blood when i wipe? tmi

is it possible that i couldve ripped from having a hard stool? when i wiped i noticed blood. It was more like diahrea once i got past the first part, which was hard so i dont think i need a stool softner. Does this sound like something i should have checked out or is it normal?

  • Is it bright red blood or dark red? Bright red means you probably tore something, yes a stool softner is a great idea. If the blood is dark red that's an indication of internal bleeding.

  • You probably have hemorrhoids, take stool softeners and use hemorrhoid suppositories if it doesn't go away see your dr.
