stiff anus?

This may be a stupid question but when I digitally examine the anus area it feels very firm/ stiff and ofcourse tube shaped, is this normal??

Re: stiff anus?

Hi there! Well, of course there is a muscle there and there should be some tone there. Some people have a smaller than usual anal opening a relative of mine has a smaller one but he had past surgeries so I suppose it is almost expected. I suppose it depends on how stiff. Is there any pain? If you look in a mirror underneath and behind yourself is it red? Is it hotter than the rest of you? Has there ever been past pain? Do you have hard stools? Have you had any rectal problems? I suppose you could have a professional look for hard growths around it or unusual conditions.

Re: stiff anus?

in the past ive found small traces of bright red blood on my tissue paper after bm, and also one time i did have a round bump sticking out, i thought maybe it was just hemorrhoids

sometimes i experience sudden sharp pain in the lower abdominal area but this doesnt happen very often and when it does the pain is brief lasting only a couple of seconds
