Passive Bowel Incontinence

Millions of people across the United States suffer from passive incontinence each day. With passive incontinence, the brain fails to send a warning that the rectum is full.

The causes of passive incontinence vary and may be corrected through simple lifestyle and dietary changes. Overall, it is very treatable.

Symptoms of passive bowel incontinence include:

  • Involuntary and unawareness of the passage of stool
  • Aversion to social situations
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Leakage
  • Passing stool during flatulence

Passive incontinence can be one of the most mentally detrimental forms of incontinence. People with passive bowel incontinence may avoid social situations and interactions, even work, to avoid accidents. If you suffer from passive incontinence, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.
