Can feel stools in vagina

Posted , 3 users are following.

I can feel the pressure of stools in my vagina, which makes walking and sitting uncomfortable, even after a bowel movement.  When I have loose stools however, after defecation my vagina burns and stings for the rest of the day.  Either way I'm always in pain or at the best very uncomfortable.  At night the vaginal pain wakes me up with a need to have a bowel movement.  This normally happens at least three times a night.  Does anyone have similar problems?

      In answer to you question, I always have to sit down very carefully, with either of the two symptoms mentioned.  My main problem is after sitting for even  a short while, on rising I'm in extreme pain in the vaginal/urethral area, this is only relieved by urinating. It is all a mystery to me.  I have had a colonoscopy; flexible sigmoidoscopy; MRI scan of pelvis, with a dye to show up any damaged nerves, and nothing has shown up that could be causing this problem, which is preventing me from sleeping, walking - living a normal life.

      Hi Saxonjus

      Yes, I have been told that I have diverticular disease, but no-one has suggested to me that this could be the cause of my problem.  Thank you so much for the information, it has been very helpful.
