  • oh yeah i would seriously go to the doctor over that one, but you might want to check what you ate because there are alot of foods that sometimes don't break down in stool that can actually look like blood clots, strawberries, and diffrent types of fruits. Think back on what you ate and if that's not it then deffinately go to the doctors.

  • Any time you notice blood in your stool, you need to go to the doctor, unless you know you have hemmorhoids, but it doesnt sound like that to me. You really need to call your doc in the am, they can do a quick test to test for some blood and then they can go from there

  • Oh yeah another thing that can look like blood clots is if you ate jello, just went to the bathroom myself and i though something was wrong and then i remembered i ate strawberry flavored jello, and yeah that kinda made my poo look like red blood clots. Hope this helped.

  • Thanks so much for the advice ladies. I will deffinetely call the doctor in the morning! As for what Bluesdawq02, I haven't eaten anything that would cause it to look like that.
