Bowel or anal incontinence is the involuntary loss of feces or gas (flatus). This type of incontinence is usually associated with childbirth—whether recent or from many years in the past—which can injure the sphincter muscles of the anus. Gastrointestinal tract disorders such as diarrhea or constipation and rectal prolapse (rectocele) can also result in anal incontinence.
Accurately diagnosing the cause of anal incontinence helps determine the most effective treatment for a woman's particular situation.
Once a diagnosis is made, treatment focuses on the cause of the incontinence.
Our providers have the expertise to treat even the most complex urogynecologic problems with practiced, thoughtful care for the needs of our patients. The pelvic health program at UMMC sees patients by physician-referral and self-referral.
