Why Is My Chapter Not Fluent And Accompanied By Blood?
I am a 35-year-old woman, I defecate smoothly every day sometimes 4 days and once the chapter is bleeding, the blood is fresh, why is that?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Stool blood indicates that there is bleeding at one location in the gastrointestinal tract. If the minimum amount of bleeding is generally not visible to the eye, it can be detected on a fecal occult test. If the bleeding is moderate, it can be seen mixed or on the surface of the stool.
Some conditions that cause these conditions include:
1. Diverticulitis, is the formation of a sac in the wall of the large intestine.
2. Fissura ani, is a tear in the anal lips. Fissures can occur due to hard and large bowel movements that cause pain.
3. Colitis, is inflammation of the intestinal mucosa most often caused by infection.
4. Hemorrhoids, is a dilation of veins around the anus.
Symptoms are felt in the form of bleeding when a fresh red blood chapter either only dripping a little or a lot or the presence of a mass prolapse during bowel movements.
Evaluation of blood bowel complaints needs to be done by a doctor to look for possible origin of the bleeding. For example, blackish stools are generally caused by bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract (esophagus and stomach), while bowel movements with bright red blood indicate lower gastrointestinal disorders such as in cases of hemorrhoids or diverticulitis.
Then the doctor will do a physical examination related to symptoms and suggest other investigations to help diagnose, for example endoscopy, colonoscopy, barium enema, etc. depending on the suspicion of the diagnosis.
Treatment will depend on the final diagnosis. While what can be done to prevent worsening symptoms include:
1. Consumption of 25-30 grams of fiber per day.
2. Drink 6-8 glasses of water a day.
3. Changing bowel habits. Hurry up to the bathroom when you feel you are going to defecate.
4. Avoid straining.
That's all, hope you can help
