My boyfriend and I tried anal sex for the first time. It only lasted about 5 minutes and didn't hurt at all. Shortly after we have an "accident" and the next day I took plan B. A few days later My boyfriend tried again and it hurt really bad. It's been over a week since the first time we had anal sex and since then I've been constipated. I tried taking laxatives but they don't seem to help. I seem to only be able to release a small amount of diarrhea. What can I do to help relieve myself?
Bowel movements can get altered after anal sex, especially if there was some trauma to anal sphincter or rectum. Injury related spasm of the sphincter can be responsible for pain and constipation. If the injury is only minor and superficial, it will get healed in a few days and it is preferable not to indulge in anal sex at during this time. The time required at relieving may need to be extended to relax the sphincter. Fiber rich diet will definitely help during this period. Thank you.
