I get the same. I've been in remission for a few years now but I usually have some blood at the end and always when I wipe. I think you just learn what is normal for you.

Could be hemorrhoids. They'll often act up during and after a flare because you spend so much time on the toilet.

I hate that most.  I had that mostly just mucous mixed with blood end of BM.  Since prednisone that went away until I tapered to 20 mg. and now back again.  Can't call it remission and wondering about going back up to 25mg or?  I am also on 6MP now for 4 weeks today.

No urgency, no diarrhea, no actual "bleeding", no cramping - little discomfort in rectum at time.
