Can you elaborate on why mucus comes out of anus. I go to toilet in the morning. Its a good mtion. Then when I go for a walk along with gas some mucus/ water comes. Even during day some mucus comes with gas. What can be reason? Doctor has suggested Colono scopy.

Of all of these newsletters, the following is my favorite quote: “Mucus is underappreciated.” I’m going to try to use it once per day this week. Stay healthy.

RE Sex & UTIs: going from several years of almost 1:1 correspondence between vaginal intercourse followed by UTI, I established a habit of carefully cleaning the vaginal area with a baby wipe, continuing back to include the anal area before bed or in anticipation of sex. It’s been months (perhaps as long as a year) since I had an infection. I concluded that just as is true with other parts of my body, new wrinkles were making little hiding places for fecal bacteria, and that extra care for me, and a quick wipe for my husband might be helpful. And so it is.
