well, I posted this earlier adn can't seem to find it...
I have noticed a few times blood in my stool.   Nothing drops into the toilet and there is no blood when I wipe.  Any ideas? It seems to happen when I don't have a BM one day and the next day it is a bit larger than normal.  I am one of the lucky ones to have formed stools.  Any info would be great!
Diagnosed with crohn's in January 2008! 
Pentasa 1000 mg 4 times a day
On Topamax twice daily for migraines
On nexium - continuing for a month or so...the pred upset my tummy pretty bad. :-(
I am 27 years old and have been married for 2 years.  I cannot wait to try to have children so I want to get this under control!!

There could be a number of reasons for this. You need to have a stool culture done. I would see your doctor about it.

There are many reasons for blood in the stool to include possible hemeroids or fisures. It could be more. The only way to tell is to have your stool tested.
