Is it possible to strain the muscles in the rectum or sphincter?

Anal muscles. : Yes. The anal sphincter is muscular in nature and very innervated (consider how these nerves allow people to distinguish between gas, solid stool and liquid stool). This muscular complex like others can be strained with consequential pain. Other common sources of pain with or following defection are hemorrhoids or an anal fissure, which is a small tear of the tissue making up the anal lining. ...Read more

Blood from further inside the bowel would be partially broken down to a darker color. Vasaline is ok, have checked if continues. ...Read more

My rectum is so soft?

Rectum not normal?: Hi i may need you to rephrase your question. But, the assumption i make is that your stool is frequent and/ or soft in the morning.

But, if your stool is not formed you may have a parasite infection or a food allergy and this needs to be evaluated. ...Read more
