What is a Leaky Anus (Anal Leakage)?
We never expect stool or urine to be expelled unless we want to purposely evacuate it. The act of passing urine or passing stool is usually controlled to the point where we can get to a toilet and relieve ourselves. Sometimes accidents do happen when a person has a bowel disease but this is usually short-lived. However, when small volumes of stool stain the undergarments without an actual bowel movement or urging to pass stool then it is important to investigate it further. Anal leakage is a colloquial term for fecal incontinence. It is also sometimes referred to as a leaky anus. Most people understand fecal incontinence.
Having a leaky anus can be an embarrassing condition whereby a person passes some stool or anal discharge unexpectedly or uncontrollably. The most common reasons for anal leakage are diarrhea or constipation, in which case the leakage will usually stop when your digestive system gets back to normal. However, leakage from the anus can also happen if you have hemorrhoids , damaged rectal muscles, or nerve damage. In these cases, the leaky anus could be a chronic condition that requires proper medical care and management. Some people only realize that they suffer from a leaky anus when they notice anal discharge on their underwear. The seepage may be watery stool or mucus that has passed unknowingly from the rectal muscles. Depending on the reasons for bowel incontinence, there are different ways to treat a leaky anus.
