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

White discharge after bowel movement

Previously treated (following self diagnoses for pinworms)

Not regular movements, every few days

can you help ?

White discharge: This may be mucus, especially if you're straining to have bowel movements. If this only appeared after treatment of pinworms, it could me medicine related. I would suggest trying to get your bowel movements more regular quickly and see if your symptoms resolve. If not, or certainly if they worsen, you should head to your doctor and get stool culture performed. ...Read more
