If a young woman is experiencing pain when she uses the bathroom, she may hold her bowel movements for a longer period of time. This would not help because it would just make the bowel movements even more painful. Stool softeners may be prescribed for the patient so that it makes going to the bathroom much easier.

However, this just helps with one symptom and it does not actually stop the problem. The woman will have to go to the doctor’s and get a prescription or a procedure to stop her problem. The next step besides going to the doctor’s office would be to perform a lateral internal sphincterotomy. The lateral internal sphincterotomy is a procedure that causes the pressure to lessen.

There are many signals that control catabolism. Most of the major signals are hormones and molecules involved in metabolism itself.
