Small part of anus poking out? Lower abdominal pain now on both sides. Just took laxatives a while ago. Hernia, hemorrhoids, or something else?

In brief: Prolapse

It is not uncommon for a portion of the anal canal to protrude.
This is due to relaxation of the rectal mucosa sliding down as a prolapse. Occassionally this is not protrusion but becomes pronounced and a marked degree of prolapse requiring surgical repair.
