Dear Annie
This could be due to a hemorroid or a small anal tear - usually this is a spot or 2 on the paper and will stop bleeding within 24 hours. If it persists or happens in big volumes like dessertspoons full or cups full you please need to see your doctor as persistant bleeding from the anus can be a sign of cancer or serious bowel disease.
