**TMI** Red Blood in Stool DO NOT OPEN IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A NICE ANSWER!! adult content

After already having 1 normal bowel movement today, I just went to the bathroom again after getting a very sharp uncomfortable pain in my stomach. **TMI** The stool didn't even look like stool. It looked like nothing but dark maroon colored blood mixed with fresh red blood. When I wiped there was nothing but blood. It actually looked like I was on my period. I've also been having some ovary pains and on and off sharp shooting stomach pain. Should i be freaked out?? Should i go to the er??

  • Red blood is good, if there is going to be blood I would rather it be red. That means it is happening near the exit. I still advise you to go to a doctor and applaud you for not posting a picture.

    An ER may be your only option at this hour. Keep us posted.

  • YES. You should be very freaked out.

    Pain plus bleeding equals ER.

    No questioning. No more cafemom unless you are on a mobile device at the hospital.

  • Call the on call doctor at your doctor's office/clinic and see what they say. Then go in if they want you to and keep a stool sample if you can.
