Life threatening: If your bleeding is due to your drinking it could be life threatening. Generally the source of bleeing can be readily determined. Do not hesitate to have it checked out asap. The good news though is that at your age it would unlikely be because of the toxic effects of alcohol. These effects usually require some time (years) to effect the liver, etc. ...Read more

Why do I poop bright red blood only after I drink? There is no blood in the actual poop, only when I wipe? Should I be worried?

Possibilities: There several possibilities for bright red blood after wiping, including hemorrhoids, anal fissure, and tears. Bleeding is not normal, and should be checked out by your doctor, since there are more serious disorders that can cause rectal bleeding. ...Read more

Possible: You may have hemorrhoids. Do you feel constipated? Any blood in your stool or when you wipe. If it is hemorrhoids most important thing is to ensure you don't get constipated and cause straining with bowel movements ...Read more

Anytime i drink alcohol, even just a glass of wine, i find blood in my poop the next day. Should i be concerned about this?

Anytime i drink alcohol, even just a glass of wine, i find blood in my poop the next day.  Should i be concerned about this?

Yes: You need to be concerned about stomach irritation by the alcohol which can cause bleeding. The irritation can be severe enough to lead to an ulcer(s). It may be a coincidence since only a lot of bleeding and a fast transit time through the colon can lead to bright red blood from the stomach to the stool. ...Read more

Only if a LOT: Of beer. Cirrhosis of the liver can manifest with varicose veins of both the esophagus (gullet) and of the veins around the rectum (hemorrhoids). Your doctor can do blood tests for your liver, and if there is concern, do various kinds of scans on liver to determine if this is the problem. If you are a 'social' drinker (2 or fewer drinks per day), then this is less likely. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
