When I make bm it hurts there is blood soft stool feels like cuts a colposcopy was done no problem with hemorrhoid calling doc monday should go to er?

Not needed: Don't worry - doesn't sound serious.
Hemorrhoids -swollen anal veins - can bleed and hurt.
Small cuts - anal fissures - can both hurt with bm's and bleed.
Neither is dangerous or needs a trip to an er.
However, do see a doctor for an anal exam. Warm baths with epsom salts and creams like a;d or anusol help. Both conditions are easily treated. No need for an er.
Do call your md..

If anal sex is not recommend by doctors because it can cause problems like incontinence or hemorrhoids, then can gay men have a sex life?

Avoid such Doctors: Please let me warn you that medicine is a very conservative culture and many physicians have significant inappropriate bias. Any physician who speaks to any recommendation against anal sex may be just sharing their bias and not truth. Medicine is to have no opinion on when, with whom, or how you are sexual. Anal Sex is common among heterosexual couples as well. It is a very common activity. ...Read more
