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

Worried, 
Would blood from higher up in the GI Tract show up as just little bits of black when I wipe? Stool its self is normal in shape and color

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
