Customer Question
I had anal sex...

I had anal sex and for the past four days my anus has hurt and there are some protrusions. This has never happened. It was very rough. What could be the issue?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I have had the pain for four days. It comes and goes. It burns and it feels like there is sweat.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I’ve thought that it might be hemorrhoids and I got preparation h today.

Thanks for the information.

It seems like you go hemorrhoids which can present like this. The presence of protrusion and discomfort is consistent with hemorrhoids. You can use the preparation H, it provides rapid, soothing relief from pain, burning, itching and discomfort, shrinks swollen hemorrhoidal tissue and relieves external discomfort. You can also take OTC pain meds and use Sitz bath for ease your symptoms. You would feel better within a week.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
