sometimes I have dark stools, recently it happened to me because I consumed black seeds but also some time ago it happened to me because I suffer from constipation and when I don't go out in the bathroom for a long time I have dark stools, occurs only once and then returns to normal color , I do not have vomiting or severe abdominal pain, what can it be, nor do I take any medicine, blood tests every time I do them, they turn out very well, once again it happened to me that my stool was half black and the other half was normal color but as far as I can remember I had consumed black seeds, idk

Usually that's a sign of blood in your stool.   I know some medicines like Pepto Bismol can cause black stools.   I would talk to your doctor for sure.

Have it checked out. I have crohn's so have some knowledge of this & black stools can be a sign that you are bleeding nearer the start of the large intestine as it gets mixed with the poo & dries before leaving the body, red fresh blood is nearer the anus.
