at the beginning of this month (March 05) i noticed a good amount of blood in the toilet after bowel movements. it's happened every time i've gone since then. nothing feels different when i go, everything else is perfectly normal, except for this blood. from reading other threads on this page it sounds like it could be hemmeroids. if that be the case, what are some things i can do to prevent it from happening again? it's been about a week now since it started and i wanted to see what i should do. and how i would go about going to a doc about it. i HATE going to the doctor for things of this nature. so any help would be great from anybody! thanks a lot.
Need some embarrasing information!
It sounds like internal hemorrhoids... but it could be something more. To prevent hemorroids, there are a number of things you can do. These include a high fiber diet, small alcohol consumption, being sufficiently hydrated, excercise, and avoiding heavy weight lifting. There are more, but these are just to name a few.
When making an appointment, just let them know your symptoms. Expect a rectal exam. Good luck!
A good amount of blood? WTF, get your ass to doctor.
I totally agree with Kat_man, go to the doctor, as soon as possible, you might be embarrassed about talking to a doctor about it, or even having an examination, but its far better to be seen about this than put it off! Good luck let us know how it goes!

Doctors see this kind of thing all the time. You may be embarrased, but to them it's as routine as as sore throat.
Your bleeding may not be caused by a serious condition...but no one on a forum can tell you for sure. And if you bleed heavily, anemia is a possibility. That's not good either.

I agree that a doctor should be seen by now. I hope you have at least an appt pending if not already been seen.

I really think you should take it to the doctor, Bosco. Honestly, they see asses and feel assholes ALL the time and got over being phased about it back in medical school.
I had the same problem as you last year and it turned out to be Ulcerative Colitis, so I really really think you should go to the doctor just in case. Good luck!!
Never waste your time on someone who isn't willing to waste their time on you
don't forget that the location of the blood sorce can be estimated by the color of the blood. if it is bright red like you cut your finger or something then it is closer to the anus. if it is deep red it is further up in your bowels and black tarry is really up there, either way you need to go see a doc cause you know your not supposed to be bleeding out of that area, or any other at that
i hope by now you have seen a MD. it could be a meckels diverticulum - an anomaly of the small intestine. one day you could bleed out so much that you pass out - this happened to someone i know!
you may have like a Internal bleeding, ive red a book called Why men have Nipples its funny but is talks about that, if it keeps going on for a while long i think you should have it checked by a docotor, dont be afraid cause there to help you
