    fecal incontinence during sex
    ln1966 posted:
    I am so embarrassed. I am 46, with depression and anxiety, often times I have terrible, painful constipation that moves into even worse diahrea, and it will last for hours, then other times I'll have a half-way normal BM, but then I'll slowly leak feces no matter how much I wipe or try and push it out, and just over the last couple of years I've had fecal leakage during sex, regular vaginal sex. I have a new boyfriend, and 2 out of the last 3 times we've had sex, I've had "accidents". He was very sweet about it of course, and said it's o.k.. But to me, It's definitely Not o.k.. I'm so distressed about it, I don't want to have sex with him again until I can find a solution. I'm wondering if it might be his "size", or if there is something wrong with me. Would it help if I give myself an enema to clean myself out before I have sex with him?? Help me!! What do I do? He's a great guy, and I don't want to lose him over this. I mean really.. How would I explain that break-up to people??
