Bright red blood in stool?
Today when i went to the bathroom i noticed bright red blood in the toilet. (i apologize for my graphic description, but i am really scared) Not a little bit either, the water afterward was really red, and when i wiped, there was a bunch on there too.
Let me tell you about myself and let me know if any of these can be factors.
I am a 21 year old female. I recently was put on phentramine by my doctor to help me with my weight struggle, and so i can get healthy so my husband and I can have a baby. I have been on the pills for 2 weeks now and have lost 9 pounds. I am never really hungry because the pills are an appetite supressant. I usually have very irregular bowel movements. Sometimes every other day, sometimes everyday, and sometimes i go 2 days. I dont eat fruits and vegetables because i am very picky (i know its stupid) My diet usually consists of very small proportions of chicken, rice, tunafish, hamburger, & pasta. (i cant think of everything) last week for breakfast i would have about 8oz. of, its called "Bolthouse Strawberry Banana" (its real fruit if that matters) everyday and i wouldnt be hungry until dinner. For the last couple days i’ve been drinking the XXX acai-blueberry-pomegranate vitamin water. I dont know what else you would need to know. But i am very worried, and i dont know if i should wait it out and see if it happens again, or call my doctor. I’ve read up on it and i know constipation could be a factor of hemmroids, but it could be something like Colon Cancer..
Please let me know what you think, thanks so much for your help.
UPDATED::: Earlier it was about 9:00 when that happened. I got home from work at about 5:00 and thought i needed to go to the bathroom again so i sat down (sorry for being graphic) pee’d a little and didn’t have a bowel movement. I wiped the back just in case and there was blood all over the toiletpaper. I looked in the toilet and there was about 2 tablespoons (kind of guessing) of bright red blood again in the water, half of it it didnt mix in with the water. It was like along the bottom, separated from the water. (its hard to explain) And the rest turned the water red.
