I have recently been constipated and noticed a swollen rectum, I've noticed it since the last time I had anal intercourse (with using a toy), The swelling usually goes away but this time it doesn't seem to and now it is very difficult going to the bathroom , I don't have pain in the rectum and I don't have as many bowel movements as normally, It seems I go every three days now, (my urination pattern is ok tho) I know this is not normal, I might of damaged something? Also, There seems to be blood not in the feces but a little that appears when I do go. I know I probably torn something but I don't get why I have become so constipated and no urges to go poop as normally. Please help

  • The same thing happened to my friend, who has a lot of anal sex. You should probably stop that. Anyway, she went to the doctor and took a lot of laxatives, eventually the problem went away, but things are still not quite normal for her.

  • If you noticed any blood or you suddenly have a darken-tarry stool, you should see a doctor immediately. There might be a hidden cause to your symptom which may lead to other major health concerns with your gastrointestinal system.

  • The swelling and the traces of bright red blood on stool sound like hemorrhoids. No pain indicate to me that it is probably an internal hemorrhoid, above the pectate line above which you do not get sharp pain sensation due to lack of nerve endings. Use more lubrication if you choose to continue anal intercourse.Constipation is probably from fecal impaction... from anal intercourse. Try to starve your self for a couple of days so you have no stool in your bowel before attempting anal intercourse. Though there is risk with not eating... You can try a clear liquid diet with electrolyte, gatorade, etc...If you have pain/discomfort every time you go now, along with blood. Anal fissure is a possibility. See a doctor to rule out the latter or any other possible malignant process.

  • Eat 3 - 4 serves of stone fruit daily, such as plums, apricots, peaches, or prunes. If you use soluble fibre, such as Metamucil, do this only for a short time (advice from Dr. Mercola, at www.mercola.com). Your diet should be high in insoluble fibre, from sources such as brown rice, oatmeal, and wholegrain breads, such as sourdough rye. Consume 4 - 5 serves of vegetables, daily including a leafy green one, such as broccoli, spinach, cabbage, kale, or silverbeet (swiss chard), and a yellow/orange one, like yams, (sweet potato) carrots, or pumpkin/squash. One of the other serves should be legumes, preferably beans, but may include peas, lentils, or chickpeas. A serve is 2 heaped tablespoonsful, or half a cup (125 ml) of cooked food. A natural laxative is senna, which is available at health food stores and some pharmacies and supermarkets. In WW2 a daily teaspoonful of parrafin was given to those affected with constipation, and is still used in some places, today. When necessary, I use an old traditional remedy: Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulfate: Mg SO4) ask the pharmacist. I use a quarter teaspoonful in a large glass of water, and drink HALF of it on that day, and the rest on the day after. I recommend avoiding harsh commercial products, such as Laxettes. The skin of the anus and rectum is considerably thinner than that of the vagina, and therefore more prone to injury, and resulting infection, due to contamination of the affected area by fecal matter with its high microbial content. I suggest that you accept that the activity which caused it is likely to cause a similar, or even worse result, if repeated.

  • I have had anal sex about a month ago and I have been constipated ever since then. When I do use the bathroom my feces is stringy and sometimes dark. I want to see a doctor but am to afraid to go and see my regular doctor. I am located in NYC does anyone know what could be wrong? Also what specialist can I see about this?

  • It seams that he has hemorrhoids. Not really 100% sure, but doctor said that this is the most common thing for anal bleeding. Yeap I got him to go to doctors office. :) At least he now knows what is he against.
