Blood in Stool

Some people with Crohn's Disease or other forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) may experience blood in their stool. Some may experience a black stool that isn't actually blood but instead caused by certain medications, food, supplements, or minerals which is called false melena.

If you have been diagnosed with IBD but never had blood in your stool before or the amount of blood in your stool is greater than "normal", be sure to notify your doctor.
