Anything foreign into your anus/rectum carries a risk

It can get stuck and cause bleeding and infection

Dr. Phil, MD :

Well if it continues to bleed, then you will

Dr. Phil, MD :

There should be no bleeding with the next bowel movement

Dr. Phil, MD :

any bleeding now or pain?

Customer: Very small and i cant tell as im not sticking anything else up there no more and no pain
Dr. Phil, MD :

okay good.

Dr. Phil, MD :

This will likely heal on its own.

Dr. Phil, MD :

But if you have pain or bleeding with the next bowel movement, then it needs checked

Customer: Ok what is the problem i have committed ?
Customer: Ok
Dr. Phil, MD :

you likely tore some of the tissue
