I have had bleeding and pain during and after bowel movements for about a month. My dr. Gave me lortisone cream but it didn't work. What could it be?

In brief: Could be fissure

The cream would help hemorrhoids but not anal fissure.
Given your age, i would get a colonoscopy just to make sure it isn't anything else more serious.

In brief: Causes

Certainly internal hemorrhoids would be the most likely cause.
You should have an internal examination with scope to determine if hemorrhoids are definitive cause and if any doubt then full colonoscopy should be performed.
