  • It's probably just abnormal bowel movements. Was it hard like rocks? Or really runny? All those things can cause your butt to hurt. Is it cramp like? If it's, what we like to call in our house, "rock poos" then I would take a non-stimulant laxative or eat a prune or two. It should get things going. Just because you are actually having bowel movements, doesn't mean you don't need a little help. No matter what though, add some serious fiber to your diet and it will help regulate things. Don't add too much at a time though, because your body can't handle the overload. Just add a little fiber at a time. You can always do metamucil if you have to. Good luck.

  • It is not like rock poop and it's not like diarrhea either. It's kinda in between.

  • Sounds like a hemorrhoid. Get a hand mirror look down there or feel around with your fingers. If you see, or feel something that looks like a red blister type thing coming out of your butt just a little you have one. IF you do Wear a pantyline coated in witchhazel and make sure it is pressed to it firmly with good fitting panties and once a day, take a warm bath with a cup or two of Epsom salt dissolved in it. Hope if that's what it is it will help. In the meantime drink plenty of water, fruit high fiber things so you poop will be softer and won't hurt so much. Hope I've helped you!
