Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Call your primary care physician to report this, today.

Black stool can indicate bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract, such as the stomach.
It can be caused by a bleeding ulcer or taking iron supplements. Since you are also having pain, please call your doctor.

Keep us updated,
