Bulging perineum
I am an 18 year old female. I find it hard passing faeces, when I need to pass a stool I get a bulge in the skin between the vagina and anus, it can be a little bit painful and I have to press on it in order to move the faeces to be pooped out. I sometimes have to push on it a few times to get all the faeces out. Do you know what this could be?

I also have not had a child, been pregnant, had an infection down below or injured it.

Sorry to read of you problem.  From your description, you are describing a perineocele.  This is a hernia between the rectum and vagina.  This would be an unusual finding in someone of your age.  I would suggest you see a gynecologist or urogynecologist in you area to be evaluated.
