When there are pains when defecating, we may feel concern, in addition to discomfort. We may also wonder what it’s due to and if it requires a particular treatment.
It’s important to note that there are several causes. Some are not serious, such as constipation or non-thrombosed hemorrhoids. If this is the case, it’s possible to take measures at home.
But on other occasions, this symptom may be caused by a serious condition. Then, it’s necessary to see a doctor for diagnosis and timely treatment.
If you experience occasional mild pain during bowel movements, it may be to some extent normal. When this happens frequently, there may be a condition. Let’s see what the possibilities are.
With constipation, stools are often hard. Also, people have to strain more. All of this causes pain during bowel movements.
Other symptoms may also occur. For example, bleeding, which is evident on toilet paper.
There are several causes of constipation. These include a diet low in fiber, poor hydration, a sedentary lifestyle, reactions to medications, stress, and gastrointestinal disorders.
Hemorrhoids is the term used for swollen veins in the anus, which can be internal or external. In either case, this condition causes pain during bowel movements.
They are also accompanied by occasional bleeding, itching, or swelling. When thrombosed hemorrhoids are present, the discomfort and discomfort are such that the person cannot sit down.
A persistent bout of diarrhea, lasting several days, may cause burning, itching, and pain during bowel movements. This is the case even if the bowel movements are watery.
Another possible cause of painful bowel movements is food allergies, especially if the person consumes the food to which he or she is sensitive and which causes reactions. This can occur with lactose or gluten intolerance, for example.
There are several forms of inflammatory bowel syndrome
(IBS). Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are the best known.
Symptoms include the following:
A fissure is a small wound. The pain is often persistent, but increases with bowel movements. There is also a risk of infection.
It may be due to an injury (during sexual penetration, for instance) or when there’s excessive toileting. Also, according to experts, it can be caused by a sexually transmitted disease, vaginal childbirth, cancer, or an intestinal problem, including Crohn’s disease.
In anal abscess, there is inflammation with pus accumulation in the area. In addition, it may be accompanied by fever.
It causes a lot of discomfort, especially pain during defecation. When it’s severe, it affects daily activities that involve exertion or prolonged sitting.
In the case of endometriosis, there’s a growth of the tissue that lines the uterus or other areas of the body. For example, in the ovaries.
This can cause painful swelling during menstruation and worsen during bowel movements. According to research, the bowel is also affected in a significant percentage of cases.
Symptoms are as follows:
Symptoms that may indicate acute prostatitis include the following:
Cancer in the rectum or anus causes tumors to develop in the area, which may hurt during bowel movements. Other accompanying symptoms include bleeding, weight loss, incontinence, and constipation.
There are several causes of painful bowel movements. In some cases, including those related to constipation, diarrhea, or hemorrhoids, measures can be taken at home. In others, however, medical attention is required. Let’s look at the options.
If it’s a possible allergic reaction, we should avoid eating the offending food. In people in whom there is no diagnosed condition, we should observe what may cause it.
On the other hand, when there is constipation, there are several measures to take. This includes hydrating well, doing regular physical exercise, and consuming more foods rich in fiber:
On the other hand, although they require medical treatment, people with hemorrhoids can also take measures at home
to alleviate the problem; always with the authorization of the health professional. For this purpose, sitz baths and remedies such as horse chestnut and witch hazel water can be used.
Women suffering from endometriosis can make some changes in their diet, reducing the intake of fats, and replacing them with nuts, sunflower seeds, avocado, flaxseed, and fish. They can also alleviate symptoms by placing compresses on the abdomen and consuming chamomile or ginger infusions.
Similar measures can be taken when there is ulcerative colitis. In this regard, it’s considered that aloe vera juice can promote inflammation, helping to heal the colon mucosa. Other foods that benefit those who suffer from this disease are flaxseed and carrots, as well as apples and papaya.
Finally, when there is an anal fissure, although medical treatment should not be disregarded, it’s necessary to maintain good hygiene of the area and wash it with water to prevent infections.
According to what the doctor diagnoses, he/she will indicate the guidelines to follow for treatment. Among the possible options are the following:
Pain during defecation doesn’t always indicate that there is a health problem. However, this symptom can also be associated with a serious pathology.
Therefore, be on the lookout for signs such as fever over 38°C, bleeding, weight loss, incontinence, and chronic constipation. Also, if the pain becomes more intense.
