    My anus keeps ripping

    No matter how much foreplay I do, how many fingers I build up to, my anus always rips in the same spot every time I slide a dick in. It's so annoying. It's like I can't go rough or else it rips (and I really need to get really rough in order to get off). What am I supposed to do? I even tried abstaining for a while to let it fully heal but it ALWAYS rips in the same spot.

    It sounds like there's a fissure that just won't heal. I recommend seeing your physician and discuss possible remedies.

    Well if it keep reoccurring at the same spot, you're next route is to be examined by a proctologist and see if you need stitches or some other procedure.

    My local doctor says it perfectly normal and OK to have internal haemorrhoids. But they can rupture and bleed and bleed with violent use.

    Sounds painful. Maybe stop bottoming for a while till you see your doctor.

    Re: My anus keeps ripping

    Yes I am using tons and tons of lube to the point where it starts feeling like I have the runs by the end of it. Do you really think I need stitches? I mean, it's fine if I don't have anal sex. Except when it rips, it always rips on the same spot

    I would talk to your doctor about your condition. How do you exactly know it's the same spot? Blood spreads inside the orifice. How can you really be sure?

    My partner works for a colorectal surgeon and they see stuff like this all the time. You need to see a doctor so they can diagnose the problem. I know it's embarrassing, but they really have seen it all before. They have tons of gay patients, so that won't be out of the ordinary either. If left untreated, you could end up with a much bigger problem.

    Re: My anus keeps ripping

    Most wear and tear on the anus is from defecation. Unless you're into extreme anal stuff, most of your problem is probably not just from playing hide the sausage.

    See a colorectal specialist. He can evaluate whether you have a fissure and whether you require surgery.

    Yeah I probably will see my doctor soon. I'm just agonizing over the fact that I have to wait for months to heal

    It's kinda because of my stool too.

    Because the rip is on the outside and it extends inwards and it's always the same spot

    Yeah it's partly because of defecation too. I've been taking lots of fibre and it seems to help with that.
    I'll definitely see a specialist after this

    I love getting fucked as much as the next bottom, but you need to really abstain from sex, see your doctor, and take the right course of action for this to heal. Depending on what the extent the damage is, you may need stitches, ergo no sexo.

    Re: My anus keeps ripping

    ...or at least find a way to abstain for the amount of time it will take to heal. You may feel miserable if you avoid sex for (say) three or four weeks, whatever is advised, but a couple weeks later that abstinence will be almost entirely forgotten.

    I know that's true with me - it could be said that "I like to travel as much as some other people like to fuck." I recently finished not traveling AT ALL, more than five or six miles from home, for 128 days ending in late March, which is almost certainly a lifetime record (even including when I was a kid).

    In effect I needed to give something time to heal, as well. In this case it was my schedule, because I was hopelessly out of whack on things that didn't get done. I hammered it away for four months, and I finally caught up to the point where I could leave comfortably,.

    Now about six weeks later (yes, to the day), that long abstinence is almost entirely forgotten.

    So, you said you're going to the doctor "soon" - make that sooner or even SOONEST, please. Somebody posted that if it's left untreated it could become something much worse, but he didn't specify. One thing that can happen - EASILY - is for fecal bacteria to infiltrate the bloodstream. Just because those bacteria exist somewhere in our body, it doesn't mean that they are benign. If the blood becomes "septic" from fecal bacteria, it can easily be a life-threatening situation, and it can escalate quickly.

    You may or may not need any stitches, but that is probably the worst that can happen, if no complications have been allowed to escalate.

    how old are you? is anal penetration a relatively new thing for you? what are you stools like? hard? any blood when you wipe?

    the anal sphincter is a one-way valve: things are meant to leave, not enter. some people can take penetration and enjoy it. many women tell me they prefer it to the more conventional port. others . . .

    It's pretty new yeah. But prior to even having gay sex, I did have this issue when I was passing stool. Now that I've started taking fibre, it happens less frequently and I don't have to strain as much. Am I supposed to see a proctologist or a gastroenterologist?

    Re: My anus keeps ripping

    OK...I had a really awful problem. Bleeding, pain, difficulty sleeping, peeing...oof. All with good cause (don't need to go into the details about that nite...into morning in Seattle. Anyway...nitroglycerin ointment mixed with vaseline, 1:10, stool softener (over the counter) and metamucil. If it is a tear, there is a way of surgically repairing it; ditto hemorrhoids. NOTE: My hella fuckin cute colcrectal surgeon who reached into his scrubs and adjusted his apparently heavy junk during the discussion, btw) pointed out for my hemorrhoidal issues...correction with a band is quick and relatively easy. However, you are stuck with the band, and as He said, "I think my cock would get irritated poking around and hitting that band!" Damn, I wouldn't want that. The alternative is a regular surgery, with the recovery being prolly 2 months. Seems like forever, butt...worth the wait.

    Sounds exactly like the same issue I'm currently experiencing. The rip always seems to be in the same area just where my hole meets the lower part of my ass crack. It previously has taken ages to heal up (or at least I think it has healed) and then if i open my anus wide enough either by stuff coming out or things going in, it will rip again (and I'm not talking THAT wide incidentally - I struggle to get 3 fingers in). I hope that you find a solution to the problem as I would like the same.

    Well, minor correction.

    In the US, proctologists are now known as colorectal surgeons (a subspeciality of general surgery). Gastroenterologists are general medicine doctors who specialize in disorders of the digestive system- which is everything from the mouth to the anus and all the organs involved in digestion (e.g. pancreas, liver, gall bladder, etc).

    Since this is probably more of a surgical issue, you're correct in that a referral to a colorectal surgeon is probably the next step.

    Re: My anus keeps ripping

    Sounds like a hemorrhoid which has never healed.

    If your bowels are unhealthy it could be preventing it to heal properly. Not only should you stay away from penetration for months but you also have to make sure you don't push it (literary) when you go to the bathroom. There are pills and liquids out there which can help and of course you need to have a good diet.

    But yes you should see a doctor about it.

    Also consider probiotics to restore gut bacteria levels because this will also assist in healing of the affected tissues. But, there could be scar tissue and between that and regular tissue there is a break or weakness that causes re-tearing from time to time. Surgery would be a last resort but defintely get several opinions from specialists before deciding on anything invasive as a treatment.

    Not sure about that Corny. The concept of probiotics does make some sense but many may not need them if they have a good balanced diet and drink plenty of filtered water. Your assertion of "multiple proof" needs some backing up as I question that this is common knowledge. Can you supply a Medline or Lancet article reference for example from the professional clinical literature? Regular yaourt may have the same effect but the quantity of live active cultures may not be equal to more concentrated forms.

    Ok but the point I'm getting at here Giancarlo (and I personally agree with you from MY experience) is that we need some medically-validated argument here (proof). Corny brought up that word and I am challenging him to come up with it. Maybe Kara also could comment (though I also realise this is not a thread on probiotics so I don't want to dominate it with a discussion as such..).

    Actimel (DanActiva) is by court order not allowed to advertise with any health benefit in the UK.
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/8305918.stm

    since 2007, in the EU you are only allowed to advertise with health claims if you can scientifically proof the healthy benefits of your product. since the EU denies any claims that probiotics have any more health benefit than regular yoghurt:
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8286646.stm
    the claims by actimel and yakult mentioned in the article have been rejected or they took them back on their own to prevent further damage:
    http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/ser...-a-689263.html

    today they only claim "can make you feel better" and ask people to test them - garnered with some confessions by celebs how good the prodcut helped them. classic placebo/snake oil. eat some regular yoghurt it helps you as much.

    there are of course probiotics that work and even used to treat certain conditions. but again: probiotic yoghurts from the supermarket shelves are no better than any regular yoghurt. there really isn't much to discuss about it. when multi-million-dollar companies cannot proof this (or fail in proving this), how the heck are you going to do it? if you could, you'd be really rich soon, since they would have big interest in that ..

    Well, there's really two discussions going on- one is about whether "probiotics" would help in this instance and the other is about whether probiotics have any particular health benefit.

    There's a significant body of research that indicates that humans have a symbiotic relationship with micro-organisms. And that these organisms provide direct health benefit (for example, in aiding digestion) and also indirect health benefits (for example, by preventing overgrowth of other organisms).

    A live culture yoghurt, buttermilk, kefir or any fermented milk product is a type of probiotic. For those that cannot tolerate milk products, the same bacteria are also available in juices and another food products.

    Every now and then, we discover that there's a health benefit to a particular food product. Unfortunately, the claims can get more and more questionable as marketing forces begin to make creative interpretations of research findings. A very famous 19th century example of this is the discovery that fiber was good for the digestive tract- a finding that gave us Post and Kellogg's cereals that are still around today. However, this health benefit to fiber eventually morphed into a belief that fiber treatments were beneficial to questionable conditions like tuberculosis and impotency (which are not related at all to fiber consumption).

    As an aside, the same marketing forces that gave us "probiotics" have come up with a new word for dietary fiber- "prebioitics".

    Like dietary fiber consumption, it's a case where a "probiotic" is not going to hurt you and in the case of long-term antibiotic use, is often beneficial. But it's also not a panacea that cures a wide variety of illnesses. And it's also not something that you must have or that you should spend a lot of money on. And aside from replacing normal intestinal bacteria that might have been killed off by antibiotics or prolonged illness, there's not really any curative benefit to them.

    Thanks for the links Corny. Will look them over even though these are not the medical sources I had hoped for. If only there was a clinical study refuting the validity of pro-biotics. But I think the claims can go beyond just "making you feel better"...there are claims that probiotics can actually solve GI problems and alleviate diseases. Though actual curing of disease cannot legally be claimed of course. Celebrity promotions are certainly adding to the hype and should be ignored as self-serving.

    But I think there is potentially a lot to discuss here because this touches on the larger topic of naturopathic (holistic) vs tradition allopathic medicine. It's a very large topic of discussion in health forums. Which is more efficacious or is a combo the best way to go or are there instances where one or the other is only indicated etc.

    There's a significant body of research that indicates that humans have a symbiotic relationship with micro-organisms. And that these organisms provide direct health benefit (for example, in aiding digestion) and also indirect health benefits (for example, by preventing overgrowth of other organisms).

    A live culture yoghurt, buttermilk, kefir or any fermented milk product is a type of probiotic. For those that cannot tolerate milk products, the same bacteria are also available in juices and another food products.

    Every now and then, we discover that there's a health benefit to a particular food product. Unfortunately, the claims can get more and more questionable as marketing forces begin to make creative interpretations of research findings. A very famous 19th century example of this is the discovery that fiber was good for the digestive tract- a finding that gave us Post and Kellogg's cereals that are still around today. However, this health benefit to fiber eventually morphed into a belief that fiber treatments were beneficial to questionable conditions like tuberculosis and impotency (which are not related at all to fiber consumption).

    As an aside, the same marketing forces that gave us "probiotics" have come up with a new word for dietary fiber- "prebioitics".

    Like dietary fiber consumption, it's a case where a "probiotic" is not going to hurt you and in the case of long-term antibiotic use, is often beneficial. But it's also not a panacea that cures a wide variety of illnesses. And it's also not something that you must have or that you should spend a lot of money on. And aside from replacing normal intestinal bacteria that might have been killed off by antibiotics or prolonged illness, there's not really any curative benefit to them.
    See my highlights in blue. I support your views (in blue) especially and agree it's the hype and "exaggeration" of benefit that is the problem. But as to the last blued item ....if there is no curative benefit couldn't the same thing be said about most of modern prescriptive medicine? Can one really expect a cure from popping a pill as opposed to just treating symptoms? I take your point Kara about the hype but have an issue with "there's not really ANY curative benefit to them".

    By all means, see a Doctor. In the meantime, I suggest a teaspoon of Metamusil will keep the stools soft.

    Well, normally this would be going off into a hijack of the thread but since the OP started this thread back in May and hasn't returned since May in spite of the fact that people are still offering advice...

    There's an argument to be made that most of what we call "healing" is more the body healing itself. A lot of what we're doing is just facilitating or hastening the process. Medications are prescribed as much because patients expect it, as they are prescribed in the belief by the prescriber that they will help.

    The difference is that I can read studies- peer-reviewed controlled researched studies- that tell me whether a particular intervention or medication helps that healing process. I can administer insulin and then test blood sugar levels to determine whether it is lowering blood sugar. What I can't know is whether it is changing the outcome of diabetes- the risk of blindness, the risk of kidney damage, the risk of vascular problems, the risk of cardiac disease... I can say for sure that administering insulin isn't curing the underlying cause of the diabetes but in this case, I am perfectly happy treating the symptom.

    There are a lot of good studies that are coming out about the role of bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract- as part of a necessary adaptation and as part of a causative agent for health problems. So, we can be sure that the ingestion of certain bacteria seems to be a natural and normal piece of a co-existence between bacteria and humans. What we don't know is whether a particular product is better than another or whether a particular strain of bacteria is more helpful than harmful. Or whether ingestion of food laced with coliforms or the incidental transfer of bacteria from one person to another is better than "probiotics".

    I think the studies involved people who have been on antibiotics and have benefited from probiotics to restore the helpful ones. It is claimed that studies also show some bacteria as helping to fight disease, e.g. lactobacillus GG and L.casei.
    As for drugs curing disease, clearly antibiotics cure some diseases, and sometimes they cure diseases which the people probably would not have recovered from without them.
