You are not alone. 18 million have accidental bowel leakage. Studies show approximately 18 million U.S. adults have fecal incontinence also known as accidental bowel leakage (ABL). This amounts to about 1 in every 12 people. It is important to know people of any age can have fecal incontinence. However, it is more common in older adults. In addition, accidental bowel leakage or fecal incontinence is slightly more common among women.

This issue occurs when an individual has a problem controlling their bowels and solid or liquid stool is passed from the rectum. In addition, the person with this type of incontinence may be unable to reach a toilet in time or may not even have enough anal sensation to know they are having an accidental bowel leakage.

This type of incontinence is highly embarrassing for the individual and often anyone dealing with this will not seek out medical care due to being ashamed. However, by understanding the possible causes of fecal incontinence along with the solutions this is an issue which can be successfully managed.

This is when a person passes loose or watery stools 3 or more times everyday. In addition, someone with fecal incontinence may have an overwhelming and sudden urge to move their bowels. 
  • Causes of fecal incontinence. Sometimes fecal incontinence is brought on by a serious disease or injury. This is often due to the aftermath of injury to the muscles which control evacuation in the pelvic floor. Those individuals who are in poorer health are most at risk for this type of incontinence.
