Like material that functions to moisten and protect inner body surfaces.

The free slime of the mucous membranes, composed of secretion of the glands, various salts, ...Read more
Mucus on stool: Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome, with or without pain. Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, rectal dysfunction, infection, &even from secretory villous tumors of the rectum, among others. ...Read more
Perhaps...: Enemas are almost never used in my pediatric practice, so the 1st concern is what triggered the need for an enema? I would never recommend an enema for your child unless specifically ordered by your pediatrician. The type of enema used may have caused the mucous--or perhaps this mucous was due to the irritant effect of whatever made the use of an enema necessary. If bloody, call your doctor now. ...Read more
I took a fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) and an hour later I went to release my bowels and I saw I had mucus mixed in with my stool. Should be concerned?
Terrible constipation for quite some time. Can't go unless use mag citrate or enemas. Now have small black stool with mucus. Colonoscopy on wed?
Right idea; see GI: You could have Constipation predominant IBS or an inflammatory problem of the bowel causing possible blood and/or mucus to appear. Let a Gastroenterologist (GI) interview you and assess your risk factors. It sound like a Colonoscopy is a good idea, but that test should be done once it is clear what diagnoses you are trying to rule out (especially at your young age). Good luck. ...Read more
Was given an enema at e.R. Before noon today, after taking magnesium citrate without success. I am now pooing bloody mucus at 9 p.M. Please help.
Last bm was 2/4. Dr prescribed laxative and it did not work. Just used an enema and bm was enema fluid & blood tinged white mucus. What else can I do?
Daily fiber...: Make sure you have adequate fiber and fluid intake. Metamucil or similar 1-2 times daily with a full glass of water is a good start along with regular exercise. If this does not help then MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) 1 capful in a glass of water 1-2 times daily would be next. If this does not work you should see your doctor. If you have blood in your stool, vomiting or weight loss you should see your doctor. ...Read more
White opaque clear slime/mucus came out whn I farted while peeing. Had a saline enema the night before. Slime had slight fishy smell.
Mucus: This mucus secretion was most likely the result of mild irritation/inflammation brought on by the enema that you administered. It's a benign reaction and should subside without any treatment. If constipation is a persistent and definite change in your usual bowel pattern, consult your physician for evaluation. ...Read more
I gave myself an enema I am now having bright red bloody mucus being eliminated. Do I need to worry?
Yes.: Go to the ER now. You may have perforated your rectum or injured an artery. This needs immediate attention even if it is not painful. You may have something as simple as hemorrhoids but if you did injure the rectum that can be potentially very serious, even life threatening. If you felt resistance when introducing the enema but continued despite that resistance you likely suffered trauma. ...Read more
I gave myself an enema yesterday. Later in day bloody mucus. I have not had a bowel movement today. Problem?
Bloody mucus: Bloody mucus may be seen in proctitis, irritable bowel syndrome (mucus colitis) or inflammatory bowel disease. Apparently you have constipation. Adequate fluid intake and good fiber intake are important. If you have no urge to have a bm, taking something like senokotS daily may be an effective ...Read more

Bm 2/4. Take miralax (polyethylene glycol) daily w/ colace. Dr prescribed laxative did not help and w/ enema just got out blood tinged mucus? Appt tomorrow.
See Doctor...: I'm glad you are going to see your doctor tomorrow. It sounds like you are struggling with constipation and have tried MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) + colace stool softner and a enema without results. The blood tinged mucous is probably from enema tip trauma to the rectal walls. In the meantime i'd suggest you drink a chilled bottle of magnesium citrate followed by a few glasses of water. Good luck. ...Read more
Been constipated days. Using enemas, laxatives, eating high fiber foods, etc. Don't help. When I poop there's mucus. And there's back and rib pain.
Hi. Welcome to Healthtap, I'm Dr. Ivy Fisher, pedi MD.
Water flush (48-64 ozs/d) helps along with Miralax at bedtime until better. The distention can cause pain in
back/abdomen. It could be a different problem if you
have been active and strained back, abdominal rectus
muscles. Advil for pain. Lots of fruits, prune Juice,
green leafy vegetables. If further problems arise: fever, pain, emesis- appt ...Read more
I have not a normal poop for a week. I took many aids as well as an enema. I am cramping, a low grade fever, and pooping mucus. Uninsured & unemployed?
You need help: A week is starting to be a long time & you are having symptoms. The fever is the most concerning. You need medical attention. Hopefully there is a free (Salvation Army?) or some kind of clinic where you can go. You need a rectal exam and evaluation for obstruction. Continue drinking lots of water...warm/hot if possible. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) may help. You need to go in TODAY! Good luck! ...Read more
Have excessive mucus in my stool today. Solid BM. No pain or blood. 2 BM when usually 1 BM. Once only mucus no BM. Concerning?
I'm getting a stool sample done, I've had mucus in my stool and I've been going a lot more like 4 times a day, also sometimes a little blood?
Gastroenterologist: Blood in stool is abnormal and irrespective of further stool blood tests, some investigation is needed. There may be a simple explanation like anal fissure or hemorrhoids. However if these aren't found, testing for inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulosis or neoplasms of colon or rectum is needed. Hopefully irritable bowel syndrome with mucus colitis is the cause of your diarrhea. See Specialist ...Read more

I'd get a second: Opinion from a GI and get checked for bacterial infection, ibs, inflammatory bowel disease/ibd such as crohn's disease &ulcerative colitis. http://m.wisegeek.

For 4 years on & off, I've noticed small amounts of mucus in my stool. I started to track it recently-mucus is only on first exited part of stool. Why?
See a GI doctor: If you have other symptoms go and get examined, if this is really mucous, it is probably coming from the rectal mucosa (lining of the last part of bowel), which is why it comes out first, if nothing else is going on this is probably benign, but never hurts to be examined and set your mind at ease. ...Read more
