coming from my vagina and not my anus. Can someone explain this to me? what should I do? I have an IUD btw.

    You could have a retroverted uterus maybe? If the bowel movement is placing pressure on your IUD....I think you should consult your gynecologist. I think it would be good to use a noninvasive imaging technique to get a better idea of what's happening inside of you. Out of an over abundance of caution it may be wise to remove the IUD.

    There is a slight risk of uterine perforation with IUDs. My other thought is possible minor fistula or fissure. Either can be treated by a healthcare provider.

    See a doctor!
