Jessi asks:

Starting about 3 years ago, I have expelled on a somewhat regular basis what I call an "asspod." They are whitish in color, solid, and of uniform size and shape (ovoid, about 2 cm long and .7 cm diameter). Pathology report on sample asspod identified material as mucous. OK, some mucous in the intestine is of course normal, but firmly-packed pods on a regular (i.e., monthly) basis, all of uniform size and shape??? Doctor was stymied but says since it's only mucous, I shouldn't worry.

But I still find it disturbing. Have you ever heard of such a thing? If so, what causes it? Should I be concerned? Is there a name other than "asspod"?

Thanks for your time.




Dear Jessi,

I believe you have the name down correctly. The elimination of Asspods from the rectum is commonly referred to as "Asspodexpellitum".

One theory is that there is an abnormal amount of mucus produced in the small or large intestine, that passes along the digestive tract and for some reaon, does not dissolve and is excreted relatively unchanged.

Another theory is that your body has been penetrated by aliens while you sleep, and the aforementioned "Asspods" are embryonic life forms that require the water from an earthlings toilet bowl to gestate and hatch.

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

-- Poonurse

Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.

Got a question for her?

On Bizarre ER they showed a doctor pulling this large thing out of a man's nose. It was only shown at the beginning, but I have never shown the episode. It looks like poop. Has anyone seen it?

Thank you for the information AC, but we prefer to make up our own assinine causes. It's funnier.

found this in google ;) enjoy..

Stool normally contains a small amount of mucus, but passing stools with visible amounts of mucus can be from a variety of causes. Mucus in the stool is a common symptom of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and ulcerative colitis (UC), and is seen to a lesser degree in Crohn's disease (CD). A bacterial infection, anal fissure, or a bowel obstruction may also cause the passage of mucus.

There is no proof that PH levels have anything to do with IBS. As far as candida is concerned, if you had any kind of systemic overgrowth of yeast (candida) you would know it for certain because it would present as a case of oral thrush. So for those of you who want to waste time and money treating mysterious, dubious and unproven medical conditions go right ahead, but you may in fact make your symptoms worse (My gastro told me he sees a lot of people come into his office with liver damage from doing cleanses that their nature-paths prescribed, so be careful of what information you give credence to, and what products you try or advice you take because of it). Western medicine can't cure everything, nor does it claim to understand everything but it is far more clinical than any system of "traditional" medicine because of rigorous research and testing. You have to understand, "natural" remedies still have side effects and if taken in the wrong doses, can be poisonous.

If you are looking for natural products that can help IBS: there is some evidence that blueberries (blueberry tea steeped from dried blueberries yourself, or 100% natural blueberry juice) can help with low grade inflammation as can fish oil (omega 3, but make sure it is enteric coated). Peppermint oil (again make sure it is enteric coated) is a first line defense and a good probiotic combo (bifidus and Lactobacillus). Again, I say "some evidence" because none of this has been satisfactorily studied to any great extent.

Cider vinegar, although acidic it does turn to a base (alkaline) when you body processes it, much like lemon or lime, however, I would warn you that it is an irritant much the same way that aloe juice is classified as a harsh irritant. Coconut oil has many health benefits but if you have IBS you know that fatty foods will make you sick because they trigger strong gastrocolonic reflexes. I think you are rolling the dice if you try a remedy using apple cider vinegar and coconut oil and may possibly make things worse. If you do decide to try it be cautious and go slowly.

Dear AC ... I must question your statement that, "The alkaline quality of the vinegar helps in balancing your PH." While it is a very healthful product, vinegar is acidic (it is a solution of 4-6% acetic acid).

For those with IBS or other intestinal disorders - couple simple things that really help the digestive system are Apple Cider Vinegar (raw, unfiltered, organic etc. something like BRAGG'S brand) and pure unrefined virgin Coconut Oil (again, unprocessed etc - gotta be cold pressed, pure, raw, etc)

just a teaspoon of the apple cider vinegar, its strong by itself, would probably make you puke lol) mixed in a glass of water 2x a day can help, and 1-3 tablespoons of coconut oil. The alkaline quality of the vinegar helps in balancing your PH, and the coconut oil has amazing acids and fats that kill candida, and the bad bacteria brewing in your gut - but don't kill the good bacteria.

Ok so here is the deal. I feel terribly for people who have to suffer through this. I have had bouts of it on and off and it is incredibly frustrating. So I understand. First, mucus is something that should be looked into by a G.I. Mucus on it's own is not an alarming symptom, however, if accompanied by bleeding, weight loss, and cramping (these are more serious symptoms) should always be evaluated by a pro to make sure you aren't overlooking Crohns or IBD or Celiac (Celiac is a special blood test for gluten intolerance). Many people claim they are gluten intolerant but really, are not. If you were you would test positive for Celiac. Get your stool checked for parasite and ovum and for C.Diff (it's rare but should be ruled out). Secondly, blood work should be done to check for inflammation, as should the liver be checked. If your scope and barrium tests come back clear you will be given a diagnosis of IBS. Which, incidentally, affects a lot of people and is probably the cause (sometimes the blood in the mucus is the result of hemmoroids, or a fissure, if it is just a small amount). If you have a diagnosis of IBS avoid ADVIL or any other NSAID, as well as asprin. These will cause things to get worse. The only over the counter pain med you should take is tylenol. Next, for those with IBS-D, get a good insoluble fiber supplement and ask your doctor about a drug called Cholestyramine (Questran), it is a resin used for lowering cholestoral but it can work miracles for IBS-D symptoms. In fact it rid me of the mucus problem immediately. Sometimes it is a matter of slowing the intestinal track down and that is what this medication does. Some think that IBS-D like symptoms can be coming from a small intestine that does not deal with bile salts/acids properly and they pass through into the lower intestine and thus irritate the mucosa. Cholestyramine (Questran) absorbs these before they hit the lower intestine.
For those who are constipated: exercise and water. The mucus may be being secreted to make the stool easier to void.
If you are lactose intolerant it will create mucus. Many are incredibly sensitive to even small amounts of lactose -if you are like me you can't even have yogurt -and stay away from deli meats because many of them use lactose as a binder. In fact most processed foods do. Next, adjust your diet by avoiding raw veg and fruit. Always go for cooked. When things stabilize a bit, slowly introduce a good probiotic. Tuzen is good.
Most importantly, get checked out by your doctor, preferably a G.I.
Avoid liver cleanses and colon cleanses. My G.I. said he sees a lot of people that come in with liver damage because they have done cleanses. These concoctions are not standardized and do not always do what they say they will. They make promises on the bottle that have not been evaluated by the FDA --mostly you are just wasting your money here and possibly making things worse.
Lastly, try cognitive behavioral therapy along with hypnosis to help you cope with the problem and prevent it from upsetting your life too much. Hypnosis has worked wonders in clinical trials. You can't control what happens to you but you can control the way you react to it.
Your body will heal -that is what bodies do over time. Just add water, and lots of it and be patient with yourself. CBT can also get at some underlying emotional/psych issues that may be continuing or worsening the cycle of symptoms.

This has been happening for a while now, and its really strange and makes me wonder what's going on: I have tons of yellow stuff in my poo, and it looks like corn..obviously its not actually corn because it happens way more often than I eat corn. Any answers or ideas??

Anonymous Coward's picture

for all of you who claim to be coughing up white balls that smell badly, if you still have your tonsils, that could be the cause. There are little pockets in your tonsils, and these white 'stones' develop in there, you can watch extraction videos on youtube. they smell terrible..

The lumpy white mucous is Candida. An overgrowth of yeast, which is why it occurs from antibiotics.

My only problem with pooping is only that I don't do it enough.. =\ Oh well.... As for the white/yellowish stuff bein coughed up? It's nothing to worry about. I cough up one or two once in a blue moon..yeah not often lucky me... =\ They're plaque, bacteria, remaining food that didn't go down the throat, and if you have a long enough pinky nail and good control of your gag reflex you can pick 'em out just like a booger yes I've done it. You can help yourself by gargling mouthwash often and brushing your teeth AND the back of your tongue properly. Mhmm yes you can. If you hack up some mucous in the process GOOD FOR YOU! ^_^ It wasn't meant to stay where it was. Good riddance.

It's also a sign (sometimes) of getting sick. Every time I coughed some up or checked out my tonsils in the mirror and see a few lodged in them, I end up sick within the week..but that's just me so far.. yes I AM weird keep good distance... :|

~Happy shitting :D

The little white things are dead bacteria filtered through your tonsils and throat. It is an ongoing problem with me and my brothers and they do smell like rotten azz cheese. Disgusting!

While I am pleased that SO many people feel reassured by stories of other people's butt goo, you really need to evaluate your own individual situation. There are a ton of reasons for mucous in stool, and some of them are definitely worth looking into.

Okay, so from what I understand from a parasitology class, which makes me no professional, is that some intestinal parasites do increase mucous production, but they aren't magical parasites from your pseudo-scientific colon lady. And you can see them. If you have small, whitish or semi-transparent worms (about a centimeter long) coming out of your anus in mucousy discharges, then you likely have pin worms. Congratulations, you are the proud member of the fecal-oral contamination club. FYI, you also probably have a very itchy butt hole at night because those lovelies crawl, fly, or teleport out of you in order to make sweet, sweet love and babies.

This is a half-lie because I don't remember if pin worms mate. I'm guessing not, but I enjoy the imagery.

If you have tiny amounts of blood (should be bright red) and mucous, then you most likely have anal fissures, or tiny tears in the lining of your intestines. Unfortunately, ulcerative colitis is also a cause of butt mucous and fissures, so you may want to check that out if you have continuing or repetitive problems.

Mucous discharge is a symptom (or is it a sign? I always get the two terms confused) of bacterial goings on. Basically, something gets out of whack in your innards, which is totally a real word btw, and bacteria make little colonies and villages. They have a party in your pants. And they lead to lots and lots of stinky gooeyness. And probably some cramping, too. Or gas. Or something else unpleasant. Fortunately, this butt goo doesn't usually require medical intervention. But you are still equally gross.

There is the potential for bowel obstructions and crohn's disease. With bowel obstructions, you'll have mucous, stomach distention, vomiting. You'll also be obstructed, which is to say you won't be pooping or pooping very little. I imagine this is terrible.

Crohn's disease has to do with inflammation, I think, and is god awful by all accounts. It's not something you'll catch from other Crohn's suffers, though, so don't go avoid the afflicted.

Anyway, I'm not saying all of this to terrify anyone, because chances are you are all fine and/or infected by alien pods, but I thought it was important to point out that just because you have a common symptom with a stranger on a weirdly fun site doesn't mean that you have the exact same illness, or lack there of, as them.

Oh, and if you have pin worms, and lots of people do, don't freak. They're mostly harmless and lots of children get them because children are vile creatures that don't wash properly and enjoy putting their grimy little fingers in places they don't belong. But you will probably need to see a doctor to resolve the issue. Of the worm parasites, not the child parasites. Those can't legally be gotten rid of so it's best just to keep a safe distance.

SpottedPooper -- I've had tonsilloliths, and I still have all my natural-born parts.

Sorry to hear about your anal fissure. I can't imagine how that must hurt, but I can tell you how to heal it quickly: fasting.

Brock Lesnar recently found out how quickly fasting can heal nasty digestive disorders. It wasn't a "miracle cure," it was the lack of solid food that allowed his body to heal itself of diverticulitis. (Keep an eye on him, though... if he does not change his diet to continue the healing--which he probably won't--the diverticulitis will return or something worse will take its place, just watch.)

For anyone with any kind of digestive pain, fasting until you feel better, followed by slowly reintroducing whole natural foods over a period of several weeks, is the quickest way to permanent healing.

If you're afraid to go without solid food for any real length of time, then simply separating carbs from proteins can help relieve the pain and begin healing the damage. This one simple change also can instantly resolve most digestive disorders, including IBS.

Beyond that, eating a lot more fresh fruits and veggies and a lot less of everything else (at 4:1 ratio) over time will completely heal all your internal health problems.

Eating incorrectly over time causes our health problems in the first place. Eating correctly heals them, and about 20-25% faster than it took for the problems to develop.

Woolly poo, no I don't think the conditions are related. I supposedly have IBS, but am going to have to get a colonoscopy and endoscopy since now I have a bloody (literally) anal fissure. But I have never had tonsil stones or even any problems with my tonsils, and I've even had to have my adenoids out. Do those of you with the tonsil stones still have your adenoids?

If anything other than well-formed, clean-wiping, easy-sliding turds come out of your butt, you SHOULD be worried. These are clear signs that you are in a toxic state and need to detox; otherwise the problems multiply and get worse as time goes on.

The good news is you can fix whatever ails you, with nothing more than good ol' FOOD!

One of the first things anyone with heinous digestive disorders can try is to keep carbs separate from proteins at all times. This means if you are going to eat some meat, don't have anything sweet with it, and don't eat any type of grains or starchy vegetables in that same meal either. Also consume these types of foods separately by at least 3 hours.

Often this one change alone will resolve most digestive issues almost immediately. Beyond that, seriously increasing intake of raw fresh fruits and veggies, and dramatically decreasing consumption of starches and proteins, will help keep you from ever having these problems again.

Read the book linked below for more information.

I have been having poo problems for several weeks. Sometimes I feel like I have to go, urgently, and all I get is a bloody fart with mucus balls. I did have a doctor appointment today and am having a colonoscopy Monday. He think it sounds like IBS. I will report back and let you know. Anyway, I don't think I'd worry too much about butt snot, but it's the blood that has me worried.

I too have tangles of white woollen looking mucous in my poo, and tonsil poo - are the two things linked. Only mucous poo people have tonsil poo? I have never met anyone who confessed to either of these conditions, and although I have had them for years have only now happily stumbled on this reassuring site

ok im a single mom w two little boys.. I worked as an lna when me and my toddler began having mucus in our fecal matter.. I was terrified it may have been c-dif id inadvertently contracted at the nursing home i was working for and givin it to my son. So i quit. we were tested for c-dif and dont have it.. Our poop issues seemed to clear themselves up but last night i changed my sons diaper and to my horror saw yellow clear and what looked like blood filled sacs/worms?? As gross as it sounds i examined them as close as i dare (after all this is my child health!) after close examination im ninty percent sure they wernt worms or any living matter. I have been experiancing mucus being expelled out of my rectum for a while.. But I also engage in anal intercourse so i just figured it was residual cum.. I know its gross, but its honest.. I ALSO HAVE TONSIL STONES! i clean them out with a Q-tip and have for YEARS!! i am also dieting.. What is going on with my family?? How is it my son and I are both experiancing this but the baby and my boyfriend arnt?? Granted my man could be lying but i change the baby so theres no hiding it if he was too! Both of my boys have recently seen a doctor and got clean bills of health.. The pediatrician dismissed my concern sayin poop always looks odd in a diaper! I was too embarassed to share my plight with him! HELP!

I made an appointment for the doctor bc this doesnt seem normal at all but he couldn't take me for a few days so here i am.. anybody think im dieing? cus i sure feel like I am! :(

MedFuzz's picture

Hey there,

The presence of mucus in stool/poop is related to parasites - normally worms and protozoans like amoebas. It's treatable, so all you have to do is visit a doctor, run some medical tests (normally stool check) and get your diagnosis.

And no worries, parasite infections are extremely common. Most women tend to suffer from it more than men, particularly yeast infections around the vaginal area. Intense itching around the anus at night especially is often related to worms (pinworms to be exact) sneaking out of the anus to lay eggs around the rectal skin, hence the itchiness, rashes, lack of sleep and increased susceptibility towards yeast infections.

Mucus balls in the stool is often related to Roundworm deposits. If you have massive digestive problems, go check up with a doc and run some tests immediately because you might have some massive parasite infestation for years.

Relax! people, Relax! I had all the symptoms that you are having. Mucus, blood, and the foul smell. Went to the ER and they told me I had "colitis" A food-born illness, that has caused my large intestine to become irritated. It is a bacteria that is most commonly found in food, and can be cleared up with Antibiotics. SO relax!!! You may have something more serious, but my guess is, it is Colitis. If you are having these same symptoms, see a Dr. and he/she will probably tell you the same thing. Good luck!

Oh at last! I found a site that has hundreds of people having the same problem as I do. Mucous in my poop. The first time, which was yesterday, it scared me. i thought it was coming out of my vagina, then i realized it was coming out of my butt! So many thoughts ran through my head. "I knew butt sex was not a good thing!" Now I have torn or ripped something up in there! then I thought, heck, people have been having butt sex for centuries! cant be it! after reading what you all have wrote, i am convinced i have either a parasite from that hot tub i was in not too long ago, or an infection, like yeast and my flora is all messed up. At any rate, I feel so much better to know how common it is. making me believe even more, it is exactly what I suspect. I am going to eat yogurt, juice and some all fibre cereal and see what happens! I will keep ya posted. Oh by the way, my poo has always been normal. the day I noticed something different, was when i saw this slimey snot like stuff that had some blood in it, wrapped around my stool. I picked it up, yea, I know how gross, but i was concerned. and it had the smell of death! I swear, it was awful. ever since I have been on the internet trying to figure out what the heck it is, and now, thanks to this site, i think i know. if within a week, it is still here, i will see a dr and get back with you all! take care.

So, I'm not the only one who has been having this mucus problem. Mine started about two weeks ago, a little at first. Mostly clear to yellowish, gel-like or stringy, and sinks to the bottom of the toilet. About two tablespoons squeezes itself out before bowel movements, but sometimes after. When I wipe, it's there in all its snotty-looking mustardy-yellow glory.

Since the damn thing is stringy, and rather alien-looking, at first I entertained the thought it might be some sort of parasite I was expelling. Like a tapeworm. Or some other ingested stuff that didn't belong in my intestines (all that sushi in the previous weeks, maybe some worm eggs were in the fish or something.) But, I pulled the mucus out of the bowl, and did a good amount of inspecting with chopsticks in hand (no, I didn't use them for sushi again in future, they were disposed of)...and the goopy stuff was most definitely mucus, and not some sort of parasite, it was not solid, it was gelatinous and nasty. I did my best to forget about the whole thing.

Then I called up my mom, as the days went on, and I was getting this mucus twice a day. I'm perpetually constipated, so the fact I was crapping at all made me happy (though the mucus did not). I called her because she had colon cancer, as did her mom, and it killed my grandmother back in the days before chemo. Anyway, I wanted to ask mom if she had mucus problems pre-cancer. She said yes. But, she didn't have it with her cancer. She said she would get the mucus years ago when her internal hemorrhoids were acting up. A few years ago, a doc told me I had internal ones (along with external that make life a misery every few years).

So, what I think it boils down to, is that I started crapping more than normal, was straining, irritated the internal hemorrhoids, and they started producing that occasionally fishy-smelling mucus. I got a bad flare up of the damn hemorrhoids, and after a week of preparation H, everything is returning to normal, but now I'm having a ton of mucus I think as my rectum is trying to heal. The buildup of mucus in my rectum is making me think I have to crap, so I run to the bathroom, strain, and the only thing that comes out is this mucus. And then the hemorrhoids are irritated again. Vicious cycle.

So, I thought I'd share this, wondering if some of you might have what I have and it's attributed to internal hemorrhoid problems(?). Good luck.

If this doesn't clear up, and if I get a fever, I'm going to the doctor this week. As a side note, I was on a strong antibiotic, clindamycin, recently. Clindamycin is apparently known for causing Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea, and pseudomembranous colitis.

Good luck, all, and thanks for sharing your stories, made me feel better I'm not alone.

Constipated Vacationer's picture

Recently when I travel and I'm away from home, I get constipated (this isn't unusual for me) but now, I have yellow mucus, instead of stool. On my last travel, I sharted, then when I got home and was able to poop, it looked like milk chocolate and white chocolate blended together. I still can't empty out completely. I just got little bits at a time. I've had one good poo, after a 6 day vacation. If I take anything with a stimulant in it to help me go, I get the vagus nerve reflex and nearly faint, feel like I'm going to throw up and get hot and sweaty, then cold chills...it sucks!!
What can I do to avoid this when I travel. I've tried taking colon cleansers everynight at bedtime while away and still nothing, except yellow mucus. I hate vacation constipation.

poop poop padoo....I wish you the best possible results from your colonoscopy. If you have a history of colon cancer in your family make sure your diet contains lots and lots of fiber.
Eat 100% whole grain breads and lots of complex carbohydrates like broccoli. I have also read that an apple a day is a great idea since the pectin they contain helps bind carcinogens in the colon, they taste good too. Once again..good luck.

Anyway I have the worst bout with this for at least 3 weeks, today I had the infamious "asspod" sometimes they do look like little creatures yuck, from outer space. due for a colonscopy in 2 mon. with colon cancer in my family its a little unerving. Thanks for all of the input about your output..

I'm Disabled. So I'm a different story & it's more frustrating....

I Use Bisacodyl every other day to go, it's been fine for 23+ years, I also get a lot of uti's & have taken a lot of antibiotics over the years.....
For 3 weeks now I'd had crap problems, for about almost 2 weeks I went every day, which is crazy for me IE a disabled, slower system, every other day guy - I've gotten back on track but I still suffer from the same issues I've had since this annoyance started & that is..

Occasional Light mucus coming out after My BM day, Then the floowing day I get clear to brown fluid come out, None of all this is of the heavy variety - I Also don't have diarrhea - I also do currently have some type of hernia that a sonogramist said might be a loop of bowel....

I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, I've been eating plain yogurt & taking acidophilus, but might stop since I've been doing so a week or so now....

And there ya go..

Wow, I didn't realise there were quite so many people with this problem, or variations on it. That makes me feel a bit better. I didn't think to note it at the time, but a few years ago I started having a little mucus in my poo. But in January of this year I started getting random diarrhea once or twice a week. It lasted a month. Cleared up. I had blood tests which were clear, liver function normal, not cealiac etc. But though the diarrhea hasn't come back, thank god, a few months later, about April, the frequency started going up. I've always gone once to twice a day, sometimes not at all in a day, and now I was going 5 times. One day I freaked when I thought I saw blood in my stool. I rushed to the doc, and after some discussion I'm convinced I didn't, and instead mistook some colouring from a medicine for it instead. However at this point she mentioned that we were reaching the point of a colonoscopy. I was originally diagnosed back in Jan as having IBS, but I went back and was scared. I sent off new poo samples, and she said the next step would be more bloods, some the same, but also including ones not done before.

My top right hand ribcage started aching for a while. And against all medical advice I did start smoking a little to calm me down. Sheer worry was overtaking my days.

The mucus however has increased. As I said it's been there a few years, but it varies between a little some days, not at all others, and quite a lot others. I've recently had a wee flu virus and didn't go for a couple of days. Today I went in the morning, it was kind of ok, maybe a few strands attached as I looked in the bowl. But then I had an urge to go later, and there was quite a lot more mucus than I'm used to. It's gel like, and organgey/brown, sometimes clear. Except this time, for the first time ever, I noticed little white spots of mucus too, or white spots in the mucus. And I hadn't seen that before. I haven't been back to the Doctor in about three weeks, because it was my birthday and the frequency was going back to once/twice a day, and I was feeling a bit better about it. But now... I want to avoid a colonoscopy. I am fearful of needles alone, so something like that would be hugely distressing to me. I've never even taken a laxative in my life, so to have to even do that the day before the procedure, then go in for it itself... I mean, I've cried thinking about it.

So the mucus has increased over a period of time, there was the diarrhea in January, and my stomach makes gurgling noises of the kind it never used to. It's just different somehow.

The Doc wanted to put the frequency down to stress, as there were various events happening at the time. And altho I was under pressure in January, I'd say I've been more stressed in my life and that's not been affected.

All my Doc could say is that the stomach is a very sensitive organ. I've yet to get the poo results, which I think included one for infections. Then, if I want to, it's more bloods, and then depending on what they show up, the dreaded camera up the arse.

Why can't it just function normally like it did for 23 years eh?! Argh!

Overall, whatever this is, I'm scared about how I can possibly date and be in intimate relationships with people if these symptoms flare up. Running out in the middle of a date, being side tracked worrying, even the personal hygiene. It just seems like it would get in the way too much.

I read on one site that there's a theory crohn's is passed as a virus. And I met a guy, and hung out with him, and he's got it. Also, my best mate's dad, he has it. I so don't want it to be that, but I'm just scared. Fear is like my name right now.

I don't know about any of you but I'm lovin this poop snot thing I got going on. My butt is always moist and squishy whether I have to go to the bathroom or snot...I mean not. When I have to fart I hold a tissue down there like I have to sneeze, it's tons of fun. Give me lemons and I'll make snotty lemonade.

Hurray for Poop support! I'm so glad I found this site!

Now, I've been through these comments and it seems like poop mucus is a much more common thing than I thought before, so I'm not really worried about having it now. What does scare me is that all I can poop is mucus...I'll be constipated for 2-3weeks at a time and only be able to squeeze out a bunch of liquidy, slimy mucus when I think I'm pooping. It's awful. What can I do to get the real poop out instead of the mucus?

Oh thank GOD for this website. From around Summer '08 I've had stomach noise and discomfort, wind, and my personal hell the mucous!! I had a rectal examination and blood tests and do not have caeliac or anything sinister - I have been diagnosed with IBS. I have been constipated since I can remember, which I prefer to the opposite which I used to have, but the most horrible thing I have now is that when I've had to go to the loo (yes I'm English, hence the use of the word 'loo' lol) quickly (which is still only consipated stool) an hour later if I go to wee I will get mucous coming out in the form of horrible spluttery farts at the end of it! I'll wipe myself and there's this nasty gel like, yellowy coloured stuff, with sometimes a tiny spot of blood! I hate it, and wonder how I'll ever cope in an intimate relationship now, the mucous is the newest symptom and has not been going on more than six months or so! I absolutely HATE it! My GP has given me antidepressants which apparently sometimes help, but it still happens, usually when I've been stressed. I'm so glad to find I'm not alone. But does anyone get, like me, the mucous on it's own when they wee? That's the worst bit for me!! :-(

Sorry for the assumption - I assumed you were British because of the way you constructed your sentences, the overuse of 'poo' and the 'waz goin on' all of which are stylistically typical of teens over here. But now, re-reading, you use American spelling on 'odourless' so I shouldn't have made that assumption. Sorry about that.

You still need to see a professional though. I hope it's nothing to worry about. Good luck!
