Blood in stool adult content

A few weeks ago I noticed blood after I used the bathroom. It just happened that one time. I noticed it again this morning. I had diarrhea soon after both times but without blood. Is this normal to happen occasionally or should I see a doctor at the first sign of any blood in stool?

  • hemmorhoids don't have to be painful. If they are large they are painful. Are you straining when you poo?

  • What color? light red or dark red?
    Mixed in or on the stool?
    Any anal pain? Abdominal pain?

  • You may have hemoroids. My son had bright blood and it's a sign of polyps, we just call schedule surgery & get em taken out.

  • most likely it's hemorrhoids. i wouldn't worry unless it happens everytime,or if you feel something protruding from your anus

  • Bright red, normal blood color. It came out with it, looked like a period (tmi again sorry) and no pain anywhere.

  • you might wanna have it checked out if it happens any more- just to be safe.
    My husband found out after a year of this kind of thing that he has ulcerative colitis. He's been on meds for it now for about 8 years

  • It's not internal bleeding. That presents as black.
