red blood? dark red blood? black blood? constipation = tough poop = scratching on the inner sides of your intestines = can cause bleeding. Also, i know this is ewwy, very constipated people present really dry poop, and that also contributes to an unpleasant experience... in a way, you could have just ripped your colon a little :) btw: unless you are really sure that you are in trouble, dont go to the ER with "hi, my anus bleeds" guaranteed colonoscopy :S

Exercising can help a bit but not much. Constipation can cause anal fissures, hemorrhoids and also some far more serious problems as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22r... You probably need to improve your diet as you seem to have a constipation problem. For constipation, castor oil is very good for a one-off remedy as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22c... but it is unsuitable for regular use. For constipation, suppositories, laxatives, fiber supplements and enemas are all totally unnecessary if you eat the right foods. All fruit and vegetables in very large amounts are laxative. You need to permanently change your diet or you are likely to get colon cancer. Constipation can make you extremely unwell and can lead to colon cancer as it causes a build up of carcinogenic toxins in the system. The intake of foods such as milk, cheese, white rice, white flour and red meat should be restricted, because they tend to contribute to constipation. Any food that has had the fiber stripped out, the nutrients processed out or slows down the digestion is a constipation culprit. Here's a list of foods shown to cause constipation problems: •Meats, especially fatty meats, red meat and processed meats, •Dairy Products, such as cheese, ice cream and whole milk, •Fast Foods – burgers, French fries and other fried foods, pizza, etc., •Refined grains, like white rice or any refined white flour products, •Highly starchy foods – white potatoes, corn and all refined grains, •Pastries and other high sugar products, such as cakes, cookies and pies, •Deep-fried foods, chips and other foods that are high in bad fats. You can see lots more in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22n... which tells you "Natural Ways to Relieve Constipation" and the right foods to eat.

No that happens. The tissues are very delicate. You don't need to go to the ER. You can use something like Preparation H to ease the pain and decrease swelling or inflamation.

first if your poop is hard this mean you getting lots of fiber this is a good thing. you may hate this but try drinking more water. lots of fiber and little water makes a form of paste or more like concrete just add water and you get soft formed poop you should go at least 3 times daily

Your best bet is a stool softener, which are not as harsh on the body like a laxative. It is common to get constipated while dieting . Also drink plenty of water. Digestive enzymes won't help constipation.
