Why is it that blood comes out with my stool and its NOT painful?
I dont feel anything unusual.

if it's red blood, it is probably hemmoroids...if your stool is black it could indicate more serious bleeding farther up internally...bleeding is not synonimous with pain...if you get a nose bleed you do not feel pain, unless of course a bonk in the nose is the result of the bleed...

You definitely need to see a Dr. You may have a bleeding ulcer, a perforation of your intestinal tract or polyps.

It means one of two things, either you tore something up there, or you might have an ulsur. Ulsurs are very common to cause blood in the stool. It can also make you very easily irritable at times.

well I would get yourself checked you might be having something seriously wrong with you, you do not necessarily have to feel pain to be ill.

Better get it checked out, most times it's nothing serious - but on the other hand it could be colon cancer.

Rectal bleeding is always a concern and a very good reason for a visit o the Doctor. I experienced what I believe to be a similar problem, i.e., bright red blood in stools, and found it to be easily rectified. In my case spicy foods chased by beer appeared to be the culprit. I have a friend that just swore off of bourbon because he had the same problem and was scared sober as a result. check the following link for more infoormation.

You many need to see a doctor
it could be something

It doesn't sound good. If it is fresher redder blood, then perhaps it is just hemoroids or whatever near the entrance. But if it is darker blood, that could be more serious. Either way, I'd go see the doctor if I were you.

The reason why it doesn't hurt is that you dont have pain receptors in your intestinal tract like you do in the skin. The only thing that registers as pain in your bowels is stretching or distention. So gas "hurts". But, an abrasion of the lumen (ie, the inside) of your bowel doesn't "feel" like an abrasion of your skin, which has pain receptors. Of course, if you have an anal fissure, THAT is painful because the skin there has pain receptors. Just a centimeter above that, however, you don't.

You may have small tears that are causing blood to come out. But it shouldn't be that much, just a stain on the toilet paper. But it may also be an indication that something is bleeding higher up in the intestinal tract. It could also be something as serious as cancer, or as benign as hemorrhoids or anal fissures.

When to see your doctor:

The blood is dark red or maroon.
Bleeding occurs between bowel movements.
You have tarlike, black or rust-colored stools.
You're older than 50.
Your family has a history of colon or rectal cancer.

You may have internal hemmorroids. If the blood is bright red that is most likely the cause. If not you need medical help

Go see a doctor. It may not be anything at all but I wouldn't take that chance.

Do not wait to see a doctor.It could be colon cancer.Make an appointment immediately.I hope everything turns out o.k. for you.

Bleeding from your rectum can occur for many reasons, including:

Constipation. Passing hard, dry stools may scrape or tear your anal lining. You may notice small drops or streaks of bright red blood on your stool, on your toilet tissue or in the toilet bowl.
Hemorrhoids. These swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and rectum are another source of rectal bleeding. Again, you may notice small drops or streaks of bright red blood on your stool, on your toilet tissue or in the toilet bowl.
Diverticular bleeding. Diverticula are small, bulging pouches in the large intestine. Diverticula may cause painless but sometimes severe bleeding.
Infection. Some bowel infections cause diarrhea and rectal bleeding. Abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting and fever may be present as well. These infections are usually caused by eating contaminated food.
Colon polyps. A polyp is a small clump of cells. Although most colon polyps are harmless, some may eventually become cancerous. You may notice bright red blood on the toilet paper after you've had a bowel movement.
Peptic ulcers. Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the lining of the stomach, upper small intestine or esophagus. Sometimes the sores bleed. In addition to upper abdominal pain, you may notice dark blood in your stools or black, tarry stools .
Inflammatory bowel disease. Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease are the two most common forms of inflammatory bowel disease. These often painful and debilitating conditions cause chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. Food moving through your digestive tract can cause the inflamed tissue to bleed. You may notice bright red blood in the toilet bowl or darker blood mixed with your stool.
Lack of blood supply to the bowel. If the blood flow to your small intestine or colon is reduced, you may develop intestinal ischemia. This may cause bright red- or maroon-colored blood in your stool.
Colorectal cancer. Most colon and rectal cancers begin as small, harmless clumps of cells called polyps. Eventually, some of these polyps may become cancerous. You may notice rectal bleeding, along with a change in bowel habits, narrow stools, abdominal discomfort, a feeling that your bowel doesn't empty completely and unexplained weight loss.

Colon polyps
Peptic ulcer
Crohn's disease
Intestinal ischemia
Colon cancer

When to see your doctor
Consult your doctor at the first sign of rectal bleeding. Often, the bleeding is temporary and easily treated. Sometimes, however, the bleeding may be a warning sign of something more serious. Prompt diagnosis and treatment could save your life.
