Hematochezia: Bright red blood mixed in the stool of such a young person is likely secondary to hemorrhoids as your doctor stated. Supportive management will help the most. If you have a family history of colon cancer than you should have further investigations.

Yes at 22: that is the most common cause at your age, wait till fissure heals and go back to your doctor for follow up , he will evaluate you if you need any endoscopic procedure .

See doctor...: The possible etiologies for your symptoms include post-nasal drip and other sinus conditions as well as a throat problem, including infection. You need to be evaluated because blood in your mucous could be a sign of a serious disorder, including malignancy, although most of the time it is benign. See your doctor asap!

Depends: During sexual activity there are many points when sperm containing sexual fluids can leak & contaminate fingers or end up at your vaginal opening apart from the main event. If none of this fluid had access to your vagina, you can't get pregnant from sex using an alternative site.
