I was just wondering if pushing too hard to go to the bathroom can cause pain and strain in the groin area. Thank you.

Well it can sure lead to other problems. My rule is never push hard. If it does not come out easily then something is wrong. I try to keep my diet in order, drink lots of water and keep the fiber high.

If your stool is hard, you may be able to assist its passage by very gently pressing the area between the anus and coccyx.
