I didn't ask yet

what is your question?

I have a history of bowel obstruction. I'm not having it now, but I had to use a fleet enema . When I did I have just mucus or discharge come out. I also had white chunky discharge from my vagina come out. I don't have burning or itching . I took an at home yeast test and it came back negative . For about two weeks I've had the discharge or mucus from anus but I don't have health insurance

you can get a gyn exam without insurance at a planned parenthood clinic or health clinic

the vaginal discharge can be due to hormone changes or irritation of the vagina from constipation or pelvic pressure.

What about the mucus coming from the rectum? I think I may have a prolapse

mucus from the rectum can be from your use of fleet enema and irritation of the rectum

if you have rectal prolapse into your vagina canal, this can cause irritation of the vagina and can cause mucus discharge

a gyn exam of your vagina can look for rectocele which is a rectal prolapse.

I don't know if it's a hemorrhoid or prolapse it comes out when I push. I also get cysts on my ovaries

that is why you need a gyn exam.

hemorrhoids wouldn't be coming out of your vagina

but excessive mucus coming out of the vagina like this is not normal.

No it's coming from the rectum

well, that could very well be rectal prolapse or hemorrhoids coming out when you push

how old are you?

you can't apply for www.healthcare.gov insurance or medicaid insurance from your state?

I've been applying for a month. They're giving me the run around. I am 28 year old female . What concerned me the most was the white stringy mucus from the rectum and then the white chunky vaginal discharge that followed .

at your age of 28, rectal prolapse and vaginal prolapse are pretty rare

your pelvic muscles should still be in pretty good shape at your age

you may have some hemorrhoids

but you should be having rectal prolapse into your vagina.

have you had pelvic or abdominal surgery before? this can increase your risks for bowel obstruction.

have you been pregnant and given birth before?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I've had pid . I have given birth too

pelvic inflammatory disease. I see.

this can lead to pelvic scar tissue.

work on softening your stools with laxatives, prunes, colace stool softeners, fleet enemas drinking more water and

you can go to a planned parenthood for a gyn exam.

would you like me to help you find one close to you?
