Teen worried over symptoms...
Hi, I'm 17 years old, which I know is young, but I was a bit worried and found this site and thought I'd come on here.
For a while now (numerous months) I've been dealing with a few bouts of constipation. They last for a week or so, and I have fewer bowel movements that are either pellets or very thin.
I've been increasing my fiber intake and so far it seems to be helping, but I still frequently have bowel movements consisting of thin stools (more than when I'm constipated of course). They're not thin all the time but frequently.
I've also noticed when I push for a bowel movement that there's usually this soft, fleshy object that sticks out of my anus a bit (noticed it there quite a while back, not sure what it is). There's been a little bit of blood on the stools once in a while (from what I've noticed this is infrequent and it's just a small bit of blood). I'm a bit worried about all this, any help would be greatly apprectiated!
