Today I woke up and had a hard time with my bowel movement and I noticed an oblong hard object of yellowish color in my stool it looks like a hard pill. There were a lot of them broken in 1/2 pieces. It hurts when I go and it is leaving cuts as it passes threw. There is some bleeding as a result. I kept a sample. Please help, what could this be?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the discomfort during bowel movement and the abnormal object in stool that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. You should visit your doctor/gastroenterologist at the earliest for thorough evaluation to look for the underlying cause and get a stool examination done and get started on treatment as appropriate (based on evaluation results) to help you control the symptoms. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gastroenterologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
