  Pooping must be something that gives us ease and comfort, but pooping painfully is not a normal thing. Those who experience this must be aware of the causes of why it is happening as well as the risks of this problem are left unresolved or untreated. Reading further will give you information regarding this issue and how to resolve or treat it.


  There are several factors or reasons why you are having this difficulty in pooping. Here are some of them:



  Constipation: The main reason why people get into this condition is because of the improper way of digestion. The food travels to your digestive tract in a slow manner which is not normal. This causes your colon to absorb more water thus, leaving your stool hard, dry and difficult to push.

  Infections: A painful bowel movement may also be a result of some infections. Some of them are an anal abscess, fungal infections and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

  Hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids are caused by swollen veins around the anus. This condition affects a lot of people especially those who sit for a long time or those who forcefully pushed hard during a bowel movement. Some Hemorrhoids cause a blood clot and it results in pain when sitting, walking or any other activity.

  Anal Fissures: This one is caused by a wound or tears inside your anus. These tears can be the result of a large and hard stool that you forcefully pushed out of your anus. This causes the muscles around your anus to feel pain when pooping.

  Ulcerative Colitis: This is a type of IBD or Inflammatory Bowel Disease, this makes your large intestine and rectum swell. An indication that you have this kind of problem is stomach cramping or diarrhea. In this case, it is bothersome as you will notice blood or pus in your stool.


   Rectal prolapse causes part of your rectum to stick out of your anus.

   Fecal impaction this condition happens when your stool got stuck in your colon or rectum, thus, making it more difficult to push it out.

  The severity of the condition depends on how long you will have a painful stool bowel movement because some of the given conditions are acute or happens suddenly but only lasts for a short time. On the other hand, there is some chronic condition that lasts longer and considered unusual. Both need a medical consultation especially if it becomes bothersome to you.
