Customer Question
I'm not "too" worried...

I'm not "too" worried, but in the last 3 months, everytime I bare down to urinate I "poop". Just a little, but it happens "EVERYTIME".

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Everytime I bare down to urinate I "poop". Not much, buyt it happens everytime. NO BLOOD, Normal color. etc.

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

Very good

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

No..not really. Nothing involving my GI or bladder. However, I do have a tendency to have an overactive bladder sometimes.

Why do you bear down to urinate?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Doesn't everyone have to bare down or "push" to urinate?
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

No.

This would indicated a problem with the bladder.

There is something wrong anatomically and you might have a chronically full bladder, pushing on the rectum and causing the problem you describe.

There are other possibilities as well. Rectocele for example.

You should see a urologist for testing.

Ask your doctor for a referral.

OK, let me know if you have further questions.

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.

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.
