Discharge after BM
I have noticed that I sometimes have a white discharge after a bowel movement. It seems to come from my anus. There is no pain. Just a discharge. And it only happens sometimes. Is this something I should be worried about? I am not very "regular".

Dear Sam

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

I confirm that this condition is nothing to worry about, as this is a normal appearance after bowel movement.

Kind regards
