Bowel control problems affect at least 1 million people in the United States. Loss of normal control of the bowels is called fecal incontinence. This leads to leakage of solid or liquid stool (feces) or gas.
Many women are not comfortable talking about bowel control problems. They may think that nothing can help them. If you talk with your doctor about it, he or she can offer effective treatments.
