  • Most likely hemmaroids or fissures.

  • Anytime there's blood in your stool it's cause for concern. Not rush to the ER concern, unless there's accompanying symptoms. But it's definitely a call to your Dr in the morning worthy. Could just be the hemorrhoids, for that they have medications. But call your doc in the am, because bloody stools are not normal.

  • If it's bright red, it's probably from hemorrhoids. If a bleed came from higher up, it would probably be dark and tarry. I would also advise checking with the doctor, just in case.

  • My daughter is 20 months old and I still get a pinkish tinge when I have a bowel movement. It sounds like hemmroids to me and nothing to be worried about. As long as it's just a little when you wipe I wouldn't worry about calling the dr. but I would bring it up at your next appointment they may have some suggestions to help you out.

  • Mikesmom is correct from what I have been told. I had this issue when I was pregnant too. My doctor said that if it was a bright red then it was probably from hemmroids and if it was dark brown that meant old blood which meant it may have traveled through your system and could be bad news. I would still call the doctor's office if I were you. Good luck Momma, try not to stress too much about it.

  • When I went to the Dr for one of my prenatal visits a couple of months ago, I asked him how I would know if I had a hemroid. TMI warning - - Hemroids are located by the anal opening and when streched due to hard bowles can bust open and bleed. The blood from this will be on the outside of the stool (the stool itself should be lightbrown in color with strings of red on it and the water in the toilet showing most of the blood). If you are bleeding with our without hard stools then there is more of an alarm. If the stool is dark in color and the water in the toilet isn't bright then that it is also cause for alarm.

    Mine by just talking with my dr sounds more like a hemroid and dr said he wasn't going to pick on me to find out for sure.

    Good Luck!!
