Can Anal Sex Cause Hemorrhoids?
I want to ask … I’ve never had anal sex … but after doing it, how come I feel sore … Initially I thought it was normal … because it’s not like that … but the pain doesn’t disappear “Finally I consulted to doctor and I was sentenced for hemorrhoids … but is it true that anal sex takes a big part in those who do anal sex, especially same-sex lovers ???
Hello, Kim Hyoung Gan, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the anus can be caused by many possibilities, such as hemorrhoids, anal fissures (wounds / blisters on the anus), abscesses (lumps formed from a collection of pus and blood due to bacterial infection), etc. In people who have anal sex, these conditions become more common than people who do not have anal sex. In anal sex, the anus does not have a lubricating fluid such as the vagina, so it is very susceptible to sores in the anal lining. In addition, anal sex also increases the risk of infection in partners because the anus is filled with bacteria from the digestive tract. Some other risks of anal sex can be read in the HealthReplies.com article about "The risk behind anal sex".
To prevent injury, limit anal sex or if you still want to do so, use water-based lubricants (not oil or lotion), make sure the body is relaxed, and use condoms to prevent sexually transmitted infections. In addition, multiply drinking water, multiply fibrous foods, and exercise routine can make digestion run smoothly and soften the stool so that no blisters / pain occurs when removing the stool, minimize friction against hemorrhoids, and prevent enlarged hemorrhoids.
Fluid that comes out of the anus can be caused by an infection (such as an abscess), anal fissure, or anal fistula (the formation of a channel from the end of the large intestine until it empties into the skin around the anus). To find out the cause, it is needed an examination by a doctor. Treatment is in accordance with the cause, if there is an infection it is necessary to administer antibiotics, and in certain conditions (such as anal fistula) surgery may be needed to correct the abnormalities that occur.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
