  • Is the blood bright red? If so, its possible that your stool is too hard when you are passing it that it is causing tears called anal fissures. Sometimes stool softeners help. But if you suspect a bigger problem, see a gastroenterologist. Here is a link on this---> http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/a/anal_fissure/intro.htm
