Hi everyone. About 2 weeks ago I noticed that sometimes when I go to the bathroom there's a strange cloudy substance that comes out before the bowel movement. It doesn't happen every time and I really don't have any other symptoms and no noticeable problems on the outside of my anus. Could this stuff be pus? It looks almost like a liquid substance. It comes out for maybe 3 or 4 days and then goes away for another couple. Should I be concerned with this? Also, possibly related is that there tend to be a lot of bubbles that come out with my bowel movement, that actually come from the stool itself? Has anyone experienced any of these symptoms and should I be worried by them? My stool is pretty solid in consistency and fairly normal in color as well. Thanks for any help.
