black could also mean you might have some bleeding somewhere in the GI tract, like an ulcer..

Black and tarry generally means bleeding somewhere in the upper-middle GI tract. Seeing red blood in stools is generally the result of hemorrhaging in the lower GI tract/rectum area-
OR a samurai sword being lodged in your lower abdomen can do this as well.

Interesting. I feel alright so I'm not too worried. Would a possible ulcer cause me some pain?Originally Posted by Matthew D

Luckily I didn't see any tar or red blood. I'll keep an eye on things.Originally Posted by bioman

If it's a one time thing, it's probably something you ate or drank. If this occurs consistently, you need to get a lab stool done to rule in/out blood from gi bleed.

If you took pepto that will make your stool dark.
