My boyfriend fingered my anus and a few days later, there was a little blood when I wiped, but now I'm getting excessive anal discharge.... Help?

Not serious: Anal intercourse or anal fingering does not, in itself, cause any anal damage. So, no need to worry.
However, hemorrhoids (swollen anal veins) can be irritated and can bleed. Anal discharge of mucus is common, but if persistent, may require an examination. Discharges may be from inflammation or an underlying anal infection. An exam will easily detect these and allow treatment.

I wake up with a wet butt crack. Idk if it's anal discharge or if I'm sweating... how can I tell?? I wear heavy sweats to bed. Plz help

Look and smell: It is likely to be sweat. You can know better by taking a look at the soiled clothing and may be by smelling it. Unless you are taking medication to limit fat absorption, anal leakage is unlikely at your age.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
