I have alot of anal sex. should my butthole be leaky and saggy? It also itches when ny man relieves hiself in me,is that normal?

It could be leaky: and saggy due to frequent stretching by the penis. IIt stretches the muscle and causes the tightness of the sphincter to loosen. I would try things other than continued anal sex, as you will damage the muscle further. You are itchy afterwards because semen contains substances that make the tissue itch.. ...Read more

I realize i have a hemorrhoid skin tags near my anal, it itches sometime and it makes me scared. Will it go away on its own without surgery?

Anal skin tags: The anal skin tags will not go away without surgery but the symptoms of itching can be controlled. Most anal itching is the result of soilage collecting around the anal tags which makes patient's feel like they aren't clean and results in excess wiping. I typically recommend my patients to keep flushable wipes in their purse as they clean around the tags more thoroughly with less irritation. ...Read more

My anus itches. I have anal mucus. I get nauseous twice a week. My feces are inconsistent shapes. My weight is fluctuations rapidly. Acid reflux?

Proctocolitis?: Acid reflux has nothing to do with this. Sounds like rectal or colon inflammation (proctocolitis). Maybe worse-than-usual irritable bowel syndrome, but it's also possible you have inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis), celiac disease, or other serious intestinal problem. If you're gay and have had anal sex, STDs are possible. See your doctor or a gastroenterologist soon. ...Read more

Stop the caffeine! ...Read more
