Have you mentioned this to your doctor before? Is this a new symptom? How much blood, a tsp, a cup, or more? So if you've never talked to your doc about this, do it soon. If it is a lot, and you feel woozy, lightheaded or otherwise, you need to be seen right away. In all cases, a photograph, for your doc always helps to show the doc the level of bleeding...gotta love them cell phones cameras. Good luck...

Wow, what a great idea...
Between the panic, and trying to remember how much was in there...
And not an easy subject to talk about...

If this is a new symptom for you, I would talk to your doctor about it. Bright red blood usually is from hemmoroids (can be internal too), but it could be from somewhere in the colon too. Definetly talk to your doctor about this.

Good luck!
