Why Is My Anus Contracting
Constant full feeling and I can feel my anus contracting. It hurts to sit. Its been over a week. I'm at my wits end?
Is it dangerous to masterbate with my anus/have anal sex? Will by anus stretch? Can I contract diseases?
Consequences occur: An English writer once wrote that the anal muscles were the most capable in the body. They could decide when you were around friends/not. Whether fluid or solid material. Able to hold back or let go & create a musical fart. It was built for this, not sex. Solo or partner anal sex can tear/scar these muscles & reduce their capabilities. Any partner sexual contact can pass disease. ...Read more
Sometimes when I orgasm clitorally, 5 minutes after my anus feels like its throbbing/contracting in an uncomfortable way, why is this?
Difficult: When you become progressive more excited the tissues of your pelvis become dilated and swollen.

Herpes or anal fissures? 2 tears on anus. No other sores and no anal sex. Terrified I contracted an std after a one night stand 8 mths ago. Scared!
Herpes unlikely: Herpes can mimic anal fissure or "tear", but usually it does not. If you had acquired herpes during the exposure 8 months ago, you probably would have had typical blisters, sores, etc at the site (s) of exposure, i.e. vaginal opening or labia. But the only way to know for sure is to see a doctor. Do it ASAP, before the fissures start to heal, for accurate HSV testing if s/he recommends it. ...Read more

During anal sex can the person inserting penis into anus contract HIV if no condom was used and there was a lot of feces?
Not the issue: Unless receiver is bleeding, bigger risk is local trauma to mucous membranes lining interior of anus/rectum getting local damage and leaking small amounts of blood at same time "penis partner" has skin damage to penis. Much higher risk to transmit other way, but can happen. Test in 60 days if concerned. ...Read more
Numbness inside my vagina after a c-section? Not feeling my uterus contract? Numbness around my anus? Be caused by the c-section cut?

Consult with your OB surgeon to ensure that there were no complications from the surgery involving those deeper nerves. ...Read more
I had a c-section 5 weeks ago and I don't have much feeling in my anus. I also can't feel my uterus contract when I breast Fed. I've not felt it at al?
Sacral nerves?: What your describing is a lack of innervation from a lower area of the spine, that controls the sensation and motor function of lower parts of your body. I suggest you go to a neurologist to see what area of the spine is causing the numbness and lack of functioning you are experiencing. Its possible these changes are temporary, but please go get evaluated and treated as soon as possible. ...Read more
Sh*t + Fart = Shart: The anus is a rather remarkable muscle able to differentiate solid from liquid from gas. In fact, when healthy, one can pass gas while retaining stool. However, if you watch enough adolescent movies, you'll see scenes where someone loses control. Weight loss medication, orlistat, is well known to cause "oily spotting" & inability to control bowel movement. if this doesn't answer your Q, write back ...Read more

Evaluation is recommended to distinguish serious versus less concerning reasons for your problem as described. ...Read more

Nerves: There are specific nerves that sense pain at the anus, and these nerves communicate pain back to the brain just as anywhere else in the body.

I would recommend a visit to your physician for a physical exam. ...Read more
