Didn't see a thread specifically for this kind of stuff so use this for discussion about things relating to bathroom stuff, advice, how to better your gut, how you personally maintain a healthy gut, general frustrations if you have an unhealthy gut (IBS, Crohns, etc) and/or how you manage it, asshole insecurities, etc.

I guess to start it off, does anyone have any good recommendations for fiber supplements? And/or do probiotics actually do anything? I've been (pretty irregularly) taking psyllium husk powder but I know it won't do help at all if I don't also drink enough water. I can drink anywhere from 8-32oz a day but its pretty erratic, is it worth it to set a reminder to drink more water or should I just buy one of those giant water bottles and make it a goal to drink all of it throughout the day?

No. 112371


I use a giant water bottle that holds 120 ounces of water and highly recommend this. Keep it filled at all times and near you so you can drink the whole day.

No. 112372

don't take probiotics, even if people say "they work for me" probiotics are pretty dangerous, they can change your gut biome in the opposite way you want and you can end up really sick.

So I used to think I had IBS. I mean I still might have it but I think I’m just sensitive to certain food triggers and going to a gastroenterologist helped me with that. What I’ve noticed makes a big difference is my stress level.

I never thought stress levels would be related to my past issues (ulcers, gastritis, extreme constipation) until I got diagnosed with CPTSD.

The doctors explained to me that my amygdala is larger/hyper active so I get into a fight or flight mode almost daily sometimes with even small stress triggers, and that this could possibly explain why I used to have more of these issues more when I lived with my shitty family vs now (alone).

So if you have similar anxiety/stress issues it may be making your GI issues much much worse. I’ve noticed now that when I feel stressed out I tense up and even with a healthy diet I will have issues but nothing compared to from before. Meditation, centering and grounding myself has really improved my gut Heath. Crazy thing how our bodies work.

No. 112375

Also I’d like to add some general things that have helped me

-cut out milk and dairy besides sometimes cheese. For some reason I tolerate the thick fresh style cheeses better than sliced cheese.

-cook only in light olive oil but I still avoid extra oil in general.

-air fryer has been awesome! I can eat fries and other types of food now that I would have had to previously avoid. You don’t even need to add any oil which is great.

-avoiding red things. So tomatoes, peppers, strawberries (occasional is fine). This is something my gastroenterologist told me to do. Avoiding certain fruits like lemons, limes, mandarins, oranges, pineapples. They just hurt long term so it’s not worth it for me. If you can keep them though then it’s cool.

-adding certain fruits like papaya, watermelon, and mango to my diet has really helped me feel more regular and healthy overall.

-no coffee ever pretty much. I get my caffeine from matcha if at all. Coffee messes up my stomach sometimes. No alcohol either. I don’t really drink anyways and it just makes me feel more dehydrated which is bad anyways.

No. 112377

That's so crazy to think about but I'm glad you finally figured out what it actually was. I don't really have an issue with anxiety but definite issues with stress just because of work, and I'm really bad at letting myself relax. I've had issues with bleeding (mostly super light bleeding) when I go to the bathroom for a few years and hemorrhoids as well and I'm barely 20 years old and its super frustrating and I know this stuff can happen at any age but it makes me feel old and gross, and now self conscious because its resulted in a pretty sizable skin tag that I'm not sure would even be a good idea to try to get removed in the first place. I'm about this close to buying a bidet just to help minimize any unnecessary irritation.

I've never really formally asked a doctor about it all though, only my gyno as a one off "hey what's that thing on my asshole and should I be worried about it". I know I need to get it checked out by someone who actually works with that part of the body, its just a matter of finding a doctor now.

No. 112378


Yeah it was honestly like a “wow this makes so much sense moment!” As silly as it sounds because , like you, I’m also young (early 20s) and my worst GI issues happened when I was younger than now.

Even weird things like straight up peeing myself even though I don’t have any incontinence Issues made sense! Due to anxiety, I would either pee either 24/7 or just go and not be able to hold it in. Since I’ve calmed down and gone to therapy this has stopped.

It sucks feeling old and gross like this, I really feel you. But you’re neither trust me. A lot of people struggle with these issues. I even have that skin tag like thing you mentioned due to a particularly bad case of constipation one time. I think the only way to fix it is a physician visit but I don’t really care to have a doctor look at my asshole right now unless something was seriously wrong. I asked my gyno about mine actually but she said it’s not an issue unless it’s causing pain (in my case) but it’s definitely removable but likely benign.

No. 112381

Wow, I feel like this advice would help me a lot. I have issues using the bathroom like some days I won't pee or poop and other days I'm like a race horse every other hour.
I still deal with stress and general anxiety despite having a healthy diet, little to no sugar and caffeine, and exercising and I also have CPTSD. The fight or flight mode thing is also daily for me as well so I think I'm gonna invest in an air fryer and avoid those certain foods you listed. Thank you anon!

No. 112386


I also am the same way! Some days I pee 24/7 and horrible diarrhea and others cannot go to the bathroom at all and other days I have normal urination. I think stress is a HUGE aspect of it. At least for me, definitely and it has been a game changer to try to relax. Something that has also helped me is sleeping regularly and also taking power naps as well if I have time. I use an app for this that wakes me up in a relaxing slow way and I feel so much more calm.

The air fryer is awesome because you can cook so many things in it and it’s super easy to use. Enjoying foods you can’t normally eat is really nice, since I love fries but the oil makes me sick so now I just cut up my own potatoes and stick them in there and they come out so yummy. I’ve also made chicken in here, super toasty . I got one for 40 bucks on amazon.

No. 112416

I wish that it was more normal to talk about this stuff, not necessarily talking about poop at the bus stop but just being more aware of how it's normal to have gastrointestinal issues or how they happen. I get really shy even talking to a doctor, but my Asian friends just talk about their poops daily. I wish my family was more like that because everyone knows old people need to "stay regular" but nobody teaches you anything about that, your own guts are a secret to yourself until something goes wrong and you need to go see a doctor.

During a really stressful time I was having so many bowel issues I thought that I had cancer or even an anal prolapse because I just didn't know what was happening so I just cried to myself in secret until I could see a doctor. It turns out it was just temporary symptoms, I didn't even know stress could do that to you.

No. 112419

Had anal bleeding this morning after trying taking a dump and it's something that happens every few months or so. I also have this weird lumpy skin growth on my anus that connects to my labia but i'm not so sure if it's a hemorrhoid or not. From what I've researched, it's likely something that's not medical and insurance wouldn't cover its removal but it's grown pretty large over the years. How badly should I be seeing a specialist about these things?

No. 112425


Are you sure the bleeding is just from fissures? If you have dark stool or any blood in your poo then definitely go see a doctor. If not and its a just a fleshy growth that is causing you to strain to the point of tearing then still definitely see if you can get a doctor's opinion on it. Straining will just continue to exascerbate the problem by actually causing hemheroids ontop of whatever you already have there.

No. 112429

You're probably right that this it's an issue due to straining. I keep putting it off because it's embarrassing to me and I keep considering it a low priority issue but it might just keep getting worse if I ignore it.

I've had issues with anal fissures for a while, if it's bright red blood either in the toilet (just a small amount) or when you wipe along with a sharp splitting feeling when you go to the bathroom then that's most likely it. More fiber and water should help

Also if the skin lump just looks like a ridge of skin then that's normal, a good amount of women have that. NSFW image but if it looks like this then you have a perineal raphe and it's nothing to worry about, this happens during fetal development so it's normal for those who have it

No. 112433

That's almost exactly what I have except that the the part on my anus that connects to the raphe is way bigger than other pics I've seen online and often gets a bit inflamed and irritated. Part of the reason why I get discouraged by seeking treatment for it is because it's generally seen as a cosmetic issue and not something that insurance covers. I'm not sure if there's a connection between that and all the general straining problems I have. Anyways, more reason to just suck it up and finally go to the doctor about it.

No. 112436

You could also have a hemorrhoid where it connects to the anus as well but it can't hurt to ask a doc just to be sure. If you think it's a hemorrhoid pick up some prep H and up your fiber intake and that might help in the meantime, also don't spend more time on the toilet than you need to, straining and sitting too long can definitely contribute to hemorrhoids.

No. 114291

apologies for necro, but i suppose this relates to this thread as it's to do with assholes (insecurity i guess?). Do any anons wax/shave or generally move hair from their asses? I honestly never heard of this or thought about it until a friend of mine mentioned she shaves, and other people have mentioned getting it waxed. Is this common? Does anyone have any experience getting it done?

No. 114321

I shaved my asshole area a few times, I didn't like it. The area felt really moist and it got itchy after a while. The upkeep isn't worth it.

No. 114328

For me it‘s the complete opposite of what >>114321 said.

I used to ignore my butthole but ever since I found out I like when my bf does stuff to my butthole, shaving it together with everything else has become mandatory. I love the smooth feeling and it’s not an effort that’s worth mentioning to me.
I also never got a moist feeling or itching. I have to admit though that this area is a lot more prone to razor burn, so that can be a problem (but I can avoid it by using coconut oil and disinfecting my razor).

For the few ppl that I’ve talked to about it, it’s 50/50. Some do it, some think it’s unnecessary.

I personally only do it because I enjoy the soft feeling of it. Never felt insecure about it or anything. Insecurity or pressure from your boyfriend/friends/media should never be the reason for you to shave. If you don’t feel comfortable, don’t do it.

No. 114339

Did it for years but now I don't bother. It's only a few hairs and it's not worth getting a potential ingrown down there in an area which comes into contact with poo.

No. 114340

I don't do too much to it since I use a safety razor (great shave everywhere except where you can't see), but I keep the area from looking like a rainforest

I'm surprised you've never heard of it. Its extremely common. I do it just because I like being shaven and so do all my friends.

No. 115746

So I'm pretty sure I have IBS (I've been exceptionally stressed lately and have alternated between mostly diarrhea or constipation the last few weeks, sometimes totally going from having diarrhea to being constipated within 24 hours, but even when not stressed I seem to do this at least a few times a month and have been having more frequent stomach pains/urgency issues than usual). Honestly I've had to sit with ice wrapped up in a towel stuck up between my ass cheeks because of how much pain going to the bathroom has caused me before, but I also now get to deal with hemorrhoids because of all of this (I'm only in my early 20s, yay me). I haven't talked to a doctor about it yet but my brother was just diagnosed with IBS so its not like it'd be unheard of in my family already.

I used to be vegan and had a really high fiber diet, I would go to the bathroom every single day at the same time like clockwork which was such a blessing, and they were normal shits too. But I also had horrible gas the whole time I was vegan, I had a steady regimen of 2 gas x every single day I had to be out for more than a few hours and had to leave school early a few times because the pain in my stomach was so bad (I didn't use the bathrooms at school).

I also have dealt with constant anal fissures (for years) that never seem to go away and seem to split open regardless of the size of the movement. Does anyone else with IBS relate to these symptoms and would a self DX be a horrible idea? Should I just switch back to a high fiber diet and see if that helps or just suck it up and go to the doctor. I just went for a throat issue a few days ago and I feel like I'd be perceived as a hypochondriac. Should I just go straight to a gastro doc?

No. 115751

Anon go to the doctor. This isn't tindr, the doctor doesn't care if you text him back too fast, but your health is on the line here.

No. 115766

I constantly have diarrhea (i have a healthy and balanced diet) and a lot of times it's like pooping water but it is yellow and really..bubbly? It's like a wad of spit coming out of me :( and sometimes i have what i call "ghost poops". The poops are a white color? The doctor called yesterday and said i had two liver functions that were abnormal. Today i have extreme swelling and pain in my abdomen. What does this sound like? Is this something i should be super concerned about?

No. 115772

Extreme swelling sounds kind of abnormal but the weird poop is probably mucous that lines the bowels. Some people poop it out when they are constipated or have issues like IBS, UC or Chron’s.

Are you having your period at all too? When I have my period I usually get constipated occasionally with gas/bloating and it hurts a lot. I found out recently that certain foods really set my stomach off, like coconut water. You might want to look into FODMAP or see what things could be triggering you.

But overall the best thing is to continue seeing a doctor if it is really affecting you.

No. 115776

Could also be low bile levels. Did the doc go into any detail about your liver function results? Sounds like something isn't letting bile flow the way it should. That can cause white and yellow feces. Bile is what gives poop its brown color, if your poop is pale, it could mean that there's an issue with bile levels which means it could be an issue with your liver, gallbladder and/or bile duct.

But it could also be food intolerances, or malabsorption, I'm not a doc. But the fact that you did have abnormal liver function tests tells me its more likely to be the former.

You need to see a gastroenterologist soon OR if the pain is getting worse OR you see your skin or eyes turning yellow, go to the ER immediately. Call a gastro soon (as in today) and make an appointment ASAP but if you notice any new symptoms, go to the hospital.

No. 115787


Yea the swelling is really squishy and makes me look like i have a fupa even tho I'm relatively thin.

I had my period two weeks ago. They've regulated (i never used to have periods..or at least barely) since i had an abortion last year, but they are also heavier, longer, and more painful. I'm seeing a nutritionist next month and I'm going to try and weed out some foods until then to see if anything is causing it.

Hmm i don't know about low bile levels. I have lately also had bile come up my throat and shit. But what I've noticed along with the pain and the poop stuff I've been nauseous every day, have trouble regulating my temp, and see dots and overall feel like shit. Always groggy and in pain. I'm a little worried. I have no insurance at the moment and the doctor i see is at the only place in town that sees people with no insurance. I still have about 20 days until my next appt and they can't move it up. I've called the nurses station two days in a row but they're so damn busy i always get sent to voicemail. Ugh i went septic before and ugh just UGH. Sadly i can't just waltz into a hospital because as i said, no insurance…and no money.

Thanks for the information though nonnies, i will see if the swelling goes down by tonight. The pain levels are ridiculous. And btw no they didn't specify what liver functions were abnormal, they gave me the results over the phone. I've also had my gallbladder removed so really idk at this point the google results that match this don't look optimistic so ehhh. I'll try calling the clinic for the second time in an hour. Thanks again!

No. 115796

Hmm, I don't know then anon. How long has this been going on?

No. 115800

About a month ago? Two months ago i got out of the psych ward after swallowing 180 pills so maybe i fucked my liver up and have some sort of induced hepatitis? But it also seems similar to the endometriosis pain i had laparoscopic surgery for almost 3 years ago. Can rhat come back?

No. 115811

I don't have endo but I think it can grow back sometimes after being removed, which could explain the pain and swelling and to some degree the diarrhea, I'm just kinda concerned about the color of it. Yellow (chronic) diarrhea alone could mean a gut issue like >>115772 said especially if it comes out greasy or mucousy, but white poops are puzzling. Also the liver is pretty resilient, one of the most resilient organs in the entire body (kinda has to be when its essentially one big filter), but I don't think a drug induced liver injury could be ruled out, at least not until you get more details on your liver function tests and see your doctor again. I really can't say.

I wish I had better answers but just make sure you're getting back all the fluids you're losing because of the diarrhea plus some and I know you don't have insurance/money but if the pain gets worse, you noticing any yellowing, or anything else concerning happens go to the hospital. Your health is way more important than any bill you might get in the future. Keep us posted anon!

No. 116717

Should I be embarrassed about leaking a bit and having a hemorrhoid? My doctor didn't remove the hemorrhoid so I guess that's just my thing now. And no it's not going away on it's own.

Every time I’m constipated and try to poop, I have this clear liquid jelly that hangs out of my butt hole. I don’t know if this is alarming? I asked my doctor and he said it’s perfectly normal and is a sign of constipation but it still freaks me out when I seee it.

No. 116884

It will just be the mucus your bowel produces in order to move things along, sometimes you can over produce it if you are constipated. Its totally fine

No. 116928

I'm a recovering anachan, 23 years old. I used to abuse laxatives in my early to mid teens and as a result (I assume?) have had severe distention since the age of 13-14. I've restricted up until recently. My stomach will literally swell to the point where I look pregnant. I also have pretty regular issues with constipation though fiber supplements have seemed to help that a bit. The distention, however, is still horrible and I was wondering if anyone shares this experience or would know how to alleviate it? I've been to doctors, but they seem to either brush it off (and say it will get better with time) or insist I take a bunch of tests I don't have the money for. Sometimes, I'll go to bed with a bloated stomach and wake up still bloated. It's incredibly frustrating.

No. 116992

Went to the doctor today and learned I've got my first hemorrhoid. I'm health-conscious and regular (never any straining) so I'm reeling from this a bit. I'm wondering how it happened. I did have an extremely stressful week, so do you guys think this was caused by stress? Aside from upping my fiber intake, using hydrocortisone, and taking hot sitting baths, can I do anything to ensure that it goes away and stays away?

No. 117035

I don't really have advice but I wanted to say that I think I've got a few external piles due to the general sudden lumpy and off color appearance of my butthole.

I'm also going wtf because there's nothing obvious that would have caused them for me either.

This doesn't seem to be totally appropriate for the skincare thread but sort of goes between vagina/bathroom talk…My gyno says it looks like I have eczema just in the whole sort of private area and it's really uncomfortable and itchy. I'm kind of embarrassed about going to see my bf like this because I know we'll have sex but it's not like I can help this either. He doesn't seem that bothered. My main question is dealing with anal itching and irritation. It's driving me insane. I'm pretty sure it has eczema too. The vulvar is bad but seems to be sort of improving with prescription hydrocortizone. What else can I do or use? Could it be more than eczema? I've never dealt with it being this uncomfortable. Help.

No. 117328

hydrocortisone is safe for use on the anal area, so use it there too. try witch hazel, it's anti-inflammatory and should help the itching calm down.

I‘m really sorry if this question is super weird but I just found out that apparently there are people that wipe their ass blindly a few times before checking if they’re actually clean and I’m genuinely baffled and feel … odd now? Because I look at the paper al throughout the wiping process? Is that weird/gross?

Like, obviously it’s not because I enjoy looking at my feces or anything. Like, I literally never thought about it at all or questioned it because it’s the way I’ve done it all my life. And now I’m like… wait, is this not normal?!

Besides, if you only check if you think you’re clean, isn’t there a chance to miss potential signs of illnesses that come with bowel movement irregularities?

I’m just so confused and it reminds me of when I found out that there are people standing up to wipe and oh lord.

No. 117946

It may seem odd but it helped me. Take a cotton round and saturate it with aloe gel and tuck it flush against your anus. Leave it there for 15 minutes and then you can throw it out, but don't wipe the remaining gel off. Just let it absorb. I did it after every time I used the bathroom, even peeing, and the pain and swelling went away almost immediately.

No. 117972

It's not weird, I look every time I wipe just to make sure.

But how do you wipe while still sitting down? You're supposed to go front to back, but how do you reach if you're still on the toilet?

No. 117981

Different anon but what exactly does front to back mean? I wipe my front first and then reach behind for my back. There is some room there to fit my hand if that makes sense

No. 117982

I don’t sit all the way back, so my crotch is almost at the front of the seat. If I bend forward a little, I can easily fit my hand behind me and ‘into the bowl’. (It’s not really inside the bowl, but slightly below seat-level.) Some people are entirely grossed out by the idea of their hand going that far down but tbh I never touched the bowl (or anything I didn’t intend to, really) in my life.
I’m also quite petite though so I can see how this would maybe not be an option for someone with a bigger bum. Just another thing I never really thought about prior to hearing about it.

No. 117988

that you start at your urethra/vag and push or pull towards your butthole. you're supposed to do that to keep feces particles off your vagina/urethra, so you should start from there first even if you didn't pee.

Does anyone have tips on having bowel movements in the morning before work? I get the urge to go right in the morning but because I’m so dehydrated when I wake up, nothing ever comes out and I’m constipated. I usually poop immediately after work because I hold it in all day. I have the urge to go throughout the day but I refuse to sit on a public toilet. This really aggravates my constipation problem because I’m never fully evacuated.

No. 118319

Coffee and a big glass of water in the morning always makes me go.
Also why not just flush the toilet, line the seat with toilet paper, then toss a layer of toilet paper into the toilet to prevent splash? That's my public toilet strategy.

No. 118347

I hate having IBS so much.
I have a very important exam coming up and I'm more worried about when/where to go to the toilet than I am about the actual test.
Today my friend drove me to uni, I got motion sickness and boom, got diarrhea. Last week it was hot, I was sweating and of course again diarrhea. On thursday I wore a skirt, meaning there was a tiny bit of pressure on my belly and it immediately triggered it again, I had to run out of class like 3 minutes after it started, so everybody probably think I'm a weirdo (and rude) now.
I get diarrhea because I am nervous and because I'm so nervous I get diarrhea, it's a vicious cicle. I wish I could leave the house without having to worry. I constantly panic and have to find a way to sneak away from friends, class, etc to find a toilet. Had it since 10 years already.
Recently I found some pills in my local drugstore, but it's so expensive, 10€ for just 1 week, I can't spend hundreds each year…
Do you think that birth control might make it worse?

For some reason I poop regularly every day only if I have a smoke in the morning. I literally finish my cigarette and run the fuck to the toilet.
Research is not really solid on that one so I don't even know if it's a common thing. I haven't smoked for a long while and I was constantly constipated and I honestly don't want to keep smoking now that I have quit for almost half a year since if I get something like colon cancer regular pooping wouldn't be my biggest problem at all!

I have a problem I already went to the doctor for but she didn't give me any advice other than the standard water fiber exercise stuff. My stool is basically always soft, a bit too soft, sometimes the first part is hard but the rest will be soft. Problem is when I poop the soft stool is hard to pass and often comes out in small parts and I usually leave the bathroom knowing there's still some left that I couldn't get out.. it takes so long to clean and takes so many wipes because it's soft so I don't want to attempt to poop a bit like 10 times a day, how do I get all of it out..?

So I've been diagnosed with IBS by process of elimination, my bloods came back normal and nobody said anything about my stool sample. I've been getting really poorly on and off for the last couple of years (24 when it started, just turned 27). I'll have bouts where I'm unable to eat anything without losing it immediately, one way or another. It honestly feels like food poisoning when I get a flare up because of the insane nausea and retching. I used to get cramps and bloating really badly but they're secondary to the nausea and diarrhoea/occasional vomiting now. There's a loose correlation between stress and flares but sometimes it just kicks up for no reason. Raw onion makes me ill during a flare but otherwise FODMAP hasn't done much to ease my symptoms.
I guess I'm just asking for reassurance that this is standard fare for IBS and it's not something else. I can't see my doc for a while because the waiting times are insane and you can't make appointments in advance because they're so fully booked right now.

No. 123314

Out of interest, you said you had IBS between 20 and 30, does this mean you stopped experiencing flare ups? Do you know why?

Also, I forgot to mention that I keep getting feverish when it's really bad. I don't know if that's normal either.

No. 123329

Well it can't be my diet.. Do you also get that problem of not being able to pass that soft stool or not..? I don't understand what that could be or how to fix it

No. 123336

I stopped having symptoms a year ago right after I got out of an abusive relationship and once I'd moved out of a big city and to a small town. I've had generalised and social anxiety forever so anxiety was the cause of mine and I needed a huge lifestyle change more than a diet change personally

The vomiting and fever are not ibs symptoms I've ever heard of, makes you think of an immune system reaction, some autoimmune disorders cause bouts of vomiting

Wipe, bidet, and then pat dry.

No. 123384

Nta but there’s usually no bidets in North America which sucks

After wiping until there’s no brown stains left, I use non scented soap and wash front and back. Only the outer skin at the front (never put soap inside your vag). At the back, spread cheeks apart and get the crack/hole with soap and water using your hands. I use the bathtub faucet and squat to get the most water down there (I literally put my crack in the water stream) Showers are unfortunately undetachable where I’m from but if you have a detachable showerhead aim for the lower parts of your body after lathering with soap. Idek if this is the proper way or if it’s bad for but that was the way I was taught

No. 123385

you can buy a cool "portable bidet". i have one called the washlet by a japanese brand. it nice.

No. 123430

After a dry wipe I wipe some TP that's wet with a bit of warm water, then pat dry. I like the idea of wet wipes but they will clog and don't actually dissolve no matter what the package says. I saw someone on reddit say they spread their ass before they poo to minimise stickage but that only applies if your're thicc

Gonna have to get one of those. Why aren't bidets popular in North America? They make so much sense and they're not unpleasant to use

I understand and relate so much. Everytime I must leave the house, the only thing I can think about is my ibs. Lately its been so bad I end up barely eating hoping that way I wont have a flare up.
Also lots of times I end up not going to class or coming back earlier. And it sucks because people dont know whats going on, and assume I'm lazy or dont care.
I believe birth control actually helps in a way. Without it felt worse for me at least.

No. 125230

Sorry if this isn't super relevant to anything, but would like a little squeeze bottle of a cleanser that you could sorta spread or spray onto toilet paper be a decent idea?

I was thinking about baby wipes and flushable wipes and how they don't really break down as easily as toilet paper–which can lead to clogs–and how useful it is to feel a lot fresher when I end up not as clean as I hope to be
Would this be a good idea or would I just be a weirdo?
Like, even if I'm just carrying it in a purse

No. 125257

Sorry for grossness but in the last year or so I've started using flushable wipes (though I know they're bad) cos cleaning after I poop has gone from a 2/3 wipe job to a 10 or more wipe job… and dry paper isn't sufficient. I don't even know what the cause could be cos while I have a history of IBS I've actually found my cramps have stopped and for the first time in a long time I have a once a day routine.. it's just the clean job that leaves me feeling gross. Anyone else dealt with this?

No. 125329

For travel, I just carry little Summer's Eve wipes (I can't find individual baby wipes) around and throw them in the trash.
Either don't flush them, or consider a handheld bidet. Wipe to remove bulk before using the bidet and then dry off with paper towels. A portable handheld bidet is around $10 on amazon and you can just fill it from your bathroom sink. It saves a lot of time and you'll feel so clean.

Does anyone have any experience with enemas? Everything I’ve found from a cursory google search is fairly clinical and I’d like to hear something more anecdotal, if only to make me feel less weird about actually doing one.

No. 125633

I don't know of any specific educational anecdotes but I got an enema a week ago so I could try anal
It's pretty straightforward, you lie down (hopefully you have a clean rug so you're not on the cold floor), you insert the application device, and then squeeze away
The specific one I had was premixed, so there are probably cheaper ones that need a bit of work, but other than that, I would say get a pillow and bring your phone because it's not like an instant thing
I didn't actually feel the liquid going in until I was halfway done, but I'd definitely try to make sure the application device (sometimes it's just a bottle with slightly lubed tip) is inside just deep enough to where it won't spill out
But after a few minutes, and the enema you buy will probably be more specific about how long you have to wait, you should feel it coming back out
Then you just poop for 20 minutes–it's not like a constant stream, it's a lot at first and then a little bit at a time every few minutes
Stay as long as you feel comfortable, I ended up staying for 30 to 40 minutes until my body felt that I was completely empty, so definitely bring a magazine if you don't want to use your phone

Hope that was good enough

My main bit of advice would be to stay on the toilet for longer than you'd expect, getting all the water out can take a while and you don't want to discover you've left some in, set plenty of time aside

I don't know if you're doing it for sex related reasons? but I did it twice for that reason and felt so fed up and unsexy after the water-shitting session that it put me off enjoying it afterwards

Found capsules but the description says it makes your stool softer, that only seems to make wiping worse? My issue with my stool is that even when it's soft it refuses to come out, usually I have to wait until I really have to poop and then a big part will come out but afterwards there will be some left and I can only get one really small part out every 10 minutes and with a lot of effort. I know pushing is not healthy but if I don't push I don't poop. Wiping is a pain because the stool is soft and there's still some left afterwards every time..

Years ago I got a hemorrhoid from stress and straining on the rim of the anus. Throughout the years it's swelled up and deflated depending on my lifestyle but it NEVER truly goes away. A normal anus usually has many tightly coiled folds but because of the hemorrhoid one is always slightly inflated. It doesn't hurt or give me problems but it's a very big insecurity of mine.

Everybody, even doctors tells me to leave it alone and that it doesn't matter but I hate it. I want to have a normal looking butthole. Does anyone else have this? Is there any way to make this pile just go away and have the anus look like it did before?

My current partner isn't into anal sex, but eventually I would like to have it and I'm nervous it's gonna hurt or swell as a result, or turn my partner off from having anal to begin with.

I brought some Preparation H, but I haven't started applying it 3 times a day yet.
If that doesn't work to get rid of it all together/keep the swelling down forever, I was considering treating myself to hemorrhoid banding, however I'm terrified of doctors and not sure I could justify a medical procedure because I don't like how my butthole looks…

Tried it out & it works a bit until the next shit or whatever. I always find myself fingering my asshole real quick before sex with my bf because I’m insecure. I’m almost positive he’s aware of it due to the fact that we’re into ass stuff, but he hasn’t commented on the issue.
Lately it’s been deflated & less of an issue due to watching my diet, straining less & treating the hemmy with witch hazel.
One tip given to me by a gay friend (gay guys have the best advice on this issue I swear) is to soak a cotton ball or wipe in witch hazel & tuck in in your ass cheeks right up on the anus & let that chill for a bit. It actually has helped reduce!

I only poop every 2-3 days, it’s usually very firm and therefore I barely have to wipe.

The only downside is that I tend to get hemorrhoids, even tough I don’t even press hard and bowel movements take me about 2 minutes tops.

Now the solution to that seems to be not to constipated, duh. But the thing is that whenever I get looser stool it becomes a (literal) pain in the ass. It always feels like acidic diarrhea and I’ll need just as much paper as the other anons itt. I always read about how fiber makes your poops so easy to clean, apparently, but I just can’t relate.

I sympathise with anons talking about their hemorrhoids. I have them and I hate them. it's been down to my ibs and straining on the toilet and now I have these two external hemms. I know people talk about them hurting but mine never did, they just looked fucking ugly. I'm glad I have no bf because I know I'd be so ashamed of him seeing them.

I'm only really posting this because recently one of them has been bleeding. ugh it's awful. It sucks because I'll use the toilet and whatever healing the 'cut' has done since my last time is just ruined cause it's stretches the lil scab/healing open again. this is so gross, I'm sorry.

I'm going to try and up my fibre and stay away from foods I know give me ibs flareups. in the past when I've eaten well the hemms have 'deflated' so hopefully I can get there again.

i wash all my clothes and bedding with antibacterial cleaning agents on a hot wash so it's not my clothes either.
this is the only combo of things that gives me a remotely inoffensive pussy after years of trial and error - i've tried washing with mild soap and water, tried shaving/not shaving, i always wear natural fibres, i've tried changing my diet, i've been to the doctor.
my pussy just smells bad. i can smell it through my clothes after a particularly exerting day. i've never smelt anybody else's pussy though so maybe it's more about being hypersensitive? i don't know.
i DO know that i'm tired of trite advice that's like "it's a pussy, we've all got unique smells, it's not supposed to smell like a tropical paradise" - bitch i know! i just want it to stop smelling like metallic trash! thanks!

Sorry I wasn't clear, I mean eating a diet with more acidic foods. What you eat can influence the PH levels of your urine and vagina. A vagina should be slightly acidic, if it isn't too much bacteria grows and this can cause it to have a strong smell without being a full on infection.

If it's happening at your significant others place I would think that you could be open about the issue.

My last ex used alot of toilet paper so he would stay in the bathroom for a while so he could flush a second time. Some might be embarrassed by that but I'd rather that than deal with a toilet clog.

I've also had stomach issues (IBS) throughout my life and I can tell you, multiple flushes is a lifesaver when it comes to not clogging toilets. I don't know why I didn't think of until a few years ago but basically, just flush as frequently as you can. It may be embarrassing if someone is listening at the door, I guess, but far less embarrassing than clogging a toilet with TP.

Also I bet a portable bidet would be helpful, but I've never used one myself so I don't know.

No. 147932

Multi flush saves my life around my period or if my IBS isn't too good. I flush after I poop and initial wipe, then clean up properly and flush again.

i think i have ibs-c or something and was previously taking senna laxatives almost every day to help me go. this went on for a month with some breaks in between. i'm a dumbass and thought that ~natural gentle relief~ meant it was just like metamucil. realized the error of my ways and stopped taking them immediately. i never gained a tolerance to them so i didn't really feel the need to slowly decrease the amount i was taking or anything like that.
now it's been almost a month since i stopped and i'm extremely fucking constipated. i'm doing everything right though. i get enough fibre, drink a fuckton of water, cardio, eat yogurt yknow shit like that. i've even tried prune juice. (and lots of coffee. and sugar free candy. etc) but none of the 'natural' methods seem to work for me.
and yes, i know i should perhaps go to a doctor in case i have some serious fuckery going on but i am absolutely not going to my doctor in the middle of a pandemic to be like yes hello i can't shit.

Hate saying this but if you're desperate to unleash a shit, sugar free multivitamin gummies had a shocking fucking effect on my normally ultra constipated bowels

Other than that I have always been insanely constipated, like could go weeks at a time without anything happening if I left it. My doctor prescribes me a ton of macrogol very regularly otherwise I'd never shit a day in my life. They're fine with me taking it long term bc shit sexual experiences make me extremely hesitant to get my ass poked by a doc to see what's going on. (It's sure as fuck not good though and I desperately need to move forward on that.) You don't want to let this go on too long anon because some day soon your stomach will go nuts like mine occasionally does and the pain for 24hours is unbearable, on par with childbirth.

Girls with a really, really hairy ass crack, how do you deal with it?

On one hand I don't really care because I can keep my ass clean without shitstains and dingleberries or wtv. On the other hand I know I have too much hair for a normal woman (even for my ethnicity) and I think I should get rid of it because it's perceived as gross.

I don't want to shave because I don't want stubble in my ass crack, but I'm ashamed of showing my butthole in order to get it lasered off. I thought of waxing myself, but I'm prone to ingrows and don't want them so near the poop chute. What to do?

No. 149069

I view it the same way I view armpit hair..if it is totally acceptable for men to have hair there without having their hygiene constantly questioned then we should be no different. If you're keeping yourself clean I don't see the issue.

But if you want to, shaving does seem to be the only option that isn't stupidly painful. I don't even know if asshole lasering exists? I imagine the area is too senstive for lasering. But IME the issue of shaving/stubble irritation goes away after a while. Your skin becomes less sensitive after the first few shaves.

No. 149073

Just leave it anon. As long as you are clean and hygienic, what does it matter? I used to shave there then I realised I was doing it to please someone else and thinking about what they might think of it. Then I stopped caring. I also read that it can be risky shaving around your arse area because of ingrowns and the potential for shit bacteria to get into them/any grazes through wiping/general toilet activity. It can cause infections and a friend of mine ended up with an ingrown cyst growing inside of her skin and it ruptured, leaving her with a nearly 1 inch deep scar where they had to take the tissue out. It just isn't worth it. Carry on being hairy and keep clean.

I used to very carefully trim in the shower with nail scissors until I decided that if I did that for several decades I was guaranteed to end up in hospital with scissors up my ass eventually. Now I just have an electric razor set to a super low guard, works fine.

I’ve been thinking about getting a portable bidet but I have questions…
I’ve never used any sort of bidet before, so please don’t judge.

So, basically, how would I use it? I’ve seen a couple of videos but all they ever say is ‘just point it at your bits and squirt and you’ll be clean!’ which … idk, I don’t feel like lightly splashing water at my asshole will really clean it all the way? Do I wipe first? But then again I’ve seen a couple of people on YT/IG who use it without any toilet paper.

I’m also kinda worried about having the water run over my vag? How would I prevent that?

No. 150404

It depends, some people clean themselves with paper before and after. I personally go straight to the bidet and yes, it does clean everything. I don't know how portable bidets work, in my country we have bidets in every single bathroom and it's literally a tap, the water just goes up, and you can regulate how high/strong it can go and the temperature.
And to prevent the water running over your vag you have to stick your butt just a little bit, go over the tap subtly, and not go hard on the water stream (by regulating it). After that I just dry myself with paper
I hope I was able to explain myself

My personal recommendation is just to get over your embarrassment and laser it if you have the funds. Keep in mind, being especially hairy, you’ll probably have to get it done anywhere from 8-10 times to get it mostly gone forever. Also, if your hair and skin doesn’t have high contrast (light skin and dark hair), it will not be as effective.

I’ve gotten a full Brazilian laser about 6x at this point. I’m not super consistent with it, so it’s been over the course of a few years. If I let everything grow out now, it takes about 4 months to reach less than a cm in length, the hair is baby fine, and I have 1/6th of the hair I started out with. Not sure if the regrowing still happens because of my inconsistency or because of my hair color (medium-dark brown). My husband has also done the same amount of laser in the same spots, but his hair (black) literally never grows back now.

By the way, if showing the nurse your hairy butthole is the source of your embarrassment, know that you’re usually asked to shave everything as well as possible beforehand. If you miss a spot, they can usually touch it up, but they can’t laser with hair in the way.

No. 150432

To add one other piece of advice, I would probably recommend trying to find a place that has a more medical setting vs a casual/spa setting. They may not be as trained in checking the state of your skin, and their laser machines may be weaker.

The country I live in is fairly homogenous and I generally hear good reviews about laser overall. I’m not sure if the bad reviews I see from English speaking countries are due to wider variations in skin/hair color or shittier machines. Just something to keep in mind before you drop money on it.

I have IBS and the two things that have been huge livesavers for me was cutting out dairy and eggs out of my life, and taking a prebiotic (inulin specifically) whenever my gut biome gets out a whack. The brand I use is NUE co, it's pricey but cheaper versions that actually make your IBS worst. Also I've hear if you a very high sugar/simple carb diet any Inulin will make your IBS worst because it acts as food for bacteria; it can feed your good bacteria but it will also feed your bad bacteria if you have too much.

So I've had chronic constipation all my life, literally since I was in diapers. It sucks so bad to walk around with a bloated feeling 80% of the time. My stomach is naturally pretty flat but that's only visible the first two or three days after my last bowel movement. I can't plan outfits in advance because whether or not I feel pretty in a tight dress depends on the last time I was able to shit.
Last month I went to a sauna with a friend and I was so stressed out about whether I'd be bloated there or not, since I'd have to be naked all day. It seriously fucks with my life. Very occasionally if it's a day where I absolutely want to look and feel good I'll take laxatives the night before, but those give me stomachaches from hell for about three hours before working so that's not an ideal solution either.
It sounds stupid but my bf (and most other people apparently) can just decide to go take a shit whenever the fuck they want, even outside of when it's urgent, and I'm so jealous.

Wait what, is it normal to be able to take a dump whenever? That doesn't sound right. As far as I know it's just common to take a dump around the same times you're used to (morning, evening, whatever). The frequency can be quite naturally varied as well.

We're in the same boat, for as long as I remembered, I'd never have a "daily" shit.

I'm so sick of having IC and IBS. I feel like I'm literally spending just most of my life on the toliet. I can't go 40 minutes without needing to either piss or shit my guts out but mainly it's piss. I'm having a flare up as of late with both issues along with my GERD and I feel like I'm in hell.

I rarely see IC brought up on here, feel free to ignore me if this is too personal but you find any relation between being sexually active and your IC flaring up?

I used to think any sort of penetrative play was leading to me getting UTIs but after a while my doc actually started testing me (he used to just give out antibiotics based on symptoms before that) turned out I would have UTI symptoms but no actual infection so IC I guess. Doc was never very helpful or concerned after that. I've learned that any type of penetrative play is a massive trigger for it and that by avoiding that for prolonged periods of time my symptoms almost go away completely. Although sometimes just using tampons will give me a slight overactive bladder again (ffs lol) It's so long since I've had bad symptoms that I basically forgot about it being so bad..I got a toy lately and omg I'm suffering for it. One use and I want to throw out again, it's not worth this.

No. 152409

YES. Although it's not nearly as bad as it used to be, I just have to be dehydrated and it will come back. It also seems linked to my vulvodynia when it flares up.
Maybe it's a physical thing and penetration irritates your bladder/urethra. I think recurrent infections can give you scar tissue and hypersensitive nerves.
I also get thrush/ BV really regularly even when I'm single but it gets worse if I don't use a condom/ have bad dry sex.

No. 161400

My poop always floats. 90% of the time and has for years. Making it incredibly hard to flush in old toilets. It also streaks the sides which is killer when im in public without a toilet brush.
I have GERDs and stomach/acid problems run in my direct family. My aunt and cousins have Celiacs and dad passed away over 10 years ago from pancreatic cancer (non alcohol or smoking related as he did neither) little seemed to be known then so i dont know if its related or not.
I brought up Celiacs when i was being diagnosed with GERDs but the doctor seemed unphased; i didnt mention the floating poop as i kinda thought it was normal until someone pointed it out (it looks flushed but later will float back up into the bowl).
I see that floating stools often mean fat malabsorbtion; which could be celiacs related. It doesnt seem to be GERD related though.

Anyone else have constant floating/oily poop that streaks the toilet constantly?

No. 161402

My exes kid had this problem, blessed us every visit with unflushable poop lol.

He had a pretty sweet-heavy diet at the weekends (dad spoiling him during his visit) so I always just thought it was that issue of a fatty diet. I think I've only had floaters around christmas time before.. which lends itself to the sugar/fat heavy diet theory. Is your diet generally healthy though? Or are you unusually underweight indicating you're maybe not absorbing fat?

No. 161411

I am not underweight.
I think its fairly balanced; I noticed no difference when i was purposely losing weight (via CICO) and stayed away from highly processed foods because theyre a waste of calories but i will admit i was eating a lot of Salmon which has a lot of "good" fats. I also cook regularly but i do like sweets. I dont binge eat sweets or fatty foods but i also cant say no to a few pieces of chocolate or a couple cookies. I do eat nuts as a snack often as well which are often higher fat.

I dont have a deep fryer and almost always measure out the oil i use to grease the pan when i cook meats. I also dont order fast food or take out all that often; especially compared to americans.

No. 161419

Just a tip for the streaks, put toilet paper in the bowl in like an X shape before you take a dump. It catches the poo and puts a barrier between it and the bowl so it doesn't leave a mess. Also helps with muffling any splashing noises. Yes I do this every time I poop, but at least I don't leave skiddies behind or make noises when I go. Can't help with the floaters though sorry!

I've pointed out to anons before that 3 times a day is on the edge of what docs consider normal. One doc might brush you off for that, another wouldnt. Shitting that often doesn't feel great though, doesn't make plans fun or trips/stays at people's houses. Then theres the self consciousness around hygiene and intimacy.

No. 161494

I actually learned this from another chan board a while back. It was more about sound muffling in public.

I've had experience with boils on other parts of my body (I had a staph infection a while back), and luckily my sister (currently in med school) knows how to express them and I'm grateful for her help in the past. But these are in such a gross area and I'm way too embarrassed to ask her to prod around them, so I'm resorting to remedies off google to make them hurt less.

I have major peestipation / shy bladder too. It is definitely a psychological thing for me, and my BMs aren't affected at all. It's gotten worse with age and can be so debilitating, sometimes I really have to pee but can't because I'm in a public restroom or it's too loud or something. I've noticed that if I'm very distracted or my thoughts are racing it makes it worse and I need to focus and re-center before my body will unclench the pee muscles

Breathing exercises and meditation help sometimes, other times I'm basically SOL. Sometimes counting things (bathroom tiles) or doing multiplication tables can help too.

If it's both watery and that many times a day that's classed as diarrhea.

I had ibs for years and I would go too often for someone who didn't eat alot. That and the consistency was more like something that'd come out of a baby than a healthy adult. I maybe went 6 times a day at my absolute worst though. So that's alot to of not seen a doc about already. If you have stress related ibs then your insides are spasming too much. It causes you to go very often in smaller amounts. I haven't changed my diet but I manage stress better and now my 3/4 movements a day have reduced down to one normal sized solid movement.

The wateryness will likely concern a doc. Like you could be regularly dehydrated because of it. Which would explain you being tired. That or not absorbing nutrients. Definitely enough to warrant an appointment.

Use more tp and bunch it up into a taco shape (kek). When you wipe, put more pressure on the tips of your fingers and do a scooping motion. The trick is to not have the tp flat which just spreads it around. If it's not a fiber/diarrhea issue it sounds like you may have too much oil/fat in your diet. Also I hear bidets are magical.

I don't know who needs to hear this but if you are addicted to coffee enemas, laxatives, etc. Be aware that are yoga poses that can make you shit. I'm talking A Lot. You're going to shit so much and I don't think it's harmful to your bowels. Just pressing on certain parts and opening your body by readjusting your innards is probably not going to do anything.

Anons I knew I had some funky stuff going on with digestion because I've binge drank myself into IBS (40+IPAS weekly for years, guts are officially scrambled, my fault ikik) but I found a fuckin whole noodle after my 3rd shit this morning and now I'm wondering if I should go see a DR.

Like I knew I wasn't digesting things properly because there'd be whole bits of undigested food, but I figured if I just kept on eating healthy and didn't give in to beer temptations that I'd eventually level out. But should I go in? I've never before seen a whole entire undigested noodle just chillin in the toilet bowl. I was hoping this would fix itself with a better lifestyle but I'm wondering if my guts are too far gone with traditional clean-eating and wellness and junk.

Any anons gone through something similar to alcohol-induced IBS? What was your course of action?

No. 197548

How long have you been clean eating? How long have you been going without beer?

My spouse was a heavy drinker and had the same issue for about a month and a half after he quit drinking completely.
Also, up your fiber intake asap. Increase it slowly but steadily. Drink lots of water with it.

Are you having any dark black stool? If so then go to the doctor now please.
Other than that, if it’s been less than a 3 month period and you haven’t had any blood in your stool, then just wait it out. You body is probably gettin use to the lack of carbs.

Thanks for the speedy reply, nonnie. This made me feel a lot better and gave me a lot of answers.

The noodle makes sense now because yesterday was nothing but bone broths, coconut milk, and chicken noodle soup since I've been sick with the flu for a couple of days, so I'm definitely lacking fiber lately. I'll pick up some fiber pills and incorporate that into my diet as I start feeling well again.

And honestly I've experienced all sorts of poop colors and textures. Looks like someone threw in a handful of sand? Check. Black and tarry mounds? Check. Pale/yellow and loose? Check. The thing is that they never lasted longer than a week or two , so I never really pursued anything of it. I know that they point to signs of internal bleeding, yada yada, but I figured since it eventually stopped that it fixed itself, that things are just sucky but will eventually heal. Am I wrong in assuming that?

I'm pretty early in on my quitting/clean eating so you're right in that I probably need more time of clean eating and wellness. Of all things to scare me, that noodle definitely did a number on me this morning. Thanks again for the answers nonnie.

No. 197603

No worries.

Oh coconut milk is mild natural laxative so be careful and remember that for a bit until you get some fiber in you.

And black poo is really only a problem if it’s sticky dark black like tar and won’t go away for weeks combined with vomit or fever or any other crazy stuff that happens super fast.
Also, white poo is a big red flag too.

Poop is weird lol but I wish it didn’t have such a stigma around it. It really is an insight into your overall health.

You could experiment with cutting out food groups like dairy, gluten and things like that just to be sure but most often it's ibs.

Docs will usually test for infection, recommended trying out elimination diets and if they can't find a cause they'll give you antispasmodic meds for ibs. Stress can be a huge trigger so stress management can provide a lot more relief than any meds do ime..but if you have it since childhood maybe thats not your issue. Most people with ibs do seem to either have autism or mental health issues though. They're looking into what the link there is but currently it's a frustratingly vague diagnosis to get.

No. 198127

I had exactly what you had.
I had to cut ALL grains, inflammatory agents (spicy, carageanan preservatives) fermenting foods (beans, any fiber).
I reduced internal inflammation with lots of tumeric (have to get USA grown, all others are from contaminated soil in Bangledesh and are biggest reason for child lead poisoning), until I could tolerate some things. My diet is caveman like, lots of simple recipes, lots of chicken, tons of the heart+brain healthy omega 3 fats from olive and coconut oil and fish(low mercury like tilapia, supplement selenium with several brazil nuts a day to avoid possible toxic build up, also salmon is loaded with healthy fat).
Seeds, nuts good in moderation. Vegetables and fruit good, don't force yourself spinach. Supplement the enzyme l-glutamine (necessary for gastrointestinal cellular repair) as well as making sure that your d3, magnesium, are good or partially supplemented.
I can tolerate some cheese, muenster is pleasant tasting imo and it is loaded with vitamin k2(mk4).
Sunbathing is great for body beyond getting d vitamin.
Potassium cannot be viably supplemented, eat vegets (potatoes are very high, but are inflammatory).
It seems strange to reduce all fiber, but what a science journal I read found was that people taken off of high fiber diets had improved digestion. It makes sense that we should not bother eating stuff we can't digest, we are not cattle so we should not eat cattle feed (like ALL grains).

No chronic sensitivity, pain, bloating, or diarhhea.
I hope this helps.

Also, speaking as a licensed pharmacy tech who was perscribed theses, IBS drugs are kinda terrible for you and ultimately won't fix the problem. You will statistically be taking them for life (reduce acids, body has to increase acids, can't stop because now problem is worse), and they are usually anticholinergics that lead to dementia later in life. Fix diet, return to caveperson foods.

This diet is cheap too.

Please help me anons. I frequently have shits that are too big for my butthole, causing it to tear and bleed a large amount of blood. I’m not constipated— I have regular bowel movements (Once every 2 days) and they’re not hard to pass. I eat a ton of fruits for fiber and drink a shit ton of water, have a healthy balanced diet, am not under or overweight, and don’t have any stomach troubles.
I’m really upset because it seems like as soon as it heals, I’ll have another bowel movement that rips it open again. It’s not unbearably painful but it is uncomfortable and the amount of blood is always disconcerting to see.
Does anyone have experience with this or any advice on how to help my asshole not tear? I know this sounds ridiculous but I can’t talk to anyone about this and you ladies are my only hope fml

I really just have to vent about my hemmoroids. I used to sit on the toilet for long periods of time and would strain, I've had internal hemms for years now and sometimes they make their way ouside after I've been to the toilet, I have to push them back inside (I use a finger with coconut oil on it). I've also had external ones but they're since shrunk (leaving the skin of my a-hole fleshy and weird) it honestly really gets me down and makes me feel disgusting, it looks disgusting. my diet is a lot better and I'm in and out of the bathroom very quickly these days but I really believe I've messed my asshole up for for good. the damage is done after years of poor diet and toilet habits. I feel so angry with myself for it.

I'm not sexually active but I'm dreading the first time someone sees my asshole. I don't have any desire to use my ass in a sexual way but it's going to have to be seen since it's so close to my vagina. if I clench my asshole really tightly you can barely tell there's anything wrong with it but I can't go through every sexual experience with a clenched asshole! I don't think someone would break up with me over it but it is still such a big worry for me and makes me never want to attempt a relationship because I am so self conscious about the way it looks. I put myself in the shoes of whoever may fuck me and how they'll be like 'there's that gnarly asshole again'.

I managed to figure out how to clean the mineral build up in my cruddy toilet. I dissolve it in some hot water, wait for it to cool as I empty the toilet, then I pour the solution into my toilet and leave it for an hour or two, when i check back it looks like it's fizzing and the water becomes cloudy, I give it a good scrub with a sponge then flush and it's as good as new. Seriously try this nonnies if you're starting to get bothered by the stains at the very bottom of your toilet that have accumulated because you got too lazy to empty your toilet bowl at least once a month when you use a standard cleaner. I feel so much pride shitting in a clean toilet.

I tried:
- baking soda + vinegar several times, it helped only a little bit at first
- standard toilet cleaners
- bleach
- pumice stones

What's the best course of action when your butt is bleeding due to too much/hard wiping (and maybe?? too dry skin in that area)? So far I've always switched to wet wipes when it happened, and then rather patted the area instead of wiped until there's less blood. In the end there's still a bit, but I figured doing more than that would make the bleeding worse again, so I just get up and sit down carefully for the next few hours and wipe really gentle for the next or so day. pls tell me if this is alright, i don't wanna die of butt blood poisoning

I eat lots of eggs, not much meat (like, sometimes once in two or three months), no fast foods but also not enough vegetables and fruits.

It probably has to do with the fact I'm extremely sedentary and don't eat a lot to begin with. I used to be underweight (not anachan, been like this since I was a kid) so I imagine this also factors it?

Anyway, exercising also helps, I noticed I get the most bowel movements when I'm regularly exercising, but I guess keeping this routine is the hardest part when you're used to not moving at all. Haven't exercised in months now.

And on the rare occasion I get a normal/bigger sized shit I still have to take another one the next day or sometimes after several hours.

Don't stick stuff in your ears and yada yada yada, but when you clean your ears with q-tips, are you supposed keep going until the cotton part comes out clean or do you accept a 'good enough'? I used to always do the former until I pushed some ear wax into my ear canal and had to get it taken out at the doctor. Since then I always do the latter (after removing most wax with a wet rag first) because I'm too scared to push it in too far again, but it honestly never gets really clean, and now I'm wondering if that's just how it's supposed to be.

Dae has difficulty holding in gas?

Never had childbirth or any other trauma but I've literally always had this. It feels completely random to me, sometimes I can keep it in, sometimes I cannot even if I clench like a mofo. It's more difficult to hold in when I'm walking or standing. I can hold back poop just fine (in fact, I always have to strain a bit when I go). It seems mysterious to me that the same muscle controls poop and gas, it doesn't feel that way.

I went to a doctor with this problem once, she put a finger in, told me to clench, I did, then she told me that my sphincter muscles are perfectly fine and it's the volume of the gas that might the problem and I should look into diets. But I'm not sure. Sometimes I can feel random small bubbles of gas just slipping out when I'm just standing or sitting.

Related question: when you hold gas in, do you just clench the same muscle you would when you're holding back to pee or do you also clench your surrounding muscles (like the butt muscles/cheeks)?

I can clench my urethra, vag and butt sphincters semi independently of each other, although there's always some overlap. I don't use other butt cheek muscles no.
Both constipation and leaking farts are symptoms of a weak pelvic floor, so you could look more into it.

Yeah, it seems healthy to have wax in the ears for protection, just like having boogers protects our noses. A few months ago I had my ear wax sucked out and I had uncomfortably sensitive hearing for weeks and it's still harsh for me now. I believe a surface clean is enough for most people.

I have dry, flaky kind so I sometimes stick things up in my ear with little to no problems and all that comes out are little flakes or bigger booger-oid looking things. However, not everyone has dry earwax and my anecdote should be taken with a grain of salt.

Any anons who use to abuse laxatives become regular again? It feels like I poop once a month at times no matter what I eat

I think I’m developing crohns- my grandma has it and lately every symptom i had in a small way in the past has intensified to the point i’m passing blood and mostly undigested food - to go to the doctor or not, shits (get it) kinda embarrassing

I clog my boyfriend's toilet every time I'm over. He claims that I shit abnormally big but I've never had issues with flushing until his toilet. Everything in his house is fucking broken but he just shames me and says I have huge shits. I feel so gross kek

I've never been very regular but lately my body is in this weird cycle where I don't poop for a day and then poop 2-3 times the next day. Next day no poop. Day after, 3 poops. What's up with that

He has a weak toilet, most toilets esp in the US are scams. For a country that shits so much you'd expect the standard household to not have to use a plunger for every other shit, but it's probably got something to do with water efficiency crap and OnLy UsiNg 1/100th of A GaLLoN for each flush. A dainty flush to just soak the poo and leave it there, bravo Big Toilet. The only strong toilet Ive encountered in a long time was in a federal building, so nice to know the political Zerg get to shit in peace at our expense.

Sorry for Necro and i know i should see a doctor, but i can't go out atm so i need to ask something: is it normal that every time I take a shit i feel dizzy, get headaches, shivers and my hands and feet turn cold? I don't have diarrhea nor constipation, hell, my stools are perfectly normal but why do I feel so bad? I've IBS if that helps. I've been like this since Christmas when i started taking Omeprazole to control acid reflux

Also my digestive circle hasn't been normal these days, i can go two days constipated and then get diarrhea out of nowhere then the circle restarts, is so strange

Lots of toilets clog more easily nowadays because they're made to be ~ecofriendly~ aka not use a lot of water.
