According to a study by National Institute of Health, as many as 18 million people in the U.S. suffer from fecal incontinence. It can be very embarrassing at moments, and can make social living a difficult thing. However, there are several ways to stay protected against this problem.

There are some treatment options (such as Kegal exercises) that you may want to try out. Depending upon your condition, your doctor will be able to suggest the right treatment. The least intrusive treatment would be an exercise program and some dietary changes.


You’ll find various disposable protective undergarments (including adult diapers and pull-up underwear) that can be used at night time, and they can help you manage bowel incontinence in a better way. When you’re going to buy an adult diaper, make sure you select a product that comes with anti-leak barriers. Also, it’s best to get elastic fabric as it will provide a more snug fit and avoid leaks. There are some varieties with refastenable tabs that offer a secure fit and can be easily removed. You also need to get a product that comes with odor control features. With the help of odor control, you’ll be able to attend social gatherings without worrying about embarrassing mishaps.

When you use protective undergarments, you can stay protected and comfortable at all times. Learning more about your problem will help you treat it efficiently. You should speak to your doctor about bowel incontinence to find the right types of products and supplies according to your needs.
