I have just recently given birth the 16th of July to my first child. After the birth I had my first poop 3 days later with minimal pain and a few more after that with little or no problem. Now about 2 weeks later, have experienced extreme pain and now blood when I go. It's to the point where I hold it in till I can't hold it in any longer. Then when I go, I only allow myself to go a little bit not emptying myself completely. I have tired stool softeners and now laxitives and lots of water to no avail. The laxitives allow me to pass more gas which relieves pressure but thats about it. Before I do go, I always take a 10 min hot shower to help soften the skin around the area and relieve pain and use baby wipes instead of toliet paper to reduce scrapping the area. I am starting to worry about what I'm doing to my insides from refusing to go. Does anyone know what else I can do to help me go without the pain and blood?

I have tried all over counters prescriptions, natural things, and even our freind castr oil. do you still have the sits bath swirt bottle that they gave you after you gave birth, if so fill it with the warmest water you can take in the rectum (this will be a little cooler then the reg. temp to your hand.) this may not sound the best but when you get fevers trowing up and having labor like pains due to the chronic pains of not going.bend over toliet and swirt as much water as you can, i hold it in for as long as i can and shake, rub my tummy to try to break up anything that wants to come loose. sit on toliet and push with all your might. a lot of water will come out but it will pull other things down and from the water they will be slippery and not sticky, and they will come out better. sorry if this sounds gross and it is jumbbled, missppelled.i have 3 children that don't even let me go potty.

  • FEEL YOUR PAIN!!hi can identify with the pain and discomfort.i was referred to a specialist who diagnosed anal fissures and some medication to help blood flow to the perineal area to heal the tears. this tremendously helped with the horrible pain.you could talk to your doctor about this.
