poop always makes me bleed

Elizabeth asks:

Lately, my poops have been much more painful than usual. I say usual because I've never had comfortable poops. They're usually hard and hard to get rid of. Additionally, I only go once every few days, if I'm lucky. But, even then, I have to force it out sometimes.

I don't have a hemorroid, nor am I constipated, but the past few poops have made my anus bleed. The bleeding doesn't last long, but it still bothers me since it is painful.

Any suggestions?

Dear Elizabeth,

Thanks for the question.

If you are only "going" every few days, poop is hard, you have to force it out, and sometimes your anus BLEEDS, then for GODS SAKE, you ARE constipated!!!!

Don't dispair, here's what to do to fix the situation:

- Drink at least 60 ounces of water a day.

- Eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day

- Wouldn't hurt to throw some Metamucil at your colon while you're at it.

If you are continuing to bleed after things normalize, see your doctor.

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

Got a question for her?

Dear Elizabeth:

Nurse Poo has given you some very good advice, and you should follow her advice to your benefit.

However, I think the good nurse left out one very critical element of treatment for your poor sore anus. Have someone who cares about you very much apply a liberal amount of petroleum jelly to your anus daily. The caregiver should pay attention to smearing the vaseline carefully around the entire circumference of your petulently puckered sphincter and very gently insert the lubricant just inside your anus far enough to get the inside of the rim in case there is a particularly sore area that needs attention.

I hope this information serves to help alleviate your suffering.

Peace in the Poopchute.

Can we say "anal fissure"?

anal fisssure HAHAHAHAHAHA!

just some info's picture

Bleeding from the back passage is something that you should always see your doctor about, even if you are convinced it is piles or an anal fissure. The reason you need to be checked is that bleeding from the back passage can be a symptom of bowel (colon or rectum) cancer. If you don

I started having a few shits that had blood come out of my ass.

As in when i shit it was about 50% blood & 50& shit.

This only recently has happened in the last 3 months. I think it's because of me using blow.

Iether that or me sitting on my computer chair for 15 hour days.

I have been bleeding out my ass for a short amount of time. I dont know what is happing it is like 50% blood and 50% shit. I dont know why this is happing if its because I have something or if its because I sit on a chair for hours and hours on end.

Well if anyone has any ideas please send me them.

My boyfriend has complained about the discoloration around my anus. When he first say it, he thought the discoloration was poo and he was quite turned off by it. But recently I heard on the internet about a procedure known as "sphincter bleaching" where a technician can actually use bleach to remove the discoloration that some women have around their anus. I was wondering if anyone here has had their sphincter bleached and if so, what was it like. My boyfriend would certainly appreciate my anus looking as if I had not just taken a horrendous dump. Also, I would like to know if there are other women here who naturally look as though they had just taken a monster-sized crap. It is humiliating when your boyfriend always thinks that you need to wipe your butt all the time.

NastyGirl and the others, this is disturbing and disgusting. Don't bleach your God damn anus! If your boyfriend/girlfriend has a problem with your anus then you need to find a new one! People in this country are so damn shallow!

One comment, I want to know about, My butt bleeds sometimes and ihave to keep wiping to stop the bleeding its bright red.

Wondering if i should go see a doctor.

Anonymous Coward's picture

if you get someone to lick your ass, it will stop it bleeding, but mke sure they get their toungue right up there.

butthead's picture

solution to ur problem...i think i know whats goin on...i bet that u all have one thing in common..ur lazy and u do little sports..or uv havent done any sports or activity for a while..the common anal bleeding usually happens if theres constipation..it happened to me..u should start to work out and be more active..especially abdomin work out..r a necessity..do as much as u can abdomin work out untill ur abs start burning..do that for 3 weeks at least..then ull see major differences in ur pooping! and stay active afterwards..

Nasty girl,
That is the natural color of the skin around the anus, and should be left alone. Dump your boyfriend, not poop!

i've been having that poo problem aswell for two days. it's freaking me out. i'm 14. my vagina itches real bad and when i poop, it feels a little stretched and a little bit of bright blood comes out. i've never had sex, but i feel like i'm infected with something. i'm scared to tell my mom, but she used to work at planned parenthood.
maybe its that don't excercise enough thing, i haven't really done much of anything for like a week. i run track and cross country, but i havent been practicing. i'm glad i'm not the only one with bloody pooping.

Anonymous Coward's picture

I have had some pain when i go poop in the past almost 5 months. sometimes there's blood in the toilet & it'll be a lot sometimes but I haven't had too much bleeding lately but I felt something weird like 2 months ago. I feel an extra piece of skin on my anus that's really little but I feel it & it feels kinda sharp. I have no clue what it is? I'm just hoping nothing serious is wrong with me. I really don't want to go to the doctor for this but I don't know what to do about sometimes bleeding & pain & this weird thing thst's grown on me??

AC#1- the girl with the itchy vagina. It is probably not related to your butt blood. Your butt blood is probably related to not drinking enough water while running.

The itchy vagina is related to many things. I doubt if you have an infection unless you are passing cottage cheese-type ooze. It is probably related to working out and getting a lot of sweat down there. A little vinegar in a bath will remedy the itch.

You probably have a hemorrhoid.

I always get into trouble when I wade into these PooNurse threads, but to quote the King James Bible, my "bowels are moved with compassion" when I see these poor sufferers with symptoms of serious medical problems seeking advice online.

Mind you, it is better to come here than to do nothing at all, but the greatest gift PR can give to most of you is the advice to GO SEE A DOCTOR!!! Other than menstruation, the human body NEVER discharges blood for normal reasons. This is especially true when the blood source is internal, as with many of the cases described above.

If you don't know what it is, or if it keeps on, you are simply playing Russian Roulette by ignoring it.

Guys and girls with the bleeding, beware! I had really bad anal bleeding start one day and hoped it would go away overnight. But my boyfriend made me go to hospital, and it's just as well he did, becuase that night I lost so much blood I collapsed repeatedly, and needed 8 blood transfusions in 24 hours. No dramatisation; this was scary stuff! The Nurses called my family at 3 am becuase they didn't think I would make it. So don't leave it until it's too late, and don't worry about being embarrassed, because the doctor has seen it all before!

Shelley, I'll bet you didn't sit around all night asking for medical advice online, did you?

Worried's picture

I don't have trouble pooping but the last couple times there has been blood after. The first time was only a little almost not noticable, but as time progresses so does the volume of blood, too much lately. It appears while and after and is bright red. I am wondering if this is bad or will go away.

I just wanted to comment on anonymous coward and the little growth they feel in their anus. I had the same thing and I found out it was an std...hpv to be exact. so please see a doctor right away. and pray about it.....God answers prayers and regrets.

I had a rectal fissure once (actually a few times). Yeeouch! I went to see a doctor about it and he diagnosed a fissure but when I went in the second time for the same thing he had me referred to a specialist for a colonoscopy, just to make sure it wasn't something more serious. There was a T.V. screen and when I looked up I could see the inside of my colon, which was all pink and fleshy since I'd taken an enema twice to flush it out. By the end of it I was pooping nothing but clear water, but it was very salty (the enema used some form of salt), and oh did the salt sting! If you ever get a chance to see the inside of your own colon, do it, it's pretty cool looking!

Anyways, in the end they found nothing wrong and I started eating more fiber and retraining myself not to push so hard, and I haven't had a fissure since. In fact in the last two years I've never even been constipated or had a day where I didn't crap. It's great what a big ol' bowl of oatmeal every morning for breaksfast can do for you. I'd recommend starting off slow though since it will take your body some time to adjust and you might get diarrhea a few times at first.

Frosty my friend, have a glass (or tablet, or wafer... they come in so many forms these days) of Metamucil in the morning. If that doesn't work, have one in the morning, then one at night.

Stay away from laxatives. They are not good to use frequently, and your body can and will become addicted to them if you use them too much.

Hi. My Mom passed away 12 years ago. They thought it was cancer of the liver. After she died we found out she'd been bleeding from her butt for the previous 10 years and had been too embarrassed to say anything to anybody. As fast as she went, it was one month from the time she complained of being tired to the day she died, they believe it was cancer of the colon that took her. Cancer of the liver was what happened when the cancer of the colon went out of control. Please, please go get a colonoscopy or a sigmoidoptomy. Please, please see your doctor. So, maybe all they're going to say is, "Yes, have some Metamucil every day and drink lots of water", but you need to hear it from them. Nobody is going to laugh. Least of all me. My mother might have lived longer.

So, my friend Haley and I have one question on our mind. You know those kinds of poops where they hurt SOO bad and you see the poop in the toliet and what not, but when you wipe there is nothing there? What is that all about? Is it something we eat or ?? I've tried googling it, but I got this website and couldn't find the answer among all the poopyness. i admire you for this site by the way. your a super hero. informing the town's people about poo. righteous.

To all:

The majority of all your symptoms point to hemmoroids. You will bleed bright red blood sometimes heavy sometimes a spot. Then the itchiness is also a symptom of having them. Try some Preparation H and see if this helps. If it continues pretty regularly, then you need to go to your physician and let them do their thing. Hope this helps :)

blood on tp's picture

okay, sometimes when i poop my anus is a little bit itchy and there is like tiny dots of bright red blood on the toilet paper. i am a bodybuilder and i drink about 1-2 gallons of water a day, eat about 6 meals a day oats, fruits, veggies, meats. no refined sugars or wheat or dairy products. i usually shit 4-8 times a day on average an they are usually good for the most part. what might the itching/bleeding be? candida or yeast? its about all i can come up with...

Someone please help me I am only 11 and dont want to die my butt does hurt when I poop like something is scratching against it I went poop today and when I wiped I saw a bright red color. I got really scared I wanted to tell my mom but shes not home. I told her about my but hurtingness before but she said I need to poop more often I hope shes right! I was so curious and since Im a smart 11 year old i decided to look it up and I've heard a lot of scary stories about it like hemroids and cancer someone tell me the truth please I'm so scared of dying!

Anonymous Coward's picture

^ Don't worry too much. You're only 11 years old. As long as you tell your mom about any health problems and you guys get them checked out when necessary, you should be ok. Try adding fruits and vegetables to your diet. Also, you should be sure to drink plenty of water daily and poop more like your mom told you. If you're a girl, maybe it's something else that you should ask your mom about.
