Why am I had a mucus discharge coming from my anus?

For example, stretching of the sphincter muscle, a flareup of hemorrhoids, mucosal prolapse, or an abnormal connection called a fistula can all produce what would be termed anal leakage.

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.
