23years old/ Overweight and blood in stool for 3/4 days

Hi guys, I’m so scared right now, I noticed bright red blood on a tissue after finishing from the toilet 3/4 days ago and then it stopped for one bowel movement and resumed for the remaining, however, what compelled me to post is the fact that today (after holding it in overnight)  there was quite a bit more blood and this terrified me, I am overweight a lot, I do strain/remain on the toilet for long period of time however the past 2/3 days I avoided straining and avoided remaining and still blood, I even changed what I ate since yesterday and today yet still.

I know Haemorrhoids can cause this, there’s no pain, but I am genuinely terrified.

Hi Kmgs,

I'm sorry to read about your worries at the moment. As you say, there could be a number of reasons for this so try not to worry until you know more.

The only thing to really do in this situation is make an appointment with your GP who will be able to advise what could be going on.

Keep track of any changes in what you're noticing, so that you can explain to the doctor how it's been since you first noticed it.

I hope you're able to find out more soon.

Wishing you all the best,
