Hello I am a 22 year old male.
All starting about 3 weeks ago, I noticed discharge coming from my anus (yellowish doesn't really smell, sometimes has pink), I made an appointment with my gp and she ordered a stool test, and did some rectal tests with finger and a lighted scope, she didn't seem to find anything but agreed there was mucus and blood, the stool tests came back negative, she gave me an antibiotic but still I get the discharge. I'm on week three with this problem and feeling very scared. I have been avoiding dairy, eating as healthy as I can and drinking plenty of water everyday. Some more symptoms are mild pain when making a bowel movement, bowel movements are not too hard but they seem stringy? Or shredded once in the water, most recently I have noticed in my bowel movements bright red color. Now this symptom I'm not sure if it's from a red fusion smoothie from juice it up that is very red and has beets in it. But I noticed the red about 6 hours after drinking it.

Stool for routine examination plus ova, parasites and stool culture sensitivity testing should be done. If there is per rectal bleeding of unknown origin ie no local cause eg hemorrhoids, hard stool are found then proctosigmoidoscopy or a colonoscopy can be considered in consultation with your doctor. Constipation should be relieved and inflammatory bowel disease workup should be advised
