Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

Please get a sonography and a urodynamic study as it seems that you have a case of recurrent UTI (urine tract infection) whose cause needs to be found.

The bleeding disorder , hemorrhoid and prolapse is not related to this.

Feel free to consult me directly
