Pain during bowel movement. History of vaginal childbirth. Mild fever. Need opinion

I just gave birth vaginally 11 weeks ago. About 4 weeks after birth, I began feeling pain right at the opening when having bowel movements. My midwife reccomended a stool softener. After a week using the stool softener, I was pain free, so I stopped taking the stool softeners. 5 days ago, the pain returned, though lessened, and there was bleeding after my bowel movement. I opted to treat at home, with increased fluids, high fiber diet, and preparation H suppositories. Last night, I began running a low grade fever of 99.9. Could the two conditions be related?
