Why do I bleed when I poo?

After I go number 2, I bleed quite heavily for a few minutes. It's in the toilet and on the paper when I wipe. It's quite a bit, but it stops. It happened last week 3 times, and then it stopped, then it happened twice today.

  • Probably hemorrhoids...if it continues or gets worse I would see your MD.

  • an important question is where is the blood coming from?? Secondly, you need to talk to your dr asap. It could just be blood from maybe a small tear in your rectum...or it could be blood in your stool coming from your intestines. Many things can cause this and some can be minor while others are serious. I wouldnt take it lightly since its lasted for 3 weeks now. I would make a drs appt right away and if capable . take a clear picture of the blood the next time it happens so your dr can reference something.
