Why when I poop I wipe my self I see light pink blood?

See a doctor: Blood in the stool is not normal. It suggests there may be a bleed somewhere in the GI tract but this could be anywhere from your mouth with blood you are swallowing, to your stomach due to an ulcer, to an internal or external hemorrhoid. A physician will be able to examine your stool, and take a complete history to determine which tests and necessary to determine the cause of bleeding. ...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

First things first: Hemorrhoids are generally easy to treat, but you need to make sure that its the right diagnosis. Other possibilities include colitis and rectal fissure. I would urge you to see a gastroenterologist or a general surgeon to get a definite diagnosis to help direct the proper therapy. Good luck! ...Read more

If you have hemorroids and you notice blood in your stool & see it when you wipe, how do you determine if its the hemorroids or something else?

If you have hemorroids and you notice blood in your stool & see it when you wipe, how do you determine if its the hemorroids or something else?

Look inside: First, hemorrhoids do not typically cause blood "in" the stool. Bright red blood on the toilet paper or a few drops into the toilet would be common but not in the stool. The main this we would want to rule out would be a tumor or cancer, which would be unusual but not rare in a 31 year old. Tumors also usually do not bleed much. There is no reliable home test to tell the difference. ...Read more

Possibly: Blood from the stomach and upper intestinal tract does produce black stool. Other causes of black stool include taking iron supplements and taking peptobismol. It's a simple test done in your physician's office to test a stool sample to see whether the black substance is from gi bleeding. ...Read more

What happens when you wipe and the tissue is pink but no blood in stool?

Monitor closely: I would recommend that you advise your primary physician of the situation. Since the tissue is pink it may represent a small amount of blood on the paper. This could come from a small tear or hemorrhoid or fissure. Monitor and keep your md informed. If needed he/she will refer you to the appropriate specialist if needed. ...Read more

BRBPR: This may just be just hemorrhoidal but bleeding from rectum (brbpr) may also indicate anal fissures, proctitis (due to infection, inflammatory bowel disease, radiation therapy, stercoral ulcers, rectal prolapse, trauma, etc.) or a bleeding source further upstream. Considerations: age, risk factors, current medication (aspirin, nsaids, anticoagulants can cause bleeding), trauma/anal penetration... ...Read more

Be checked...: Go to be checked and counseled so to assure what and how you may expect in future sex. But still remember: Anus is meant for defecation although personal urge and fantasy to pursue seeking unlimited sex pleasure has reined and even ruined some people's life. Of course, minimally, one needs to see you may have hemorrhoids. ...Read more

Stop rubbing: The blood represents irritation that can occur even with 3 ply toilet tissue, so less would be even more irritating. Thankfully, wipes were developed that can assist our need for perfectly clean butts that in the older times were more readily left dirty, giving rise to "skid marks". If the obsession is pathologic, expressed in other cleansing frenzies, a true neurosis (OCD) could be lurking. ...Read more

Topical cream: Commonly, one can get anal irritation & even bleeding from frequent "dry-wiping". This condition is called pruritus ani. Your clinician might prescribe Topical lubricants or medicated creams or ointments. Apparently, your clinician did not see any evidence for other things like pinworms, lichen planus, or contact or allergic dermatitis. Hope that helps. ...Read more

I wipe my anus real well after going toilet, sometimes see little specks of blood after, but now there's a little more blood with wiping, an I dying?

Minor anal bleeding: Dying?? Of course not! A little anal irritation with blood is very common and usually harmless. Perhaps you are wiping too hard -- go easy, or perhaps use moist towelettes or moisten toilet tissue with water. If bleeding continues, see a doctor -- maybe an anal fissure or hemorrhoids; these also are minor health problems. ...Read more

22y[M] Light red/pink blood in stool, should I go see my general doc? Was not painful.

Yes: Bleeding from any orifice needs to be checked out. It may be just hemorrhoids but even that can cause anemia.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Gallstones: Gallstones would not cause blood in stool. Most common cause of bright red blood per rectum with painless BM is internal hemorrhoids. Diverticulosis is another common cause as we get older. Best to get an exam and possible colonoscopy. Cancer is possible but other items much more likely. ...Read more

See remark: These medications slow the bladder contrctions, hence you don't go often. In the meantime they slow the bowels muscles. Bleeding upon wiping is not related with these medications. If the stool is hard, it may cause
bleeding.

If you have pain during sex and need those bladder medications, see a good urologist ...Read more

Possibly: If you haven't been using birth control it's possible you are pregnant. But there are a number of other reasons you might have some spotting or blood on wiping. Some of these include infection, hormonal problems, or even hemorrhoids. Check a pregnancy test if your period is late, or if you're worried. And see a gynecologist if you are pregnant, or irregular bleeding continues. ...Read more

I had a bowel movement, did not strain much but wiped and had lots of blood on paper with clots. Blood in toiled. Every time I have bowel movements see blood today. More bowel movements than normal? Can you tell me what is going on. I am on blood thinners.

Blood: Blood on the outside of stool or seen only on the paper suggests hemorrhoids. Bloodmixed with stool suggests a bleeding source higher in the bowel, which can in turn represent infection, inflammation, vascular malformation, and tumor among other causes.

If you are seeing blood on your toilet paper on a regular basis, or if you have blood mixed with stool, you should see a gastroenterologist. You will probably need a colonoscopy. ...Read more
