Two sets of muscles separate the colon from the outside world. One is the internal anal sphincter muscle.
The other is the external anal sphincter muscle. Known as the anus. As feces collects in the rectum it puts pressure on the internal anal sphincter muscle, where nerve endings send a message to the brain signaling its time to move your bowels.
Ignoring this signal will generally end up causing constipation. Constipation can be from mild to severe depending upon how long you ignore this signal to have a bowel movement.
Remember that the anus has literally thousands upon thousands of nerve endings, and if you injure it, it will be very painful. So great care must be taken whenever inserting anything into the anus. Anything with a sharp edge can scratch or cut the delicate anal tissue. a ragged fingernail is usually the cause of most anal scratches. Using a rubber glove generally alleviates this problem. It also seems to penetrate the anus easier with lubrication.
Dealing with an Anal Fissure can be a long and very painful experience. You need to inspect, anything that you're going to insert into the anus for sharp or ragged edges to avoid injury.
The people that are most susceptible to anal injury are people with hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoid tissue is thinner and more susceptible to Injury .
