What causes white mucus in stool with anal bleeding?

Hi, I seen spots of white mucus in my stool and also there is light bleeding inside of my anus. I have been having cramps like I m going to start my menstrual, but its not time for it. Other things going on is that I feel nauseated and my stomach is bloated. This has been going on for a few days. Something that may be connected to it is that I thought I had yeast infection, had cottage cheese discharge. Not sure if that could effect this any, but it has what been going on.

Hi
Welcome

Most cases of gastroenteritis are caused by viruses and requires only symptomatic treatment, consuming contaminated foods or drinks is another common cause.

You do not need antibiotic and also not anti diarrhoeal agent. But you have taken it (loperamide), kindly wait for few hours. You can take Racecadotril, which is anti diarrhoeal agent.

I would suggest you to drink plenty of water or electrolyte solutions to prevent dehydration.

Add bland foods to your diet, such as bananas, toast, oatmeal and rice in small amounts every couple of hours. Avoid spicy food. Restrict meat for few days.

You can take curd which will be beneficial.
Probiotics like Sporolac or Ecobion will be beneficial.

In case if your symptoms persist, I would suggest you to go to ER. Stool examination is required

Hope this helps
Take care.
