I'm wondering what some causes are for a darkened bowel movement. I know that blood in the intestines is the most likely but I don't think that is causing this. I have some really dark BMs a couple of times a month, maybe all day, maybe just once and then not again for many weeks. Is there something else that causes a very dark color (almost black)? Perhaps something I'm taking for my cleanse?
When I have killed parasites it comes out black, couple of really old big tape worms where all back fluid before and after they came out. Now if I kill round worms they come out way darker then normal stool.
Are you on a parasite cleanse?
I'm almost always on some mild cleanse and pass worm segments almost daily whether I'm cleansing or not. I have a full rainbow of colors coming out, green, yellow, brown, black (not all at once, but definitely all in one week). Glad to hear it's not necessarily blood. Sometimes the texture is different and I've wondered if an excess flow of bile may cause some of this.
