In brief: Yes

Hemorhhoids can ceratainly cause bleeding during defecation.
But many other things cause rectal bleeding, as well. Some are serious (like colorectal/anal cancer) and benefit from early diagnosis. Others, like anal fissure, are not so serious, but benefit from treatment. See your doctor - don't self diagnose!
