Faecal Incontinence – Loss of Bowel Control
Occurs when there is weakness in your pelvic floor muscles and changes in your stool consistency.
Occurs when your rectum becomes hypersensitive and is often associated with looser bowel motions and weakness in your pelvic floor muscles.
May occurs with these triggers:
Coffee, fizzy drinks, alcohol, artificial sugars, running water, on route to the toilet or with key in the door.
Defecation Dyssynergia (Anismus)
Pelvic floor muscle dyssynergia is the condition where the external anal sphincter and the puborectalis muscle of the pelvic floor muscles contract rather than relax during an attempted bowel movement.
Common symptoms include: incomplete emptying of rectum after defecating, sensation of pushing against a blockage, fecal loading or impaction and soiling of liquid faeces.
