Welcome to HealingWell!
What do you mean by pain in your belly? Is it your stomach (upper abdomen) or is it lower (like period cramps)? Do you take anything for constipation - laxatives, prune juice, etc.? Have you spoken to your doc about
Anal fissures are like cracks... usually one gets them from straining and having hard stools. Most docs tell you to eat more fiber and send you home with a cream. I've never had fissures, but I had a friend who did. She said it took a few weeks for hers to go away. She did add a fiber supplement to her diet and occasionally took a stool softener to help move things along.
