Bloody stool: Red blood in stool probably from hemorrhoids, polyps, ulcer, infection, inflammation, diverticulosis, blood vessel malformation and cancer etc, having said all these this most probably from hemorrhoids. The colposcopy was within the last year would have given you some information.,

Bloody stool: You need to see your doctor or gastroentrologist right away, it could be an infection, hemorrhoids, polyps, analysis fissur & so on, if you can't see a doctor soon go to ER. Good luck.
