Are you taking iron supplements or pepto bismal? Both will make your stool black. If you are in pain, running a fever, or are unusually pale or are real freaked out you may want to call the doctor.

I think you found the culprit. However if you become more ill or the dark stool does not resolve and you have not taken any more pepto you should contact your doctor to be on the safe side.

Yep, that's probly the pepto. The bit of blood was probably just from maybe not going for longer than you're used to and then having the anus stretched, when it's just a bit of fresh red that only shows up on the paper it's usually 'external', from the anus itself, and not from the inside of the colon. That and pepto poo can be harder than normal poo.

hm, no blueberries, but i ate plums, apples, strawberries, and drank some detox herb tea. i'm normal now (as far as bm's go anyway), so not too worried. thanks for the support :D
