Question: Bleeding after bowel movement


 tristen1006 - Thu Dec 04, 2003 10:25 pm

After a bowel movement is start bleeding. I haven't had anal sex in months and this just started about a month ago. I am not regular, so is it possible that I have a problem with needing a stool softner or should I change my eating habits and switch to a healthier diet...I'm a fast food addict.

Thanks so very much

User avatar Tristen,
You need to get a check up because you may have a condition that needs mecidical attention such as piles or a developing anal fissure.
