The intestine produce mucus which is excreted with fecal matter, however excretion of large amounts of mucus or 'blobs' is abnormal.
Large amounts of mucus when having a bowel movement can be attributed to a few causitive factors:
1. A bacterial infection or sexually transmitted disease in the anal or GI tract

3. Proctitis, inflammation of the anus as a result of infection or medical treatment such as radiation.
