I have extreme pain while pooping during my menstrul cycle? Is it serious

I have extreme pain while pooping during my menstrul cycle? Is it serious

Probably not: It is not clear from your question where you have pain but generally if it only occurs with your menstrual periods, it is likely either due to irritable bowel or perhaps endometriosis. You should discuss this with your primary doctor or gynecologist. ...Read more

I haven't had any bleeding during menstruation since I have been on Skyla. However, the last two months I have experienced what seems to be severe menstrual cramping accompanied by soft and green stool. It scares me, Should I be worried?

I haven't had any bleeding during menstruation since I have been on Skyla. However, the last two months I have experienced what seems to be severe menstrual cramping accompanied by soft and green stool. It scares me, Should I be worried?

Hormone imbalance: Severe menstrual cramps are painful. Check with the prescriber that inserted the Skyla. It maybe that you are having a side effect and need a different type of contraception. Green BMs likely unrelated. Usually due to green foods or veggies.
Follow the doctors advice and you will be able to relax and not worry about contraception and related side effects. ...Read more

I've been trying to poop, but nothing but extreme pain and gas ensues?

Pain/ poop: Stay well hydrated (at least 8 - 8 ounces glasses of water per day). Try to get in 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day – get that fiber in. Stay physically active if possible. There are a number of over the counter laxatives that can be taken orally to help pass retained fecal matter. See your medical provider if unable to pass stool after these options have been tried. ...Read more

Any laxitives that don't cause extreme pain (as bad if not worse than natural labor), is it normal to get this reaction, stool sftnr take 4+days?

Non-stimulants: Most non-stimulant stool softeners, such as colace, MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) or metamucil, should help. For quick relief, try an enema - it's very effective if you can get past the "grossness" of it. ...Read more

I had extreme pain in my kidneys accompained by nausea. 2 days later I found blood in my stool. What is this?!

Probably not kidneys: Your pain was at the flanks, but not necessarily in the kidneys, per se. Pains in the middle of the torso can refer to any of a number of organs and tissues. If there was blood in stool, and it was related, the problem was from the G.I. Tract, with which the kidneys do not intersect.

The color of said blood can determine the level of the origin within the G.I. Tract. Black= upper; red = lower. ...Read more

Was told I was cured of microscopic colitis and it is IBS, I'm still passing blood and mucus with very little stool and extreme pain, what is this?

Was told I was cured of microscopic colitis and it is IBS, I'm still passing blood and mucus with very little stool and extreme pain, what is this?

More than IBS: Passing blood, mucus and abdominal pain with diarrhea are classic symptoms for IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), either Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis (UC). Microscopic colitis is another variation of IBD. You could have IBS but passing blood is NOT a symptom of IBS. It is imperative that you see a gastrointestinal (GI) specialist for evaluation, i.e. colonoscopy and biopsy for diagnosis. ...Read more

After constipated bowel movement I get severe menstrual like cramping and even vaginal bleed no periods anymore due to iud. History ovarian cysts?

After constipated bowel movement I get severe menstrual like cramping and even vaginal bleed no periods anymore due to iud. History ovarian cysts?

Address constipation: You shouldn't be worried that you have some vaginal spotting when you are constipated and pushing hard. The history of ovarian cysts is not worrisome either unless you are having pain with sex, or general abdominal pain, increased fullness or strong family history of ovarian cancer. If so, see md. Address the underlying constipation with increased fluids and some MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) (or generic equivalent). ...Read more

My pelvis always hurts and heavy during urination and bowel movement with or without menstrual flow, late period, blood clots tissue-like, pain, why?

My pelvis always hurts and heavy during urination and bowel movement with or without menstrual flow, late period, blood clots tissue-like, pain, why?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor.
Your symptoms suggest pelvic inflammatory disease and you need to be evaluated by an in person examination.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

I'm having uterus cramping, & sharp pain when passing stool just before menstrual flow, irregular period (late) &during, painful urination&bld clots why?

Alright the husband and I have a strange smell in our poop, I've smelled it in my menstrual blood now, what could it be? We used to smoke pot but quit

Alright the husband and I have a strange smell in our poop, I've smelled it in my menstrual blood now, what could it be? We used to smoke pot but quit

Educated guess: Any dietary substance that has a strong odor to it, such as onions & garlic, asparagus, mineral supplements and many medications can change the color, consistency and/or odor of the feces, either directly through the gut or indirectly through the bloodstream. If it's been more than 30 days since you smoked pot, it's an unlikely cause. If you're both feeling well otherwise, no worries really. ...Read more

Painful menstrual cramps and having to poop but can't what can I do to help? I'm in really bad pain took pills and a hot bath didn't help

Ouch!: This is a terrible problem to have when you are on your period! You may need a stronger antinflammatory for your cramps if 800 mg of motrin isn't cutting it. We use a prescription strength antiinflammatory in this case called naproxen in a stronger 500 mg dosing. This should easy up your cramping so you can have your BM without period pain. ...Read more

So I'm on my menstrual cycle I only have it for like 3 days but is it normal that I bleed from my anus too? I'm kinda worried/scared..

Checked out: If you are bleeding from you anus, it's possible that you have an internal or external hemorroid that's the cause of this bleed. Even 19 year olds can get cancer, though, so it's important that you see a doctor and get a thorough history and exam. Most likely it's nothing serious, but see a doctor and get checked out, just to be sure. ...Read more
