March 13 was my last appetite suplement pill that i took. 3/14 & today i bleed when i poop (only poop 1 a day) can it be because i stopped taking it?

Get evaluated please: While your symptoms are not, it is normal to be concerned about your health and to worry why you feel bad. Whatever the cause of your distress, you're appropriately anxious about it and should seek help from a doctor.

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 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
