Trauma, fissure, STD: What do you mean by "careless" partner? If in anal sex per se, e.g. hurrying, insufficient lubricant, etc, and/or if pain during sex, then you probably had a traumatic injury. Or maybe you have a fissure that was stretched and now bleeding. Or hemorrhoids. If "careless" means in sexual partnerships, it could be rectal gonorrhea, chlamydia, or other STD. See a doctor for professional evaluation. ...Read more

Raped in kindergarten, made me bleed in both anus and vagina. Happened several times. Hurt to go to the bathroom. Why would it bleed? Is this bad?

I am so sorry.: What a sad thing to hear that you were sexually assaulted as a young child! I am not surprised that you had bleeding. Your tissues as a five-year-old were certainly not ready for any sort of penetration. Even consenting adults in loving relationships often use lubricants for greater comfort during sex. I am assuming things are back to normal, and I hope you have sought counseling to help you. ...Read more

Gastroenteritis.: This sounds like acute gastroenteritis - nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pains, fever, chills and sweats are all possible components of this. Could be viral or food-borne, BUT I'd think this is lasting too long, unless you tell me that you ate fried rice before this started as there's a bacterium in fried rice that can cause symptoms for upwards of 14 days. But you may need a CT scan now. ...Read more

Pee? Poop?: Sorry, it's not clear to me whether you're referring to difficulty emptying your bladder (peeing) or bowel (pooping). You might notice blood w/either or both. Painful urination could be due to bladder infection while painful defecation could be due to hemorrhoid or anal fissure. Bottom line, you need to go see your family doc for evaluation & appropriate treatment. ...Read more
