If there is small amounts of bright red blood on toilet paper after wiping bottom do I need to be concerned? Have had hemorrhoids after child birth 9years ago, have reoccurred every now and then. Doctor can see hemorrhoid now and fissures.

In brief: May need testing

If you start fiber supplements (Metamucil or similar) and stool softeners and bowels are normal and not constipated and bleeding persists get it checked out (colonoscopy)
