Hello everyone! I have a problem... Three weeks ago I, for the first time, tried anal sex... It was kinda painful, and I was very tense while it. And since that day I have problems during bowel movements... I just can't finish it! At first it's fine, and at the end it definitely feels like there's still something there, no matter how hard I push it won't come out! Or sometimes few small pieces only... I tried castor oil, the first time I used 15 ml (it said to use from 15-60 ml) - it didn't work, the next time I used 50 ml - so instead of starting to work after 2-6 hours (as it said on the bottle) it only worked after like ~12! And at the end it was the same - I couldn't finish it... And the next time I tried 40 ml and didn't get almost any effect... I tried eating a lot of prunes - didn't help... One day I tried not to eat at all - didn't help! I drank plenty of water... Now I'm thinking about not eating for two days... I don't wanna see a doctor Sad, but just in case: how is this kind of specialist called..? By the way my libido decreased a LOT, is that connected? And now it's just 14:30 (2:30 pm) and I had to use the bathroom for like 3 times already!

Sometimes people having an anal intercourse develop hemorrhoids.
Incomplete bowel movements is a symptom of internal hemorrhoids (located inside the rectum), as they become swollen, protruded inside the canal, stool may have a more difficult time getting by, which can seriously prolong a bowel movement past the normal time it takes.
Another symptom of internal hemorrhoids is a continual feeling of incomplete defecation or need to go more frequently to the toilet, because when they get big enough, hemorrhoids put pressure on anal cushions.

Your physician can make a rectal physical exam to check for internal hemorrhoids or you may ask for referral for a gastrointestinal doctor!

Best wishes!

But wait: it can't be hemorrhoids... Cos it should hurt a lot, shouldn't it? Well it doesn't hurt to me nor there's blood in my stool. I'm telling you at first it's fine, nothing's slimmer, nothing's dry, but at the end... Can this problem cause depression? Cos I feel depressed...

I don't know if your still visiting this page, but i know what's going on with you. While you were doing anal, you said you were very tense right? What happened was while his penis was sliding back and forth inside you, it was hurting you, so you tightened your anal sphincter muscles...and you tightened them a lot. So during that anal sex you basically reprogrammed your sphincter muscles to not relax when there is something passing along. Now every time you go poop, you feel like you can't finish because as the stool is passing out, your muscles will contract WHILE it is passing out, just like they did while he was screwing you back and forth. There's not much you can do about this. You should've considered more before you had anal sex. And yes, this problem can cause depression if you keep thinking about it. What I suggest you do is just go once a day, do your best, and just forget about it. No matter what you do, don't tell the guy you had anal sex with that this happened to you. I know this sounds wrong, but he'll probably secretly feel even better knowing that he had anal sex with you once and messed you up all for his pleasure.

Bowels
OK Ive had this problem all my life. The only thing that works is to use Konsyl, (an over the counter Psyllium Fiber) before every meal. It helps lube the intestines; therefor the bowl slides out much better.

It CAN be other things than hemorrhoids. A poster above hinted that it can also be a fiber deficiency. Some diets can have you taking supplements that deplete, or don't offer any fiber. Usually those will come with a warning, or an additional supply of fiber. In addition, older people can have this problem as well when their diet starts to lack, and the don't get enough fiber. Such is the purpose of cereals with high fiber, products like Fiber One and Metamucil... So don't just assume u have hemorrhoids.

Also anal sex is not dangerous like the other poster was raging on. Yes she shouldn't clench, but it is not the end all be all, or even a likely cause for hemorrhoids.

I'm male and I've had (have) hemorrhoids and I've been diagnosed with them by a doctor. They're definitely not healthy, but they are not as big of a deal as people think. My doctor told me as humans we naturally have a problem with hemorrhoids because our spinal coulmn is aligned with our rectum. He told me about 90% of adults have them. Causes: straining, or constant pressure on back such as sitting in an office chair all day. The major one though is straining. Women get them often as a result of child labor. Men/women get them as a result of weight training sometimes. Most people get them from straining during defecation. So my guess is you got hemorhoids due to straining while engaging in anal intercourse. And I say that I think its hemorrhoids because thats the feeling it gives upon completion of defecation... like you're not finished. Because something literally is in there. And in mild cases they are not painful. Sometimes you'll get the feeling you didn't wipe thoroughly as well.

A lot of people don't know this but when pooping your sphincter relaxes it doesn't push. It tightens only to stay shut. So here's the key for hemorrhoids: they will subside if you take it easy. No more anal sex for awhile, and in that case never if you don't feel like you can relax back there, eat healthy, don't spend to much time on the toilet especially while straining. Do what you would think was a normal bowel movement and get off the pot. Maintain cleanliness in that vicinity as well, maybe get some flushable baby wipes thats what I do. They will subside. Never technically going away. You can look in the mirror if your flexible enough and see them. should look like white bumps (skin stretches.) if they're internal you can't see them. Eat healthy. Eat healthy. Reduce toilet time. Stay clean. You'll be fine. Good luck.

Cured this problem after years of having it.
I had this and I've solved it now. I read a lot of posts and everyone that posted said that they eat a really healthy diet with whole grains and five veggies/fruits a day and that they don't get it when they eat junk foods or are eating at restaurants on a trip. I started to realize it's from too much fiber. I looked up the fiber amounts. You'd be amazed how much fiber is in pasta, for example. You don't need the whole grain kind of pasta because there's a ton of fiber just in the white kind. Also, spaghetti sauce has a lot. I started to pay attention to this and eat more meats and less whole grains and less fruit, but still keep things balanced with some fruits and veggies. I think the main offender is whole grains and just eating too many fruits and veggies. Anyway, I've cured it now! So incredibly happy because it was really making me miserable, and I had even gotten checked by the doctor which was really embarrassing. He found nothing but wanted me to have a colonoscopy next- that was enough motivation to try to fix this with diet. So glad I did! Hope this helps!

I know it feels embarrassing to think of going to see your Dr, but you really don't have to feel that way. Believe me...they've seen and heard everything already and won't judge you. They're healers at heart. That's why they do what they do. If this is still a problem or a concern for you; by all means make an appointment with your Dr. When the receptionist asks you why - just tell her that it's personal.

Seriously, try seeing a Physical Therapist who specializes in constipation (will do biofeedback, massages, etc to strengthen anal muscles and help with GI dyssynergia) - Will change your life!
