Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Blood in the stool can be caused by a variety of things. A common cause are hemorrhoids - you can read about this here as well as causes and treatment options: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/hemorrhoids

Rectal bleeding can also happen if there is a problem in the digestive system or issues with your colon. I think it's a good idea to get yourself checked out and treated.
