Elizabeth, is it just in the bowl or is it threaded thru your stool? If its red blood in the water, I would assume internal hemmoroids, but if its threaded thru the stool, I would be a little more concerned. Have you talked to your doctor about this? I think you should at least bring it to his/her attention.
