Hello Flo

This is most likely from the IBS

it is probably a discharge from IBS

this is pretty common

I wouldn't be too concerned

It should be checked by your doctor but I don't think it is a sign of cancer or anything

Also lately I have been urinating constantly and their is a litte bit of pain. Could be a urinary tract infection and it happens to me a lot could it be something else. I am very concerned please advise.

I have one more question I am urinating every half hour with a little bit of pain afterward. I have been constipated for four days last night I finally went to the bathroom. I still go to the bathroom every half hour I feel like I am still somewhat constipated.
What should I do do u think it is IBS or UTI or both. What type of medication will the give me for the UTI and what can I do to prevent the IBS.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

I think it is both

but constipation can cause urinary issues because the rectum presses on the bladdre
