Hello!!! I am constipated (6 days ago I tried to go to the bathroom and I couldnt, only small balls of poop came out) today when I tried nothing happened again but there was blood on the toilet paper. I tried again and there is a mucous with blood, what could it be? I'm 19 years old, woman.

Hello, Maria clarisa. Thank you for writing.

You likely pushed too hard. Tears that occur in the lining of the anus are called anal fissures. This condition is most commonly caused by constipation and passing hard stools, although it may also result from diarrhea or inflammation in the anus. Hemorrhoids, also called piles, are swollen veins in your anus and lower rectum, similar to varicose veins. Hemorrhoids have a number of causes but can also result from straining during bowel movements. See your doctor if you are concerned. Try drinking more water and adding more fiber to your diet to help ease constipation.
