Unless I'm in a really bad flare, I rarely bleed either. More often than not, I just get frequent cramping, urgency, gas, mucous, and diarhea...or the flip side of that, I'm constipated. Even during my flares, blood is present in my stools, but not dripping or anywhere near the amount that I've read about
others having. This is one funky disease, everyone suffers in their own personal way, but we can all relate.
