Rectal prolapse: It sounds like you have a rectal prolapse. Anal sex will make this worse. It is best to see a doctor about a repair before having anal sex.

Use protection: In theory, anal sex would be possible , but not advisable. STD's, especially HIV, can be transmitted through anal sex, so condoms are a must to protect yourself. The anal tissues are easily injured, and anal intercourse can cause bleeding as well as transmission of infectious agents.
