Sometimes staying: On your feet for a long time or doing certain exercises such as squatting can cause your hemorrhoids to swell up and may cause bleeding. Bending down should not make a difference.Dont just assume your bleeding is from your hemorrhoids specially if its not associated with any pain or discomfort.You need a anorectal exam and possibly colonoscopy to look for a proximal source. U need to see a GI doc.
