Blood within our stool is very common during flareups. Do not worry, you are not going to bleed to death. We typically loose between 1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon of blood within a 24 hour period during UC flares. UC involves almost microsocopic ulcers, although numerous, only release a small drop of blood at a time. The blood mixes with diarrhea and mucus and looks like a whole lot more than it actually is. Just one drop of blood can spread and paint all of our toilet water red.
