Is it safe to have anal sex with internal hemorrhoids? There is only slight bleeding during bowel movements so is it safe or no?

In brief: Not recommended

You should be symptom free (no pain or bleeding) ideally before anal sex.
If you have internal hemorrhoids, i would recommend against anal intercourse as this can exacerbate the issue . If they are in fact internal hemorrhoids, you can consult a surgeon for banding to resolve the issue. Meanwhile, to reduce flares, also avoid straining and keep stools soft.
