Hemorrhoid ?: If you did not have pain/ hard stool.....it can be hemorrhoid. Or it can be simply because of mucosal injury in your rectum.....which can occur with rectaln sex.

Red in Stool: most likely pieces of tomato. If you are really concerned lab test can determine if this is blood. Simple test done in most doctors offices.
