Call Your Health Care Provider If
any evidence of GI bleeding occurs.
IF there is any change in the color of the stool. Don't rely on visual impressions; always test it or have it tested. Home kits can be purchased at the drugstore, or you can send a specimen to the doctor.
When there is blood in the stool. DO NOT take it lightly at any age. Make an appointment to see the doctor right away.
you're only twenty, i'd be willing to bet money on hemmorhoids, especially because the blood is coming from so low in the rectum (you know its coming from very low down when the blood is bright red and especially when it comes out after the bowel movement.
another possibility is proctitis. It could be ulcerative proctitis, which is a chronic disease, although its not all that serious when its limited to the rectum. Symptoms of this are bloody stools, pain, and feeling you had to go even when you don't have to. you may also only pass blood and mucus when you go. you may also just have a once in a lifetime proctitis, which can be cleared up with suppositories and creams. Proctitis is when the inside of your colon becomes ulcerated and inflammed, causing bleeding and some pain. It can be caused from antibiotics, a chronic ulcerative colitis, or i think it may sometimes happen for just about any reason. I hope i've helped!!
At 15 years old I had ficsures, small tears inside the rectum. I also had red blood during and after. I had surgery to repair and have had no problems since. But, with any blood you should not hesitate to call your Doctor.
there are multiple reasons why you could be having blood in your stool. You need to tell your physician as embarassing as it may be. Try not to get anxiety and assume the worse case scenario like I always do, but blood in stool is not normal and you should see your Dr. Immediately.
Go with the odds for your mental health, it's probably a swelled vein that can or can not be caused by child birth. swelled veins can rupture easily and bleed. Only your Dr. Can tell you though so make an appointment wether you have insurance or not. It won't cost that much.
