In brief: Proctitis?

Proctitis is the medical term for inflammation of the rectum, often with mucus discharge, sometimes with blood.
Often pain with BMs, but not necessarily. Common causes are STDs like gonorrhea or chlamydia, but only if exposed by anal sex. Other infections or inflammatory bowel disease are possible, but usually w/ diarrhea, cramps, etc. Best to see doctor, especially if it recurs. Good luck!
