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
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!

Needs evaluation: Blood in stool, regardless of age of the sufferer, is never normal. As such, and although the cause is likely easily explained (e.g. Hemorrhoids, anal fissure), it must be evaluated so serious pathology is not missed or diagnosis delayed. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. 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. ...Read more

I have had bright red blood from the vaginal area after a bowel movement, hysterectomy 8 years ago, only a few swipes of blood, happened 6x in 3 weeks?
Possible reasons: To spot after a bm 8 years after a hysterectomy include - a sore in the vagina, hemorrhoids, a growth on the urethra. If the cervix was left at the time of the hysterectomy then a polyp on the cervix could cause spotting. The best way to know is to get an exam from your doctor. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

I had bright red blood on my toilet paper and in the toilet after a bowel movement. I have had problems with hemorrhoids. Is it hemorrhoids?
Probably: This would be the most common cause of bright red rectal bleeding in a young adult with a history of hemorrhoid problems, especially if the blood is on the TP or free in the toilet bowel and not mixed with normal appearing stool. Constipation is contributory. If it persists, you should be evaluated to be sure there is not another more serious cause. ...Read more

I'm 57 and I had a colonoscopy at age 50 and it was normal. I also was told by doctors that I have internal hemroids. For about a week now I've notice once in a while bright red blood on tolit paper and in the tolit after bowel movement. I've been under
Unless you had: A hemorrhoidectomy, everyone has hemorrhoids. They are normal vascular cushions. Only when they are abused from diarrhea or constipation or some other trauma can they cause problems. Even with a negative scoping 7 yrs ago, new onset bleeding needs evaluation and probably a repeat colonoscopy. Don't ignore this. ...Read more
Bright red blood in my stool I had a irritation about a week ago with a forced bowl movement and with that came some blood...Now with each bowel movement, it has not stopped. I look in the toilet and see blood. Very bright and fresh looking...Should I be
Blood in the stool, on the toilet paper, or in the toilet after a bowel movement are all reasons to see a doctor. You may be dealing with internal and/or external hemorrhoids, a rectal fissure (tear in the rectum). This seems more likely since this all started after a forced bowel movement.
Depending on your history, the examination, and diagnostic testing results (i.e. Occult blood stool test), your doctor may want to order a test called a colonoscopy (procedure where a camera is used to visualize your colon). Lastly with bleeding comes anemia, your doctor should also screen you for this.
All the best. ...Read more

I had a little bit of a painful bowel movement and I saw bright red blood in stool. I feel weird a little now. Any advice?
Probably a fissure: A painful stool with a little blood in a young patient is most often an anal fissure. That is a small tear in the lining of the anal skin from passing a large hard stool. The majority of these will heal with keeping the stools consistently soft for a few weeks. Use a fiber supplement regularly for a month or so and drink plenty of water. See your dr if pain or bleeding persist. ...Read more
