Hi, for nearly over a year now I typically have constant constipation.
It really has become 2nd nature, when ever I use the bathroom, I typically will have large stools. Sometimes, they are small but hurt just as much.
I typically always have bright red blood on the toliet paper when I wipe.

What kind of health issues can this cause? and what may be the issue?

I thought hemroids? But I never ich

My g/f is concerned and wants me to seek medical attention. I'm a college student, living on my own and money is an issue.

I just purchased some fiber supplements, and changing my diet a little to increase my fiber intake.

Should I wait and see if it is a fiber issue? or shall i seek medical attention right away?

"Bright red blood on the toliet paper when wipe" indicates that blood comes from a place near the anal oppening. Blood could origin from a hemorrhoid or an anal fisure. Too hard stool often provokes bleeding because mecanicaly iritates the hemorrhoid or the anal fisure. Itching can be present if there is an inflammation.

Hemorrhoids or fisures can be easily diagnosed with a digital rectal examination.

You should consult your GP.

Hi, I had that problem too
Hi, I am so glad I can help you because I went through the same things. Ever since I was a young boy I had chronic constipation. I would sometimes even bleed beacuse the stools were so big. I thought it was just the way I eliminated and was too shamed to talk to any one about it untill I met my friend who also happened to be a herbal specialist. Anyway, I got comfortable enough with him to share what was going on in hopes of a solution. He told me that my bowel movements were too infrequent, and my digestion wasn't working as fast as it should in combination with my diet which contained pizza and other foods with cheese. He gave me this stuff called ACOG Herbal Master Body & Colon Cleanse. At first I thought it was just going to make me go rush to the toilet for a couple days but what it actually did was eliminated my constipation all together. It did not rush me to the bathroom. I am so greatful for it because it made using the bathroom feel normal, natural, and easy. It really helped me out alot because it also aided my digestion, my metabolism, it got rid of parasites, and most of all it softened my stools making them easier to pass and more frequent. On top of that I noticed an increase in my energy. Now I don't worry about a thing when I have to go beacause I know it's smooth and quick. Im up in like 5 minutes. It doesn't have any harsh laxatives in it so I only go when I have to and not when Im forced to. Now I just live my life and take ACOG once every 2 months and I feel great. I either get mine online at their website or at Dominicks or GNC here in Chicago. Im so glad I could pass this on to somebody else, knowing that this will really help solve the problem.

Take Care,

Constipation, pain, hemroids and bleeding
My case is different. I spent last night going to the bathroom but I had a lot of stomach pain, then liquid came out like the runs but my stomach still hurt. This happens to me and I also have hemroids so this morning when I woiuld drink coffee my stomach hurt and I tried to go to the bathroom but nothing happened but there was blood on the toilet paper. It doesn't hurt but my stomach hasn't felt good all day. What can I do about this? I don't notice really large stools and sometimes I go to the bathroom easily but I lost a lot of sleep because my stomach really hurt. Can someone help me?
