Straining, genes: Avoid sitting on toilet for prolongedc interval. Avoid constipation. Avoid lifting from a deep squat as this opens up the pelvis more and exhale as you lift.

Depends: There are medical conditions including connective tissue disorders and gastrointestinal disorders which can lead to anorectal prolapse. Individuals to engage in receptive anal intercourse typically do not have problems with anal or rectal prolapse.
