Blood in stool

Posted , 5 users are following.

Since last 2 days I am noticing blood in my stool. Although there is no such pain in passing the stool and I also donot have any medical conditions. Can you suggest what should I do and how to treat it??

    Are you constipated and straining for a bowel movement or having diarrhoea?  Both can cause haemorrhoids and constipation can cause fissures.  The blood in this case tends to be bright red.  Are you sure it is blood?  Have you been eating anything that is red such as red peppers or red apples which may not be absorbing properly?

    However, you should go to your doctor to get this checked!

      No I am not constipated nor having diarrhoea. Yes its bright red in color or you can say slightly maroonish. It’s actually mixed with the stool. I am not observing dripping blood. 

      I am taking beetroot in my diet.

      Avoid the beetroot to see if your stoos return to normal.  It may not have been absorbing properly.

    I would go get this checked out, you stated you were not having bowel issues, yet something is happening because you are seeing blood, could be colon of luck to you.
