"rectal prolapse " ?: Unless one has had multiple and traumatic vaginal deliveries (unusual at age 21), the natural tendency to withhold bowel movements due to psychological inhibition or unavailability of restroom facilities may cause stretching of the rectum which decreases the signal indicating a need for evacuation. Ask your physician about medications to assist with constipation, and drink more liquids.
