bright blood in stool w/lower back pain

I'm 40 years old, female, good general health, no drink, no smoke, no alchohal, noticed bright blood in stool - lots, can see blood dripping, normal stools, no constipation, same time have lower back ache near tip of tailbone, very sore when I sit down to make a bowel movement.  If hemmorids, what would cause it, if polyps, what would cause that.  Taking no meds or anykind.
Feel no pain when making bowel movement, just pressure ache at tip of tailbone.

you should probably go to your doc.  it sounds like you may have a fissure or some serious hemmorhoids if the blood is dripping.  You may need some suppositories if its hemmorhiods.  My uncle had a fissure that he actually had to have cauterised (sp?) because it was so bad.  It started out not that bad, but it got bigger.  I wouldn't want you to go through want he did!!  Go see your doc so they can take a look around and decide whats best.  take care!
