mucus, sure. but EXTRA mucus?
When I farted, a bunch of mucus came out. I wasn't sure if it was mucus or not; it had no color to it and it was clear, almost like water except it was a little thicker. Do you know if this is OK? What could have caused it? Sometimes when I make a bowel movement, the same thing will happen. Thanks!
Thanks for the question!
If it is just an occasional thing, I would just say "Hmmm" and not think anything of it at all. Sometimes mucus just comes out of there for no particular reason.
But if this represents a significant change in your bowel habits and it is persisting, you should present your ass to a real doctor and get it checked out.
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 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?
