Hello and welcome.
Thanks for your query.
First you need to understand the sign of fresh blood in the stool is a sign of a lower GIT (gastrointestinal tract) bleed.
The various reasons for this can be the following:
of the gut)
-Colitis (inflammation of inner lining of the colon)
-Hemorrhage (bleeding from a ruptured blood vessel inside the colon)
-Hemorrhoids (swollen vein or group of vessels around the anus)
-Lower GIT ulcers
-Irritable bowel syndrome
(consisting of ulcerative colitis
and Crohn's disease)
(diverticula in the intestine) A diverticula is a hollow out-pouching of the lining of a structure
And many more. In my opinion, if the bleeding has been intermittent, then the cause is still present, and causes bleeding only on triggering.
My advice would be to schedule a doctors appointment, preferably a gastroenterologist and discuss the possibilities after he/she examines you, although a colonoscopy would also greatly help in visualizing and locating the cause.
I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.
