Can bright blood with stool be due to hemorrhoids?

I have had bright blood in my stools before which I assume is hemorrhoids because it usually occurs after several trips to the bathroom pooping water. For the past week or so I am getting more heartburn, my stomach is burning,, I am having pains similar to menstrual cramps and having darker blood in the stool. It is not tarry or black.
