Basically I have been having trouble going for a poo. When I do it really hurts - like passing broken glass! And when I do there is blood. I have put the blood down to being torn tissue because of the straining and pain. I thought it might be a fibre problem but I have improved my fibre intake and it isn't that. It started about 3 weeks ago. It stopped for a few days about a week ago and has come back. I checked this morning - I know this sounds sick but I thought something might be stuck up there - like some stool or something. So I put 1 finger in and I found a very very small lump. It is smaller than a pea but that would explain the itching and pain. But also when I tried to put my finger in I struggled. Normally your anus would widen up - but my won't - also explaining why it is hard to poo. So it is either swollen inside or just not widening. I also have another small lump next to my clitoris. Neither me or my partner have been with anyone else so I don't think its an STD. Plus I would of thought there would be more than just 2 if it was anything else. I don't know if the lumps are connected or just a co-incidence.

And NO this isn't a joke - I really worried and scared of gong to the docs!
