Dear Dr. Kull,
I haven't had anal sex recently, but a couple of months ago I let a guy finger me. For the past couple of weeks, I have experienced bleeding when I have a bowel movement. Could this possibly be just hemorrhoids or might it be an STD?
Response from Mr. Kull
It's not clear what is causing the bleeding. Hemorrhoids could be one cause, but a medical exam would be important to rule out anything else that might be causing the bleeding. It's be best to have any ongoing symptoms checked out with a doctor.
