Hi back
I am sorry for my late.
I review your last photo and I can say that it seems to be a darker stool .
Darker stools usually are related with:
- vegetables use
- iron tablets use
It is not black stool so to my opinion it doesn't seems to be related woth Gastrointestinal bleeding.
The other two photos are in normal colour of
stools.
To my opinion there is nothing to be worried.
