Brief Answer:
Rectal fissure.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.

Thank you for the query.

You do not have to visit ER. Most likely you have a rectal fissure XXXXXXX to anal intercourse. It is nothing more than a kind of rupture or wound. It should heal by its own. Just give it sone time.
To improve healing you should try suppositories with hyaluronic acid, sitz baths with Oak Bark. Nitrendypine gel to relax this area muscles cam be also considered. And try some stool softeners.
The fissure should go away within a week or so.

Hope this helps.
Regards.
