why do I sometimes have blood and hard bowels but other times its not hard
There could be several reasons for the symptoms you describe, particularly if you have IBS in addition to IBD.
I would need to know more about your history (for instance, do you have CD, or UC?), and the nature of the bleeding you are experiencing (a little bit on the toilet paper just when your stools are hard? cramps, and a whole lot of bright red blood "pouring" out with diarrhea?) to be more help to you.
Write again if you'd like--
I have bright red blood on toilet paper and hard stools,this happened last week also ,but I have no pain like if I had hemmorids.My stomach hasebeen giving me alot of pain
It's been a while since you've posted here. I hope this means that you've been doing relatively OK--well, at least, GI-wise.
It seems like you may be constipated, and are straining with hard, dry stools that are causing some fissures (cracks) to your anal tissue. But, you don't mention anything about your GI history or medical history, or if you are experiencing a little or lot of bleeding, the color and quality of the bleeding, or any other answers to my various questions in my earlier response to you.
I would really like to help you, but I need you to help me in order to be able do so.
DEAR SUZAN, FIRST OF ALL U HAVE TO KNOW IS THE BLOOD COLOR BRIGHT RED OR IT IS RED TO BLACK , BECAUSE IF IT IS FRESH AND BRIGHT IN COLOR IT MEANS THAT U HAVE EITHER PILES OR ANAL FISSUER, BUT IF ITS DARK U HAVE TO ASK U DR, BECUASE IT MEANS THAT BLEEDING MAY TAKE PLACE FROMUPPER PARTS.. WISH U A LIFE WITHOUT ANY HARM ..
