Anal Tearing?

Patient: Hi, I’m a young gay man. I have had sex multiple times, but recently had a problem. I was bottoming during anal sex and the guy was a little rough. It’s a week later and I’m still in pain. There is blood and what looks like mucus on my toilet paper. It constantly feels like I have to go to the bathroom. When I do, it hurts a lot. Is this a normal tear that willheal over time or should I be worried?
