  • Yes they can cause it to some degree. What color blood is it? Dark or bright red?

  • Okay, if you know you have hemorrhoids then that would be my first guess. As long as your not having stomach pain or any other "symptoms" I would not take it as an emergency. If you feel that it is a large amount of blood then I would go see your MD first thing tomorrow.

  • Not all hemmroids are on the outside...You can have them inside too and that would make a small amount of bright red blood. If its only when you have a bowel movement and not just leaking out, thats probably what it is. Take a stool softner it will help!

  • You should seek immediate medical attention.  Bloody stools are NOT a good thing.
