If you're sure it was from the anus, then let your parents know and you need to see the Dr. May be a hemorrhoid which is common, or could be something internally that needs evaluation. Get to the Dr. As soon as possible. Best wishes. ...Read more

Bright: Bright red blood (brb) coming from the rectum is an urgent situation that needs to be worked up immediately. Please see your doctor or visit an urgent care for evaluation.

The possible causes of brb from the rectum include:
hemorrhoids
inflammatory bowel disease (crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis)
intestinal infections
tumors
trauma
foreign body
vascular abnormaities (abnormal blood vessels)
anal/rectal fissures
bowel ischemia (when blood supply is cut off to part of the intestines)
colon polyps or colon cancer
diverticulosis

also anemia can result from bleeding; a simple test will determine if this is an issue for you

Good luck to you. ...Read more

Why did I bleed when I poop? It hurts when I first took the initial poop and I started to bleed bright red. I don't think I see blood stools in the poop and it was difficult to tell. After I finished and wipe the blood was thick and sort of dark.

There: There are a couple of possiblities with painful bright red blood with bowel movements. You could have actually developed a anal fissure (tear in the skin) of your anus from the difficult bm. It would look like a rip in the skin. The other possibility is a thrombosed (clotted) external hemorrhoid which would appear as a painful purplish lump on your anus.
Either way, a high fiber diet, using medicated wipes (tucks), and avoiding heavy lifting or straining would be beneficial. If pain is not improved, you probably should see your physician or a colorectal surgeon for further evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
