I searched the site and got some answers, but wanted to see if anyone had more information.  I have noticed every once in awhile small amounts of blood on my stool.  Nothing drops into the bowl and there is nothing when I wipe.  I seem to have noticed that it happens when I don't have a BM for a day, and then my BM is larger than normal.  (I'm one of the lucky ones to have formed stools!)  Sorry if this is too graphic.  Any ideas of what it might be?  Thanks!
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!!

If you have any crohns in your large intestine then it is probally from that. I have alot of blood from my UC which is a similar disease. Or it could be hemiroids if you notice them with large stools.

I'd say it's time to visit your GI, since you've been diagnosed with Crohn's and are having bleeding...hana24 is also right in that it could be caused by hemorrhoids too, but it's always important to get any bleeding checked out!
