    Hi Pixie,

    It could be Piles (Haemorrhoids), this is more then likely if you suffer from constipation. Your doctor can tell you by doing a simple test, it may sound bad but it isn't they put a glove on and lube and check for piles in your rectum.

    Yes haemorroids is very likely, the bright red blood is almost comfirmation. If blood is darker it tends to originate from further up the intestine. You should be able to feel them and it's very easy to shrink them with a cream you can buy over the counter. A common symptom is itching at the anus, if you have that them it more or less confirms the diagnosis. Good luck, half the adult population gets them at some time and they do tend to reoccur especially if you are inclined to get constipated or have to strain when going to the toilet. Check you have enough fibre in your diet to help you go regularly if necessary.

    Hi. I have just experienced this too a few days ago. Blood dripped after i poo. Really scared me after i searched in google. I thought of my life is at end. I just could not believe bcoz i dont drink nor smoke. And i drink everyday a lot of water. I prayed to God healing bcoz i am afraid. But, I am relieved I am not alone with this situation. And that it could not be a really serious case. Thank you God.
