Rectal pain after normal intercourse

After my husband and I had intercourse last night (normal intercourse), my rectum was screaming in pain. I could not get up off the couch without my eyes tearing up. This morning I had a bowel movement (painful, but not as bad as last night), but when I wiped, there was a streak of purplish red stuff on the toilet paper. Could he have bruised my rectum through my uterus last night from the angle we were having intercourse?

Assuming this was vaginal intercourse, and you have not had this problem before, you should get an evaluation by a gynecologist, who should do a gynecologic plus rectal exam and check for blood in the stool. If positive for blood, you need an evaluation by a colorectal expert. If you have had the problem of pain with intercourse before, and your gynecologic workup is negative for masses, infections, tumors, then you chould consider an evaluation by a qualified pelvic floor physical therapist, who may be able to diagnose pelvic muscle trigger points and treat you with physical therapy.
