No it is not normal...... If it was bright red and when you wipe I would have said that is normal when you have constipation and you probably got a tear in your anus.

But dark blood in your poop can indicate ulcers as well as many other problems. Sorry to scare but you need to go and see your doctor.

Sometimes it is normal and sometimes it is not. As the poster said before you need to make your doctor aware of this. Your doctor will check you for hemroids and etc. Sometimes if you are constipated their are little vessles like that tear and etc and that can cause the bleeding they are very sensitive. Good luck to you and keep us posted

There are tiny little vessles and one probally did tear. But I would still make your doctor aware of it. They might change something that you are eating or add something.. Good luck hun and just make sure that you let them know. And if you where constipated which in my thoughts I think you where then it would be normal..

If the blood is bright red, then it could be numerous things. Ie: pollups on your rectum, hemmeroids, or a tear in your rectum.

If the blood is dark red, then it has had time to pass through the intestines and colon. This is a more serious situation. If your stool had a dark black color to it, this indicates internal hemmorage somewhere.

Now if you wipe and there's little tiny clots and it hurts like all hell to poop, then you more than likely have a tear in your rectum.

After I had my baby, I would say when she was about a month old, I started having the same problem. But when I would wipe, there would be bright red blood clots and my poop was covered in blood clots ((tmi, I know, but relevent))

I immedietly called my ob/gyn and let him know. Well well I went in for my post pardom check up they did a pap and he opened my anus just to check for internal hemmoroids. He could see nothing that indicated internal hemmeroids but he did refer me to a general surgeon.

I waited about a week and learned that I couldn't push my poop. I had to let it literally come out on it's own. Sort of like when your baby's head is born and you have to deliver the shoulders and they make you breathe to distract you from pushing.

I haven't had any bleeding since i've paced my pooping! Hahaha...But you should still go to your .Dr. I've started a regimine of "benefiber" and lots of fiberous foods which has helped a little.

I still need to go see the general surgeon, but i'm terrified because I know they're gonna want to 'scope' me and it's an exit only if ya know what i'm sayin!! Hahaha...But this is no laughing matter, i'm just trying to lighten up the mood!!

Let us know what your doctor says about the situation!!

I'm no .Dr, so I really can't say. Ya know?

You'd have to ask your .Dr what he/she thinks about the situation.

If it's normal coloring, how does it indicate blood in any way? You might have just eaten something that had a reaction to your poop.

Re:
Do you have any pain anywhere. It happened to me once and I found out I had a bladder infection. Or you could have hemorrhoid.

Definitely ask your doctor!
Blood coming out can be bad, I had that before, not dark though, and I was already seeing a gi doctor, he just had me do this culture thing at home and then I mailed it back to get the results. It luckily came back with nothing so he thought it probably was just a tear. I had a cousin that had blood and it ended up being ibd, he got blood even before pain.
I know it can be super embarrassing to ask, but just think that they talk to people with way grosser things than that! It is there job and if they cared they wouldn't be doing it.

Hemoroids are very common during pregnancy and this sounds like you may have one inside you. They can get irritated when you push hard and when your stool is hard.

I agree with what everyone else said, there is no harm mentioning this to your doctor.

Good luck!

I have the same thing. Though my poop is regular color, it has little blood vessels in it. so maybe i popped a vessel on the way out or something. Ill ask my doctor the next time i go in.
