The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet).

Hi, I have a swelling enlarged near my anus during bowel movement. No itchy, bleeding or pain. Is that hemorrhoids, will it go away on its own?

Possibilities...: Blood in stool is a warning sign. Causes of bleeding may be predictable (e.G rectal trauma, fissure, hemorrhoids with straining), but evaluation is always appropriate. A rule of thumb (but not absolute): black stool means bleeding comes from upper GI tract; grape jelly stool from small bowel; silver stool from biliary tree; burgundy stool from right colon; red blood from left colon to anus. ...Read more

Hi, im a teenager and for a while I've been having incomplete bowel movements and a swollen anus. But no bleeding, could this be hemorrhoids or not?
Yes, possibly: Sounds like simple constipation (eating your fruits and vegetables?) with straining causing engorgement of your external hemorrhoids, thus no bleeding (yet!). Try more fiber, more water, some exercise and stool softeners also might be helpful. If this problem persists beyond these simple measures, discuss it with your health provider. ...Read more
Is it safe to have anal sex with internal hemorrhoids? There is only slight bleeding during bowel movements so is it safe or no?
Not recommended: You should be symptom free (no pain or bleeding) ideally before anal sex. If you have internal hemorrhoids, I would recommend against anal intercourse as this can exacerbate the issue. If they are in fact internal hemorrhoids, you can consult a surgeon for banding to resolve the issue. Meanwhile, to reduce flares, also avoid straining and keep stools soft. ...Read more

Bleeding is never normal, and deserves medical attention. Don't ignore it, and don't assume its just from hemorrhoids please. Get tested and appropriate help from your doctor. ...Read more

You may be able to: Tell by looking with a mirror if you know what you're looking for. To know for sure, please see your doctor. If there's a fissure there, you may be able to heal it with a healing ointment such as Aquaphor and making sure your bowel movements aren't hard. Hemorrhoids can resolve on their own if you soften your stool and don't need to push as hard, but if the bleeding continues, you need to be checked. ...Read more
Is it normal to bleed when having a bowel movement? With lupus? Could it be the medicine in taking or hemorroids
No: Blood in the stool is not a normal occurrence but not related to lupus. If it is fresh blood with wiping after a bowel movement, then hemorrhoids can be suspected as the cause. However, if stools are dark and tar colored, then a bleed from "further upstream" in the GI tract is likely. Constipation my also cause some minor bleeding from straining. See doctor to define cause. ...Read more
