"i had a bad stomach pain yesterday now I have almost black stool, popto bismol can cause this(which I have taken) no other problems have come up" ?

"i had a bad stomach pain yesterday now I have almost black stool, popto bismol can cause this(which I have taken) no other problems have come up"

Look into the cause for your stomach upset - you may need more than just pepto. ...Read more

It is definitely not a cause of dysfunctional bleeding though, so you "may" have more than one condition going on. You need to work with your doctor to take the diagnosis another step. Good wishes. ...Read more
