I'm constipated. I could feel a bulge near my rectum when I sit down. Is there a way that I can get rid of this asap?

In brief: Need a diagnosis.
Without more information i can't tell if you have a rectocele, but it is certainly possible.
These are often treated with increasing dietary fiber and water, often also adding a fiber supplement such as psyllium. Your gynecologist or a colorectal surgeon can tell if you have a rectocele on examination, and can advise you about management options.

In brief: See your doctor
A fleets enema should help your acute constipation.
A daily softener such as MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) will help prevent constipation in the future. If you feel a bulge of some kind you need to have this evaluated by a doctor.
