Your Guide to Proctitis and a Swollen Rectum

A swollen rectum can be a red flag for many things, but more often than not, Proctitis is the first suspect.

This condition leads to swelling in the rectal lining. And while those who are sexually inactive (and those who’ve never engaged in sexual activity before) can be victims, people who engage in sex are more prone to Proctitis.

The rectum is the lower end of your digestive tract, next to your anus. In essence, it links the end of your large intestines to the anus. Any waste matter must pass via the rectum before it exits the body through the anal cavity.

A swollen rectum can cause discomfort and make pooping painful. Though severe and repetitive cases may call for surgery, you can cure many Proctitis infections with prescription antibiotics.
