Absolutely....inflammation has increasing stages, only once the lining becomes friable (fragile) does it bleed. I don't bleed with flares any more, but I treat extremely early at first symptoms by increasing the rectal meds.
I would suggest you use them.
You could use Metamucil smooth or other fibre supplement (make sure not one with artificial sweeteners) to help bulk up the stool.
If it's continuing, you might ask the doc to give you a kit for stool samples to have tested.
