I for years used Senna Laxative for constipation purposes. I never had what you called formed stools. I got diarrhea from antibiotics and I came off of the senna and decide to stay off of it. I then started having formed stools which in turn started my hemmoroids bleeding. Can having years of non formed stools and then have quite large stools cause the hemmoroids to bleed?
Yes, any change in your daily routine can cause anal irritation. That being said, if your are at an age where you are at risk for colorectal diseases, please see your doctor for a thorough exam.
