Bright Red Blood After Bowel Movement
What could bright red blood after a bowel movement be? This happens once every few months. I have had history of hemmroids
The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more
A lot of bright red blood in toilet after bowel movement stomach cramping not on period nausea and dizziness nothing helping
You need: To have this evaluated ASAP! Bright red blood can be a symptom of a number of conditions benign and more serious!!! Dizzyness may mean that the bleeding itself is becoming symptomatic. Get this checked out ER or WALK IN UNIT is appropriate! Good Luck/Hope this helps! Dr Z
Maybe: If you have constipation and straining to have a bowel movements, you could have hemorrhoids or anal fissure. Need to drink more liquids, eat more high fiber foods, add extra fiber in the diet like metamucil, avoid low fiber junk food. See a doctor for an examination to be sure the bleeding is not from something more serious.
38 f. Bowel movement with bright red blood. Seemed like it was from a hemmoroid. My area hurt all day yesterday. What should I do?
Don't worry!: Your symptoms are quite likely from a small irritated hemorrhoid or perhaps an anal fissure, both of which should respond to soothing cream/suppositories, sitz baths and stool softeners to not further irritate the area. If it persists, worsens, get help and see your doc for a quick peek, reassurance and better options.See 1 more doctor answer
I am having bright red blood in the toilet after a bowel movement. Do I need to go to the e r? I feel like I am going but when done there's nothing but bright red blood in the water and after wiping
Yes.: Yes. You need to see a doctor for this right away. It may be something as simple as hemorrhoids, but it could also be much more serious. Bleeding like you've described could represent infection, inflammation, a vascular malformation, or a tumor. Though it often stops on its own, bleeding from the bowel can sometimes become very severe and can even be life threatening. If it does stop, that does not mean that the underlying problem is gone, so you should see a doctor even if this goes away by itself.
I've been having blood on the toilet paper for 3 days after I have a bowel movement. It's bright red. What are some possible causes? I'm scared
Blood on paper: You have a source of blood loss, most commonly from hemorrhoids (h). You should be seen by a gastroenterologist to make sure you have h and not something else. If there are no h you will likely need a colonoscopy to rule out lesions in your colon. Good luck.See 2 more doctor answers

Hello, I am 25 years old, during bowel movement there are streaks of bright red blood, stools are sometimes large and at times it feels like a glass..
On several different occasions when I've only pee'd, I've had bright red blood come from my rear? No bowel movement for hours prior to this occurrence
Hemorrhoids: The simple act of sitting on the toilet exerts pelvic pressure which may cause hemorrhoids to bleed. Because they are inside and not outside, you may not feel them nor know that they are in there. This is probably no big deal, but one good goal for you would be to eat a high fiber diet or use rectal suppositories. The more roughage and support you can put in there, the better your rectal health.
Sometimes when I wipe after a bowel movement a light colored mucus is present. It stopped, I was constipated and now I am seeing bright red blood when?
Hemorrhoids vs.?: A small amount of mucus (? a teaspoon) after a bowel movement can be considered normal. Typically, as you describe, it wouldn't be after every BM. Bright red blood when wiping is typically from the anus and due to hemorrhoids (dilated veins) related to straining to pass stool. OK to watch for a week or two, but if persists, contact Doc. Persistent blood and mucus needs further evaluation.
Streak of bright red blood on stool. Some pain after bowel movement. What could cause this? Worried about cancer.
Anal fissure: What you described is consistent with anal fissure. It is a linear ulcer in the anal canal. Try taking a laxative so that your stool is soft preferably, very soft. You may try a topical, over the counter preparation for pain. If after a couple of weeks of soft stools, the symptoms persist, please consult your doctor.See 2 more doctor answers
