I'm a 33 year old female. Every time I wipe after a bowel movement, I notice black specks on the toilet paper. It's almost like black pepper.
The doctor did a fecal blot test for blood and it was negative. I also purchased an over the counter Blood test, little test strips you throw into the toilet bowl after a BM and all 4 were negative.
I'm also a couple months pregnant, so doctors won't do any extensive tests unless I see blood in my stools.
I was noticing this before I was pregnant, so I know they aren't related.
Just curious if anyone else notices this, and what is causing it?
Thanks in advance.
