Problem with bathroom breaks (whatever word you want to fill in the blank) - November 24th 2016, 07:30 PM

Okay so I'm a little worried. I went to the bathroom and noticed something. My poop is black and I did research to find that it is a symptom of a bleeding stomach or small intestine. And I haven't had my period in quite awhile either, probably several months. And I always have this weird nasty discharge stuff in my underwear.

It's really weird and I'm kinda freaking out. I have an eating disorder so that could have to do with it. I'm drinking a ton of water every day so I have a lot of bathroom breaks but it shouldn't affect me that way.

Support and advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

It sounds like you need to see a doctor as soon as you can. It may not be serious, but it may be serious. It's better safe than sorry with this.

Hi Cheyenne,

I work in my local hospital. The biggest advice we give EVERYONE there is to NOT google your symptoms. Most of the time it turns out 'you're going to die'. I know it's scary when something is not normal with your body. There could be a million reasons as to why your stool is black. Most of which are not serious and not listed on google. It could be what you've eaten/drank, it could be medication (if you're on any), or it could be that the stool was in your body for too long.

So, my point is don't google symptoms when something is wrong. If something is wrong and you're concerned go see your doctor. Your doctor knows a lot more than google. If you're extremely worried, or you start seeing blood in your stool then go to your local emergency department.

I hope you feel better soon!
Take care of yourself.
Brittany

No problem! Try not to stress about it until you talk to your doctor. I'm sure it's nothing serious.

Feel better soon!

Having black stools it's only just upper track bleeding.

Things you eat or medication can turn your stools black. If you had charcoal this is the most common side effect. Eating red velvet cake can turn your stool red or black. Most dyes you consume can result in different colour stools. Making note of what you ate may result in stool colours of red or black.

Usually if it is medication, once you've finished your medication your stools will go back to normal. With food with dyes usually 2-3 days depending on how much you ate and if you keep eating it.

Beets are on cause for red/black stools.

If it persists without any reason or connection to what you are consuming I would recommend visiting your family doctor.

Keep track of your bowel movements, how the stool looks like, texture, colour, any unusual or different smells, and how many bowel movements you have. Also noting the foods you ate.

I hope this was helpful. Take care.

Hey there,

I would suggest that you get in to a doctor just to be certain that everything is okay. As stated google is a terrible place to look up symptoms. I've done it before and it said I was dying and I got really anxious. Seeing a doctor will get this situation resolved relatively quickly.

As for the lack of the period, that could definitely be due to the eating disorder. I know people in my old treatment center who did not have periods for extended periods of time because of what the eating disorder was doing to their body.
