When i empty my bowels, i strain. I've always done it and it caused my anal fissures, itching, and pain. How do I stop straining so my anus can heal?

When i empty my bowels, i strain. I've always done it and it caused my anal fissures, itching, and pain. How do I stop straining so my anus can heal?

Stool softeners: The straining irritates the anal tissue - the stool is probably a bit too firm. So you need to take something to make it a bit softer. If one of these work - then a little daily is better than intermittent use. And yes, daily use is ok. Mom, glycolax, stool softeners, and even prunes are ok. Dulcolax and senna herbal agents are not - they cause the colon to become addicted to their regular use. ...Read more

Herpes or anal fissures? 2 tears on anus. No other sores and no anal sex. Terrified I contracted an std after a one night stand 8 mths ago. Scared!

Herpes or anal fissures? 2 tears on anus.  No other sores and no anal sex.  Terrified I contracted an std after a one night stand 8 mths ago.  Scared!

Herpes unlikely: Herpes can mimic anal fissure or "tear", but usually it does not. If you had acquired herpes during the exposure 8 months ago, you probably would have had typical blisters, sores, etc at the site(s) of exposure, i.e. vaginal opening or labia. But the only way to know for sure is to see a doctor. Do it ASAP, before the fissures start to heal, for accurate HSV testing if s/he recommends it. ...Read more
