Please, more info: Thank you for your question. Blood can be irritating to the gastrointestinal tract, but generally is not a cause of inflammation. More information will help us provide a more pertinent answer: what are the circumstances that lead to your question? We look forward to your answer.

It does not: Agree with Dr. P Blood per se does not cause inflammation.
Have a healthy diet, exercise, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, if you do,. Wish you good health!
