Blood in stools, no pain, normal colour. Had diet change, inactivenes. Cause for bleeding?

I ve been experiencing streaks of rather bright blood in my stool and also droplets of blood in the toilet bowl. I haven t had any trouble actually going to actually defecate, and the colour of the poo looks as it normally does. I m 18, however I ve had a fairly massive lifestyle change and diet change as I have moved to University and I am fairly un-active as of late, this has been happening for roughly two weeks.

Thank you for the query.

Fresh blood in stool is mostly caused by hemorrhoids. However this is what causes your symptoms, in every case of blood in stool colonoscopy should be performed to see if there is something else causing such blood.
To get rid of bleeding you should avoid constipations, have fiber rich diet, drink more mineral water, increase physical activity. Hot baths with Quercus Cortex after every stool might be helpful. You should also avoid hard pushing on stool. Prescription free suppositories for hemorrhoids can help as well.
If such treatment wont stop this bleeding, you should visit a surgeon, as surgery might be necessary.

Hope this will help.
