What does it mean when thick clear liquid coming out of anus when having a bowel movement? My fiance is having a thick clear substance come out instead of his normal stool when he has a bowel movement. Any information on what sis causing this to occur it would help a great deal.

Hi there. The mucus in stool is something that is generally very normal. Of course, if there is not too much of if the amount is small. If it is not small, I think that you should see what is the cause of it. It happened once to me and it was because of dehydration. That is a really normal thing and it can happen to anyone. You cure this very easily - by drinking water. But you should also know that too much of mucus can also be a sign of illness which can lead your body more open to infection. Also, it can be caused by bacterial infections. 
Mucus in stool often indicates there is inflammation of the intestines. Mucus in stool can occur with either constipation or diarrhea. It's usually whitish in color. According to alternative practitioners, the more common causes of mucus in stool includes bacterial overgrowth and food allergies and sensitivities. They are often easily corrected with dietary changes and supplements. With bacterial overgrowth, bloating and gas usually worsen after eating any sugar, whether it's white sugar, bread, pasta, rye, rice, or milk (which contains the sugar lactose). In contrast, people with food allergies and sensitivities react to specific foods. Other causes of mucus in stool are: * Ulcerative colitis * Crohn's disease * Celiac disease * Diverticulitis

I have the mucus bowel movement happen about 3 times a week for 2 months now. Bad gas problem goes along with it. Mucus with spots of red like blood comes out painfully and takes awhile. Large amounts. I use to take probiotics and I believe I have an overpopulated intestine as a result.
how'd u sort out the issue
Are any of those life threatening or am I good?
I had a colosonopy , now my stomach blots out all the time and I am sick to my stomach , and I have a clear discharger , when I have a dowel movement ,
I'm only 17 and ive been having the same issue, I eat very well but lately ive been gaining weight and getting stomach pains. What is this?
It's amazing reading how many people are having the same symptoms as me. I have a relatively good diet, have almost entirely eliminated soda, and drink the appropriate amounts of water per day, but none of this helped. I tried a lot of things, but didn't have any success until I started taking a specific probiotic. Within a couple days, I was back to pooping like a normal person. If you want to learn more about my experience or the product, send me an email. I want to help more people overcome this strange and uncomfortable condition.
Hi. I am experiencing nothing but a clear jelly like substance instead of any sort of bowel movements for the last 2 weeks. Is that what you experienced? If so, what caused it and how did you fix it?
I don't have an answer for what caused it. I eat pretty well and drink a lot of water. I don't overindulge sugary drinks or alcohol. I wish I had a better answer than that. To answer your second question, I found a fix when I started taking a probiotic once a day that is specifically designed to help with digestion along with other supplements that promote gut health.
I am also having da same prob. :(

Stool sample shows no infection, don't have intercourse, no pain. Leakage is CLEAR w/o odor. Come out when walking, getting up from sitting, with bowel movements. Been asking G.I. doctor for months. Says take Imodium & fiber. Taking enzymes to help gut.
The exact same thing I am experiencing but very gassy I used to have hardish stools now they ate firm but soft with mucous leakage when walking getting up ect very embarrassing how do I fix this?
