Hi everyone
I am currently 21 and I am very worried about the situation that I am. I haven't been to a doctor yet and need some advice. For the past week and a half everytime I used the bathroom to take a dump, i have been bleeding. Sometimes I would bleed a lot others not so much, but it has been consistent. I took a photo of it once or twice.
Even when I wake up I wipe to see if theres blood and there still is.

Thank you in advance.

hello ans welcome

your concern is appreciated

it seems to be hemorrhoids because its associated with fresh painless bleeding it looks like to be grade one as there is no history of something coming out of the anus , another condition associated with bleeding PR is anal fissure but defecation is very painful with that. rectal polyp can also lead to to bleeding, so digital rectal examination and proctoscopic examination should be done to assess the problem. there is usually prolonged history of constipation for which high fiber diet should be taken so that straining at defecation should be avoided thus bleeding. for anal fissure GTN jelly and xylocain jelly is advised to heal the wound. surgery is ultimate option for both if medications dont help.

hope it helps

Rectal bleeding is referred to medically as hematochezia. This refers to the passing of blood from the anus, usually along with stools or blood clots. Although the bleeding may originate in the rectum it could also be traced to other regions in the gastrointestinal tract.
