Is It Normal To Have A Bowel Movement And When You Wipe It Has A Snot Like Substance Come Out

Like material that functions to moisten and protect inner body surfaces.

Every time I have a bowel movement and I wipe it is nothing but slimy I guess you say mucus it's been that way for a long time now. Is this normal?
Colonoscopy: If no pain, bleeding, or altered bowel habits (constipation, diarrhea), probably this is nothing serious. However, mucus production by the rectum or lower colon can indicate inflammation, infection, or tumor (adenoma). Also, you're at an age when routine colonoscopy is recommended to check for cancer and pre-cancerous growths like adenomas. See your doctor soon. Good luck! ...Read more

I had to force a bowel movement and when it came out it was more watery. Then when I wiped there was a slimy mucus like thing on the paper.
Mucus thing: It may be related to something you ate or possibly so,etching structural like a polyp or material Ina diverticulum, a sac formed in the bowel. It may also have come from your vagina?

I am a very constipated person, and was wondering if its normal to have a lot of mucus and some bloody mucus come out when I have a bowel movement?
Mucous/Bloody Mucous: While constipation may lead to disturbance of the lower GI tract, the passage of mucous and/or bloody mucous should be evaluated by a GI specialist -- stool tests, blood tests, and visualization of the lower GI tract by colonoscopy are all useful in determining a true diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it normal to have a mucus like substance come out when I have bowel movements? I am a very constipated person.
It's normal: Many people pass mucus during bowel movements and it's nothing to worry about. As far as the constipation is concerned, stool softeners, fiber-rich foods and increased fluid intake can help the problem. If you notice blood in your stool, weight loss, abdominal pain or continued constipation, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

Clear anal mucus discharge 2X a week, with or without a bowel movement . No pain. Had a normal colonoscopy 2 years ago. Any suggestions?
Many causes: This is generally due to normal mucous production which is abnormally expressed (poor sphincter tone, anal blockage) vs abnormal mucous production due to infection or inflammation. Intermittent nature (2X a week) is reassuring. Presume no blood. Would probably at least do flexible sigmoidoscopy even though colonoscopy only 2 years ago. See your provider when able. ...Read more
Sometimes when I wipe after a bowel movement a light colored mucus is present. It stopped, I was constipated and now I am seeing bright red blood when?
Hemorrhoids vs. ?: A small amount of mucus (? a teaspoon) after a bowel movement can be considered normal. Typically, as you describe, it wouldn't be after every BM. Bright red blood when wiping is typically from the anus and due to hemorrhoids (dilated veins) related to straining to pass stool. OK to watch for a week or two, but if persists, contact Doc. Persistent blood and mucus needs further evaluation. ...Read more

Hi, for the past 4 or 5 bowel movements I have noticed a little light brown mucus when I wipe. No pain, bleeding etc. Perhaps slightly softer but that's it. Thanks?
A small amount ok: I realize it is difficult to estimate "What is a small amount?" Helpful that that there is no blood or pain. I think it would be safe to watch and wait since this has just been going on a few days. Worrisome conditions include infection or inflammatory bowel disease. If it persists a couple weeks, you see blood, or persistent diarrhea, see your doctor for evaluation. Good wishes:) ...Read more
I have diverticulitis and had a flare up on christmas eve. I had a endoscopy over a week ago and now have mucus in bowel movements. Normal?
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). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more
