Okay, this is really embarassing, so please just bear with me. On Monday or Tuesday, I was wiping and I noticed a good deal of blood on the tissue [I always look at the tissue to see if I'm spotting]. I put in a tampon and left for class. Later in the day I wiped again, and there was more blood. The tampon was completely clean! So I figured I must've been wiping my behind too much or too hard, and tried to lay off for a while.
I've been doing that all week, but it doesn't seem to be doing any good. But that's not what worries me. On Wednesday, I had a bowel movement, and there was lots of stuff that looked like menstrual blood in the toilet, and I'm absolutely *positive* that I wasn't menstruating.
I'm a virgin, and haven't been having anal sex [!!!], so that can't be it. All of this coincided with my first same-sex date, which was Tuesday--could it be a stress reaction??? Could I have eaten something that looked like blood???
Please help!!! I'm mondo freaked out about going to the gynocologist about this, since I moved away to college in January.

There's not really any good reason to believe this is sex-related, and there's certainly no reason to be embarassed. We've all got butts, right? However, since blood in the stool can be a sign of some pretty serious things, and it seems very unlikely that something you ate would both look just like blood *and* continue to do so for several days, I'd suggest you make a doctor's appointment ASAP. I really couldn't tell you what this is, but once you've started on making arrangements to take care of yourself I'm sure you'll be able to stop stressing out quite so much.

Also, the bleeding could be as simple as tearing (in which case the blood would be bright red -- see Smurf's post in the other thread for details). If your stools are hard, your anus can tear during #2. The way toremedy this is to eat more fiber and drink more water. Otherwise, if you continue to let your anus tear, you can wind up with hemorrhoids.
