gsivi - I have and still suffer from this problem time to time...(Bleeding)
Also told I had IBS back early this year but seems to be well under control now, I only get bowel problems after a run now and rarely during (Can't remember the last time -which was a major issue)..I had severe piles - chronically in my late teens..
I am 25 (male) now but had such severe piles I had them banded after trying all sorts.. This is the one thing that helped hugely! I have not had any issues bar once a few months ago but have a mild reason why I got them...Anyway - I still have the bleeding bright red blood sometimes when I wipe after a toilet and sometimes after a run.. My diet is very poor now but tends to be focused on fibre rich foods when I can- what's yours like?? I also like to relax on the toilet and never rush it. Even if it means 15 minutes I never strain or force it. The other thing is how much do you go? You may feel like me, needing to go alot but not really going much, hold off if you can, going lots can strain things and I have found I bleed if I go twice in a day. Lots of water helps! Although I never drink close to a litre a day (unless tea counts) it will help
Now being bright red as the doctor said is ok as he said I think.. it's minimal for me too maybe like a small nose bleed but where the passage is exposed and as he said constantly jiggling it can bleed, veins and all sorts are very close to the surface / exit so it can happen if they burst.. I'd really consider pushing the doctor again if you are worried but for me it's not a problem or a worry for me now and I run without concern and I think it should be the same for you .. If it ever become flowing blood or darker I'd be worried and seek advice again.
The constant landing of bobbing up and down probably caused my muscles inside the passage to relax and thus fall out, my piles were external and I could not actually walk.
Good luck - Be confident about the running.
