What is normal blood that comes out when you poop?

Often hemorrhoids: If blood is bright red (like a clot), it often is caused by hemorrhoids or straining to have a bowel movement. Small veins on the inside and near outside of rectum are thin walled and can start bleeding. You should seek a medical exam to determine cause or need for other kinds of testing to see if you have colon or rectal problems. Usually use of stool softeners and fiber in diet will help. ...Read more

Could be...: 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

Most likely....: ....You have hemorrhoids. These are swollen rectal blood vessels. This is a common problem as people age, if they're obese, have high blood pressure, or frequently strain with bowel movements. That said, you can be young and skinny and have normal BP and still get hemorrhoids. You still need to see a doctor, because there are other things that can do this, and some of them are dangerous. Be sure. ...Read more
