In brief: Probable fissure

It sounds like you have an anal fissure.
You should consult your doctor for treatment. In the mean time take a stool softner to lessen the pain and improve the chance of healing.

In brief: Sounds like a fissur

If you have a tearing, ripping sensation when having a bowel movement, you probably have a fissure.
You need to be seen by a colorectal surgeon for advice on how to best manage it and get it to heal.
