I am a heterosexual male who recently (9 weeks ago) had a very low risk incident with an unknown woman. I have never had any kind of anal sex. I have recently began seeing blood in my stool. Does anyone know of any STD that would cause this. I know it sounds obscure, and it's likely the fact that I have tremendous guilt over cheating on my wife, but everything that goes wrong with me physically, I attibuted to an STD. Any ideas?
If it's just blood when you wipe it's probably nothing to be concerned about though as monkeyflower said - if it keeps up see your doctor. Stress can cause hemorrhoids to flare up .
If when you look down in the toilet there is visible blood then I recommend making a doctor's appointment. Not because of a std risk but because of risks of other issues like infectious diseases in your water or a food you ate etc. Blood in your stools isn't normal and should always be followed up on with a doctor.
It is actually post-stool, so not in the stool. It is really topical in nature (when I wipe). I did see a dr. about it 2 months ago and he perscribed a topical steroid, which I did not get because the problem went away on its own. Since the last episode, I did fill the perscription.
I wouldn't doubt stress is related as I've just been punishing myself constantl lately.
doing some research on this... and at work with a constantly changing browser so as not to get caught! lol. Well, if you are tired and have some ache away from the rectum, might be cancer. Im getting a physical next week anyway, and just noticed this today. last time I saw was some years ago, and Im only 27... so not sure what is going on. anyone know? the blood is bright red, not at all in the stool. I do have a history of hernia, might it be related. I also have GURD, but I think that would not be related... maybe see a corner clinic tonight after work (I live in Thailand).
