Doctor insights on:
Gas After Diarrhea
Doubt STD: The immediate symptoms were just irritation, gas, or something along those lines. No infection can cause symptoms that fast. Even the diarrhea probably is unrelated; most STDs from anal sex would cause rectal or anal pain, sores, discharge, etc. So probably just a coincidence. But see doctor if it continues. If STD risk (new or unsafe partner), rectal STD testing would be a good idea to be safe. ...Read more

MaybeItsStringCheese: Sounds like that stringy stuff is mucus (let's call it "butt snot"). That and the gas and loose stools could mean some inflammation.If just a minor virus it should pass in a few days.

After defecating hard stools I drank water and eventually defecated more hard, then normal and loose stools. Now I have gas. Normal?
Not worrisome: Perhaps you had a stool plug which has now passed. A "good news" is that you have not described bleeding per rectum. Changes in bowel pattern are however a "red flag" to doctors. Depending upon what is a "normal" stooling for you, please discuss your recent bowel irregularity with your doctor who can put it in perspective with the rest of your rx & medical history (with which we are un-aware). ...Read more

In our clinic we would begin by ordering a comprehensive digestive analysis test which would guide the recommended treatment. As said in functional medicine "Heal the gut"!! ...Read more

This morning I had loose stools and mild low-abdomen (pelvic) discomfort when passing. For 5 days prior had EXCESS gas(gone now). Should I be worried?
Gas pains & recovery: The body always wants to get "back into health" and I think here you've proved that. Certainly the body will try to rid itself of any germs or toxins which probably affected u for the last few days. Now that you're getting better I wouldn't worry. It might be useful to try to "go back" and think of what may have triggered you off- to limit problems in the future. Hope that helps! ...Read more

I have had IBS like symptoms since starting levonorgestrel + ethinylestradiol birth control. Could this cause gas, bloating and loose stools?
IBS: oral bc cause?: Oral bcp's are just a version of what your body goes through hormonally during a regular (non-pill) cycle. IBS can be caused by stress of any kind, or by viral/bacterial gastroenteritis. Bcp's are not involved in causing IBS, but taking them irregularly can activate endometriosis by causing estrogen levels to vary in strength. Implants in the colon are common and can lead to IBS symptoms. ...Read more
Symptoms: dark loose stools, difficult/incomplete evacuation, severe abdominal distention from trapped gas, mucous. Diagnosed IBS. I think Proctitis?
Typical IBS symptoms: As you suspect, these symptoms indeed are consistent with irritable bowel syndrome. But they aren't particularly suggestive of proctitis (inflmmation of the rectum). Inflammatory bowel disease (e.g. Crohn's disease) can cause similar symptoms as IBS, and also can cause proctitis. So I suggest you raise these questions with the doctor who diagnosed IBS then follow her advice. Good luck! ...Read more
