    i know some similar posts have been made before but i wanted to know if anyone had had similar symptoms before:

    For the last few months i havent been going to the toilet (no2) very often and for the last few times ive been to the toilet there has been a little bit of blood on the paper. i have started eating better food and yoghurt bifidus thingies and i have been going more often. however every so often when it is slightly harder to go ive had the blood spots. i know i should see a doctor but some suggesions on the internet have shown that at first you can try changing diet, more water, exercise etc. i know aboutthe things it cud be eg haemorroids but it doesnt feel bad so cud it just be a slight split where i have had trouble going?

    anyone had simlar problem?

    Please, see your doctor. These symptoms don't sound good.

    Go to the doc and get it checked. They see this kind of thing all the time so neither you or they will be embarassed. Bleeding out of the bottom can be a sign of something bad so I would get it checked ASAP.

    I've had similar problems in the past briefly. It helps to temporarily remove all junk food and red meat from your diet and replace it with lots of fibre. All-Bran for breakfast!

    It does sound a lot like hemorrhoids to me. They can come from straining to pass stool, often if your diet doesn't contain enough fibre you can get them. If the blood is bright red in color that is a common symptom as well. They aren't always itchy or painful apparently so don't rule it out just because it's not really that uncomfortable.

    As others have said, it is only sensible to go to a doctor as it could be a sign of more serious problems. Don't be embarrassed, apparently at least 50% of the population have had similar problems. A doc is a professional and has seen it all before.

    Your colon wall could be damaged. Usually if it's only a little bit of blood it can fix itself providing you eat enough fibre (both soluable and insoluble) and plenty of water.

    Don't worry about it, it sounds like typical constipation, and not severe from the sound of it. I've got a family member that suffers from it quite badly, especially now that the climates quite dry. Just get more exercise, eat more fibre, fruit and veg, drink more water. Cut out all the junk food and you should be fine. There are also lots of gentle laxative you can get from supermarkets that you can use temporarily, that should help.

    Your toilet is clearly possessed and is hemorrhaging the blood of the damned. Please contact your local priest.

    The chances are it's something trivial (haemorrhoids, anal fissure etc etc), however, I would seriously recommend you see your GP.
