Always feel faint during and after having a bowel movement. It doesn't get better until I lie down or sometime not at all. What causes it? B/P Normal.

Always feel faint during and after having a bowel movement. It doesn't get better until I lie down or sometime not at all. What causes it? B/P Normal.

Valsalva maneuver: Straining at defecation causes an abrupt drop in bp. Although you note that your BP is "normal", it's the fall in BP that causes dizziness and it's likely that yours falls with valsalva (straining) as does everyone's. Your lactose intolerance and IBS may have caused some volume contraction - you can counteract this by pushing fluids and liberalizing your salt intake. Good luck! ...Read more

A lot of blood during bowel movement. What can I do to stop this?

A lot of blood during bowel movement. What can I do to stop this?

It depends : If blood in the stoll is red, it may be from a hemorrhoid. This needs to be evaluated and treated, but is fairly common.
If the blood or stool is darker (black) and has a 'tar-like' appearance, it is more indicative of a bleed in the upper areas of the GI tract. This is more significant and needs more prompt evaluation and treatment.

5 weeks after episiotomy i think I may have torn while trying to pass a form bowel movement. Is this possible?

5 weeks after episiotomy i think I may have torn while trying to pass a form bowel movement. Is this possible?

Not likely: Episiotomy tends to heal very quickly because of the rich blood supply to that tissue. Although it is possible to tear the episiotomy open by passing a large hard bowel movement, it is unlikely that this would occur after 5 weeks. If you did cause a tear, you would see bleeding, but blood could also come from the rectum. Even if you did cause a tear it should heal without a problem. ...Read more

When I have a bowel movement I suddenly start to cough. It only happens during this time. What could be the cause?

Vagal Response?: When one strains to have a BM it stimulates the vagus nerve (usually more pronounced in elderly men with large prostates), and this stimulation may affect the diaphragm as well and cause resultant coughing in your case. Resultant inflammation from viruses can sometimes cause this. If it persists, see the Dr. for an exam. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a bowel movement during anal penetration? I'd like to try it with my partner but i'm worried something like this can happen. Any tips or advice?

Can be involuntary: If there is stool in your rectum, some might be released during anal sex. However, the anus is made more for things to go out than for things to come in -- especially vigorously as with sex. If planning to do this, please be gentle and use lubricant. Your partner wearing a condom might ease your mind about the stool issues. ...Read more
