Is there something wrong with me?
An_244483 posted:
I've been having trouble with pooping and I'm very unsure as of what's wrong. Two days ago, my poop was red and then I didn't poop for a day, and today it was black. And the water gets slightly red but it separates. I don't have any pain or anything, so I have no idea what's wrong with me. I do have a hemorrhoid however, but it's pretty minor..

Despite having no pain, if your fecal material is going from red to black, you need to check with your doc and talk to him/her about what's might be going on. The hemorrhoid could cause the reddish color, but the black (unless you took or ate something that could impart that color?) is not usual and should be investigated.
