked at.

AC 8/17, I'd guess you're back from your month abroad. If you're passing a lot of blood, regardless of how well you're feeling otherwise, see your doctor! It's possible, of course, that someone on this forum takes some of the same meds you do and has had similar symptoms; but I wouldn't bet on it. If you are feeling dizzy during or right after your b.m., that's not perfect, either. See the doc.

Hi. I just travelled overseas (NA to London) for a month-long engagement. I travel internationally a lot and have certainly experienced a variety of intestinal problems in the past. However, this is the first time I am experience this: LOTs of blood coming out with every bowel movement (since arriving). Nothing else, no pain, no irritation, maybe a slight dizziness afterwards, but, otherwise, fine - no blood any other time, nothing with the blood, stool seem fairly regular (although, admittedly have not inspected too closely). I am on oral contraceptive (have been for 10+ yrs), did take a lunesta on the overnight plane, take 6 vitamins each day, and an occasional pseudovent (prescription decongestant) and/or excedrin for bad sinus headaches. Any ideas what could be causing all this blood (it's a lot)?

Becka, more often than not, its just hemorrhoids, or an anal fissure ( a small tear near the hole, from dry, hard poop). Your question was answered multiple times in this and several other "blood in poop" threads here. However, it is a good idea to get it checked out, as bloody stool can indicate something much more severe.

Hi,

I thought I had a hemrohid (sp?) about a year and a half ago because I was very itchy and had a weird skin tag looking thing (blood on tp when I whiped too). I went to the dr. and it turns out that it was an anal fissure and it was an anal papilla that formed trying to "protect" the cut. Since then, it is difficult to keep clean (I do, but whiping hurts) and I think I'm making it worse. I know surgery (as per my dr's instructions) will remove the papilla and should help all of this, but I can't afford it at the moment. If anyone knows of anything I can put on these cuts to help the itching, please let me know. I currently use either bacetracin or A & D ointment, but it helps with the pain, not the itching.....

Too embarrassed, scared, don't want to see a doctor, but post it on the internet for the whole world to see, expecting us to solve your problem? Let me guess, your mom is your aunt, too. Go to the doctor, dumbass, or die.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough.

i'm quite scared.
i am 15 years old and each time i poop i have found blood.
sometimes its quite a lot but other times its just a little.
i'm worried because im too embarressed to get it checked out and i just want it sorted?
could it be just dietery problems, because i admit my diet is very bad, and if so, what can i do?
i dont want to see a doctor, just to verify.

I'm into my mid-60's, so I've pooped a lot of times in my life, and had blood in or on my stool a fair number of times (all it would take is twice a year and I'd be well over 100 times). I've found that, if I do nothing, the blood goes away in a couple of days most of the time. However--if I have blood visible on the turds, and it recurs for 3 days or more, it's time to see the doctor. He (or she) has seen lots of butts, and mine is no different from anyone else's--except that the blood might mean something is wrong with mine right now. Normally the doc just talks to me; once in a blue moon (!) he might actually have to look at it, or even examine it digitally, in which case he uses rubber gloves and some smooth gel that is totally painless. The examination is a whole lot less trouble than either continuing to worry about the pain or dealing with something serious that could develop from inaction about the problem.

Hello, Im 33 male and thought I have been seeing blood in my poop but was not sure, today when I took a dump (my second of the day) I saw blood on the toilet paper and in the toilet. I'm not sure what to do, I have not been having any pain and pooping has been easy. Not sure yet If I will be seeing the doctor as it may be a minor thing, I will monitor the situation for a few days.
