Could be multiple things. If it is bright red then it is likely from an anal fissure which is a small tear or cut along your anus or could even be internal hemorrhoids. But it could be something more concerning. Best thing to do is go to your physician for an appropriate physical exam.

Agree w dr. Rafai, there are many possible causes to include: internal or external hemorrhoids, fissure, fistula, cancer, or GI inflammatory or infectious conditions. Since it has happened before, it would be prudent to get it checked. Take care.
