User :   i am a 31 year old male and about a year ago i started experimenting with anal masturbation thinking it was safe. i was using a toy about 4 inches long and about an inch and a quarter thick. I did it on a weekly basis for about 7 months and then stopped because i got scared. I read an article about rectal prolapse and it really scared me. I don't know if i have it or not but i am really worried about it now. Its been 2 months since i did it but I am still worried. I tried squatting over a mirror to see if my anus looked normal and when i spread my cheeks the anus opens, i don't think it used to open just by spreading my cheeks but I'm not sure. I don't think its as tight as it used to be. Does that mean I have prolapse developing? I am really scared but don't have much money for the Dr. so thought i would start here. What do you think?

Doctor :   4) Eat high fibre foods
Doctor :   You are safe and you will be safe.
User :   i did find a bright red streak on my toilet paper a couple times, what does that mean?
Doctor :   Is it first time or repeated many times?
Doctor :   Are you sure you stopped masturbation 2 months back?
User :   yes i stopped, i have see red on my toilet paper before over the years, before the masterbation even
Doctor :   THat is an anal tear and it heals by itself
Doctor :   If you follow the above recommendations
User :   ok
Doctor :   You might have external hemorrhoids also
Doctor :   So check at a local clinic
User :   is that serious?
Doctor :   Hemorrhoids may not be related to your masturbation
Doctor :   but a lifestyle problem with no regular bowel habit
Doctor :   and hard stools because of lack of fibre in the food
Doctor :   Hence I suggested them
User :   ok
Doctor :   Is there anything else I can help you?
User :   so as of now in your opinion I DO NOT have prolapse?
User :   to be clear
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   When you wipe the tissue do you feel anything soft to your hand ?
Doctor :   that is protruding
User :   it just feels the same as always before i guess
User :   im not sure
Doctor :   I doubt if you have hemorrhoids as you have blood in the tissue
Doctor :   Check at a local clinic
Doctor :   If not do not worry
Doctor :   But follow the above recommendation
Doctor :   Did you follow?
User :   yes sir, you have been very postive and helpful, one more question
User :   if i get checked for hemorroids would they be able to tell during the exam if anything else was wrong with my anus right away
Doctor :   Yes
Doctor :   Very much
User :   ok i'll just tell them about the red streak and that i want checked for hemmorroids then but its a huge relief that you don't think i am develping prolapse, i was stressing out. thank you for your time
Doctor :   Do not worry you will be alright
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me
