Anal Rectal Pain Spasm
In Pregnancy, Anal Pain, Rectal Pain, Anal Spasm, and Rectal Spasm can result from many different sources. The discomfort can be burning in nature, present as pelvic pain that worsens after intercourse, and may radiate to the gluteal region and thigh. The cause can vary from simple disorders such as anal fissure, thrombosed hemorrhoids or perirectal abscess to more complex pathologies such as proctalgia fugax, levator ani syndrome, presacral tumors, and malignancies. Regardless, if these symptoms are severe, persist for more than a week, or intensify for more than two days in a row, they should be evaluated and treated by doctors specializing in anorectal disease and posterior pelvic compartment disorders.
