Nanners, I had the bright red blood from the internal hemmies and I did not have to strain to bleed. it usually happened when I had the D.... it seemed to happen in spurts and I have had a while since it has happened.
I think you are probably ok but some hemmie cream might not hurt. the internal ones kind of peek out a bit for me so the cream helps make them shrink a little.

I hope its nothing serious! I get blood in my stool but usually only when I'm having a flare or I eat something rough like I shouldn't like popcorn, corn, etc..
