Stop forcing "pooping" you could be damaging the snake insides. Bloods tend to hold in feces for a long time. I have heard a theory that since they are an ambush predator that they hold it in so they don't have to move from their hunting spot. My bloods and borneos sometimes go for a month or more then let it all out. As long as your snake is eatting well and is hydrated and has temps in the 80 degree range I think you should have no problem. I know some people who live in drier climates will soak their bloods once a week. I soak my bloods in winter and when they are having trouble shedding. Bloods are not hard to keep like some books say. I keep mine like I keep my other pythons and boas and rarely if ever have any problems.
