Fecal incontinence, also called bowel or anal incontinence, is the inability to control your bowel movements, causing stool (feces) to leak from your rectum. Fecal incontinence can range from occasional leakage of a small quantity of stool while passing gas to a complete loss of bowel control.

The Urogynecology Program at Michigan Medicine provides comprehensive surgical and non-surgical services for women suffering from pelvic floor disorders including urinary and fecal incontinence, as well as pelvic organ prolapse.
Pelvic Organ Prolapse occurs when the pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, vagina and rectum) fall downward and bulge out through the opening of the vagina.
Urinary incontinence is a condition women experience when they are unable to control voiding urine. It can be embarrassing and debilitating, and is often the result of pelvic floor damage.
