Hello, Can't: Accurately state cause of blood with information available. One cause of rectal bleeding is an anal fissure. However, a fissure causes usually severe pain with a bm ; you didn't mention pain (so doubt that). Your fingernails could cause trauma to delicate rectal tissue - so that might be a reason. If stool was stuck - it could be hard, dry and bulking - that can abraide tissues ; cause bleeding. ...Read more

When I went to the toilet It was hard to push out and it got a stuck also when I wiped there was blood and there was blood on my stools too?

Prob hemorrhoids: If you're not having any pain in your anus, it probably was a hemorrhoid that got irritated when you strained to have your bowel movement. An anal fissure can also bleed but hurts (like a paper cut down there!)
If you've had hard stool, you should increase your fiber and water intake to keep your stools softer. A laxative may help if you don't get relief with the increased dietary fiber. ...Read more
