Question: Semen through the anus?

 Jupi - Sun Mar 16, 2008 7:43 am

Is there anyway semen, or maybe fluid from the prostate, can come out through the anus after going to the bathroom? If so, how is that possible, or what can cause that? (Absolutely no gay or other abnormal sexual activity.)

User avatar Hello Jupi,

In very rare cases there can be a connection form between the urethra and the rectum. This could allow passage of semen into the GI tract. Much more likely than this are conditions that cause mucous formation in the GI tract. The mucous may look like semen. This can occur from inflammatory type conditions of the GI tract ranging from infections to an inflammatory bowel disease.

If this condition continues, seeing a GI specialist would be appropriate. A colonoscopy may be helpful to look for evidence of any of connections or other inflammatory problems.

Best wishes.
