When I make bm it hurts there is blood soft stool feels like cuts a colposcopy was done no problem with hemorrhoid calling doc monday should go to er?

Not needed: Don't worry - doesn't sound serious.
Hemorrhoids -swollen anal veins - can bleed and hurt.
Small cuts - anal fissures - can both hurt with bm's and bleed.
Neither is dangerous or needs a trip to an er.
However, do see a doctor for an anal exam. Warm baths with epsom salts and creams like a;d or anusol help. Both conditions are easily treated. No need for an er.
Do call your md..
