3 Bumps

Worried (TMI)

So I went to the bathroom 3 times today and all three times, I had really big stools and stringy red blood in them. Does anyone know what could this be?

  • Stringy? What do you mean by stringy? Could it have been mucous? The strings could be worms, but I don't know why they'd be present with blood. Was the blood black, dark red, or bright red? If the blood was bright red, you might have just gotten a fissure (a tear) because of the size of the stool. The stringy things could also be fibers from something you ate.

  • I'm sorry, you said stringy blood. I thought you said strings and blood. Not to be gross, but was the blood actually in it, our when you wipe?

  • I would call your doctor and ask them. It is probably bleeding from a hemorrhoid or a small rip in your rectum.

  • Yea, I'd call. If it was in it, it's probably something in your intestines or stomach. It could be a variety of things. Try not to worry, it could be something minor. They'll most likely going to want a stool sample. Best of luck, hope you're better soon!
