Anorectal disorders are all the illnesses which are located in the anal and rectal portions of the large intestine. Hemorrhoids is an anorectal disease and so is anorectal cancer. While hemorrhoids are benign, anorectal cancer can be fatal.
Faecal incontinence, proctalgia fugax, excessive perineal descent, and pruritus ani, are other anorectal disorders which can affect men and women of all ages.
The symptoms of most anorectal disorders are nonspecific, that can make their diagnosis difficult. That is the reason anorectal disorders should not be taken lightly and treated a with priority. We bring you a snapshot of a few most common anorectal diseases for empowering you with knowledge so that you can stay healthy.
A few common anorectal disorders are:
1. Hemorrhoids: These are large, sack-like blood vessels which are located in and around the anus. These can also be found in the lower rectum or the portion of the large intestine just above the anus.
Causes: They are caused due to ageing, chronic constipation, diarrhea, pregnancy, not getting enough fibre and irregular eating habits.
Symptoms: Bleeding while defecation, pain and protrusion of the haemorrhoid and most of these do not respond well to non-surgical treatments such as increasing intake of dietary fibre and avoiding constipation. Surgical treatment is thus advised for patients who continue to have severe bleeding, pain or protrusion due to hemorrhoids. Treatments: Common surgical treatments for severe hemorrhoids are:
Rubber band ligation- This is an outpatient procedure.
Hemorrhoidectomy- This is a surgery to remove hemorrhoids and it is the best method for permanent removal of hemorrhoids. It may require hospitalization and a period of inactivity.
2. Anal Fissures: This is a small tear in the lining of the anus. Anal fissures cause pain, bleeding and itching around the anus.
Causes: Anal fissures are caused due to hard, dry stools, diarrhea and inflammation in the anorectal area.
Treatments: Most anal fissures heal by themselves over time. They can also be healed by application of medicated creams and topical ointments. Surgery is recommended when the fissures don’t heal.
Surgical options are:
- Surgical repair: Repair of the anal tear.
- Internal sphincterotomy: This consists of a small operation to relieve the underlying muscle spasm, which is actually contributing to the anal fissure.
3. Anorectal Abscesses: This is an infected cavity which is filled with pus and found near the anus or rectum.
Causes: Usually, such abscesses occur when bacteria or faecal matter enters the tissue outside the anus.
Symptoms: Superficial anal abscesses are often associated with:
- Pain, which is usually constant, throbbing, and worse when sitting down.
- Skin irritation around the anus, including swelling, redness, and tenderness.
- Discharge of pus.
- Constipation or pain associated with bowel movements.
Treatment: The treatment of an abscess is surgical drainage under most circumstances.
4. Anal Fistula: Anal fistula is the name given to a small, abnormal tunnel connecting the anal glands. From this tunnel, the abscess comes out onto the skin outside the anus. Bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease and colitis are linked to an increase in the likelihood of anal abscesses and fistulas.
Symptoms: Pain, irritation of the skin around the anus, pus, fever and swelling.
Treatment: Usually involves surgically draining pus from the infected cavity and, also making an opening in the skin near the anus for removing the pus cells.
Fistulotomy: This is a surgical treatment to cure anal fistula. and can be performed on an outpatient.

Are you pregnant and wondering whether is it okay to continue having sex? If you are having a normal pregnancy, it is fine to keep on having sex until your water breaks or you are going into labour. However, there are some circumstances where you may have to modify your sexual activities or avoid having sex.
Does sex during pregnancy harm your baby?
Your baby is not hurt, if you have sex during pregnancy. The amniotic sac and strong muscles of the uterus keep the baby protected. The thick mucus plug sealing the cervix guards the baby from infections.
Does sex during pregnancy trigger labour?
In the case of a normal and low risk pregnancy, there are no such risks as sexual stimulation cannot start labour or lead to a miscarriage. Some mild uterine contractions may occur because of an orgasm, but they are quite harmless and temporary.
The best sexual positions during pregnancy
During pregnancy, you should experiment in order to find out the sexual positions which are most comfortable for you. Finding a suitable sexual position is hard because of the growing belly.
- The missionary position becomes quite tough as your pregnancy develops and is impossible to carry out during late pregnancy. If you try this position during your first trimester of pregnancy, you should wedge a pillow under you. This should be done so that your position is not tilted and you do not lay flat on your back. Your partner should make sure not to put any pressure or support on your abdomen.
- Oral sex is considered to be safe during pregnancy, but there are certain limitations. Licking is okay, but blowing into your genital area should be abstained from. Forcing air into the vagina may lead to an air embolism. This can be harmful for your developing baby.
- It is not safe for you to indulge in oral sex with your partner during pregnancy, if he has oral herpes. If your partner has got oral herpes, you should completely abstain from having sex during the third trimester of pregnancy, even though he does not show symptoms.
In case you are not sure of your partner’s HIV status, you should use a dental dam or a sheet of latex for placing between your genitals and partner’s mouth. You should take suggestions and tips from a doctor to know more about sex during pregnancy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.
