Feces bulging into wall of vagina

I am 32 year old female. Gall bladder removed when i was 17.
Grandmother died from colon cancer. No other family members with colon cancer. Other cancers but not colon.

For well over a year i have had constipation. It is constant. Some days are worse then others but it is always hard feces. I go every day and find i am going more then usual.

I have tried laxatives, I am currently on high fibre diet.

When i have to go i have to press down on the area between my anus and vagina (perinium???)to guide the feces out.

I have noticed blood in my stool BUT it looks like it is on the outside of the stool and does not drip out of me. I believe its from tearing anus due to large bm.

I am passing a lot of gas and feel bloated.

My biggest concern is when i am full of feces i can feel it bulge into my vagina. I cannot even put in a tampon as the bulge is so big. When i put a finger in my vagina it seems to bulge from the left side of  inside my vagina.
It may be common for women but i have never felt it before. Does anyone else get this?

I took the day off today as i am going to go to the doctor in the afternoon as i know something is not right.

ALSO, I hear a lot of people and the stat's show that certain cancers and disease's usually happen to people who are older. When i was 17 I had 8 severe attacks of stomach and back pain which lasted 20 minutes to 2 hours. The pain was worse then labour pain HONESTLY. 4 doctors and 3 hospital visits  and six months later I  finally was diagnosed with gallstones. They removed my gallbladder 2 weeks later
. Anyway my point is that it is extremely rare for a 17 year old to get gallstones but i did and so can any of you have problems that statistics show you shouldn't.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ AND/OR RESPOND

You need to see a Gastroenterologist so he can view your colon to see what is going on.  He will be able to do this with a colonoscopy.

Thanks for your reply.
I just got back from the doctor. It was a walk in clinic as i moved and cant go so far to see my doctor.
I explained everything to doctor and he is sending me for a x-ray and he wants me to go to a "stomach specialist" I dont mean to sound ignorant but is that the same doctor you mentioned? Also im wondering why hes sending me for a x-ray and not a colonoscopy.. Maybe the stomach doctor will do that.

You're very welcome, and NO you don't sound ignorant.
Yes, you will be seeing a Gastroenterologist as this is their specialty. Only a Gastroenterologist  can do a colonoscopy.  An xray may show something, but the doctor knows it can't show everything and it's good that he referred you to a GI doctor.  You're where you should be, please keep us posted as to how you are doing and what you find out.  Take care.....

Hello,

Reading your description and symptoms above match what I have been experiencing for about 3 months now. I have been visiting my doctor weekly and have had multiple tests to no avail as yet, am just waiting to get an appointment for a colonoscopy. Did you have any luck with your symptoms? I am feeling a bit at a loss so it’s nice to know that others have experienced what I am going through.

Any insight you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

You ARE NOT alone.  I too have to help the stool exit as well.  At times I have rectal pain that I have been dealing with for 4 long years.  Sometimes if there is pain a RX for IBS called Dicyclomine can help if you have pain.  But this drug can bind you up as well.  I don't wish this on anyone.
