User :   Hi
User :   Hi, I'm 23 years old. I have started drinking coffee (mocha) and a day after, I noticed these darker parts in my feces. They have a natural color but just with darker parts which is strange. Is that "normal" when you drink coffee? (I have pretty sensible bowels) or is it blood? I've had little red blood spots on my feces before but they went away.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   let me read ur query
