This is Dr. David

bloody mucous can be seen after hard stool and constipation.

you need to soften your stool with fiber and laxatives and stool softeners

this should fix the bloody mucous

if this doesn't fix the bloody mucous, you need to see your doctor to get stool testing and possibly a colonoscopy.

you had a sigmoidoscopy 2 years ago?
