Hi..how many times a day are you going and what's the consistency?

It could mean you're flaring (rectal meds will help) or you have a fissure (rectal meds will help as well as topical preparations to help heal).

Have you taken a peek? Squatting over a mirror is a good way to do so..

*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every second night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~vitamins/minerals/supplements 
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!

Sounds like rectal fissure(s) or hemmorhoids. An OTC cortisone cream might help. You can also check out FissureHeal suppositories:

Soaking in a warm bath can provide relief, too.
