Typically it is more common for bleeding with UC than with CD because of the colon involvement, with exeption to us CDers who have disease activity in the colon....when there's disease activity in the colon then one is more prone to bleeding regardless if it's from UC or CD.

Of course not every UC or crohns-colitis sufferer experiances bleeding either, alot has to do with how severe disease acitvity is.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
