Question

I have trouble excreating waste normally, please assist.

Hello Doc.

I have had problems when going to the toilet to make a poo for a few years and I''m a little worried as to why I cannot poo normally.
Firstly, I only poo every third or forth day, sometimes even longer apart than that, and when I do eventually go, sometimes it feels as though the poo is too big to come out my bum and I have to push on the soft skin between my vagina and anus (and I can feel it sitting there) and push, then it comes out and my anus bleeds a little and the poo is rather large. Other times it is very small and comes out like little pellets, almost like a rabbits poo!
I don''t know if it is the muscles needed to push harder that are weak (how can I exercise them) or if the intestine/tube by my anus is too large and the poo doesn''t flow out properly. I dunno what to do or what kind of doctor too see about this.

Hallo Lee
Please see a gynecologist as you have the typical symptoms of a rectocele ( See http://www.fascrs.org/patients/conditions/rectocele/) You may need a small operation to correct this. Try to use Lactulose 10-15 ml each night to keep your stool soft.

Thank you Doc, I read that article and it was very informative! That explains my symptoms exactly! Oh my word, I hope I can rectify this using medicine and not an operation.
I don''t suffer with any problem with my vagina, except for pain during intercourse, but it''s only happened about 3-4 times.
Thanks again.

You are constipated. Eat lots of fiber rich foods and drink lots of water... Not sure if you also need some laxatives to kick start your digestion, though.
