    I have uncontrollable urges to go to the toilet in which results in watery faeces. After 3 days of this ongoing issue it seems to have gotten worse and now my bottom leaks watery faeces into my underwear without me being able to control it or actually knowing.

    hi i came on this website to ask about the same thing! I have been looking at other websites and they say that it is a sign that your period is starting and nothing serious. Abie (im 14) xx

    I have what I thought was a spot on my inner thigh right where my labia majora meets the leg. The spot burst and bloody pus drains out. So I cover it up with a hydrocolloid plaster. The hole where the ups was draining out got bigger and deeper every time in change the dressing and more bloody pus drains out. It has been a few days already now. It is sort when I touch it, and I seemed like it a staph aureus infection. What shall I do?

    im pretty sure that warts dont burst. i think herpes (the other strain) can. have you been to see a doctor to check what, exactly you have?

    I have always only opened my bowels 1-2 times per week since I was a child (I am now 37, female), but in the past few years I have become feeling really backed up and uncomfortable inbetween bowel movements, with my upper abdomen distending and feeling very solid. When the urge to have a bowel movement finally comes, I do not have to strain to pass the faeces and they are mid brown in colour and reasonably soft and continuous like faeces should be. However, they are often 3 inches in diameter and 10 inches long - ie huge! I have come to expect that I will block the loo regulalrly and sometimes try "nipping it off" half way through, and flushing after one lump and certainly between faeces and putting toilet paper down the toilet to try to prevent this. After such a bowel movement I feel very light and empty, and stretched, although I know I do not tear the anus as there is no blood spotting. However, surely this is not normal? Is there anything I can do to help make me more regular? My GP has suggested I have "sluggish bowel" and that I'll just have to live with it as there is no cure. He has prescribed lactulose to try to stimulate peristalsis, but this doesn't seem to have any effect (and is expensive at £5 a week). I eat a balanced diet and have always eaten plenty of fruit and veg. I am also on an anti-depressant called Sertraline 50mg daily, however this doesn't seem to be the cause as when I have been off these for many months, my bowel movements are the same as when I am on them. I find it is worse on the run-up to starting my period, with sometimes a whole week without a bowel movement before finally going one the day I start menstruating. Please have you any suggestions to improve my bowel movement frequency and abdominal discomfort.

    hi im lucky if i go twice a week. im not in good health tho and on alot of medication. Ive also started getting severe cramping pains and only thing to relieve it is to sit on loo. anyways, in answer to your question i find that by clenching your fist then firmly massaging your outer bowels helps the stools to move as well as taking 10mg of LACTULOSE SOLUTION before going to sleep helps soften the stools overnight ready for next day. sometimes it works,and sometimes it doesnt as everyone is different. ive also faound ( it might wirk for you too ) drinking 1 pint of water an hr before sleep and eating 6 dried prunes and 6 dried apricots. if all above fails,be persistant but polite to your general practitioner to sort it out,after-all.. thats theur job !

    I too take 50 mg aday of zoloft for depression and anxiety i have bad case of it but this remember effects our levels in bathroom too if i panic or stress out our digest system becomes slow divesting food and can resort in mikd constipation but i eat activia yogurt raisin brand bf veges loads water prune juice is daily salads chicken fish i try stay on a ok eating i also suffer from greds diease reflux i take pevicaid daily i just truly started eating solids again cause of my throat issue but this morning i took movement it wascsoft then i felt not emptt so i checked with my finger i had semi hard pellets stuck so i used a kil bit warm water enema and tryed getting restcout so i belive it helped i also only do this if absolute ness suppositories i hear help my doctor said use metamucil but ill wait cause if u dont drink water tons wit it boy u get worse constipation crazy i know bur i pray too and jesus hears us hope we get well asap in jesus name amen

    When I go to the loo I have to go straight after I have eaten. When i do go my faeces is almost like rabbit droppings? small and lots and lots. I could always go when I sit on the loo i can pass a solid every time? This all started after I had my daughetr nearly 3 years ago.

    I have the same problem. I remember an EB programme where a lady had an internal "bulge" in the side of her bowel which temporarily stored and then leaked poo. I think they found a solution but I can't remember what it was! Anyone else???

    The internal bulge sounds like a rectal prolapse, and the 'pocket' where faeces get stuck is called a rectocele. Both conditions can be treated surgically with an operation called a 'mesh rectopexy'. I don't have these problems myself but know of others who have, and they've had the rectopexy procedure with great results. There are online support groups for people with bladder and bowel trouble, so have a search online - there's lots of help and advice out there.

    I find it difficult to empty my bowels without holding tissue paper on my perineum and I can feel it bulge in that area. Sometimes I am having to use my other hand to press down on my bum cheeks to direct my faeces towards the anal opening. It is painful to pass stools. I also find that I am getting some faeces on my undergarments which is very embarassing. I have been to see my GP and then the hospital who say that I am now to be referred to an Anal Specialist.

    I am a 59 year old male, and for the past year and a bit, my faeces have become noticably very strong smelling, and comparable to the odour of dog faeces! I've been to my GP, had a blood test, and results are apparently "satisfactory. he suggests I might have diverticulosis, but I am still concerned about the strong smell. I tend to be loose and frequent, but DO NOT get pain. My cousin had diverticulitis, and recently surgeons operated and found a large bowel abcess, and now she has a colostomy! I'm a bit worried and would appreciate your comments.

    Have you heard that 'burglers' (house-robbers) often 'leave' faeces in the premises. They are often nervous and exited about this criminal activity. YOU need to pass faeces as you say, when YOU get NERVOUS about something, or EXITED..This is because a 'branch' of the Central Nervous system ( The sympathetic nervous system) 'kicks' in, and like the burglar, you need to defaecate. As for the urgency to defaecate very soon after 'dining-out', I would imagine that the exitement/pleasure of the event has the same effect on your Symp.Nerv.System. David.

    TMAU -in a survey online the majority of people reported their smell was like faeces.Its not always 'rotten fish' so I hope the programme makes that clear. I occasionally get a very strong escape of urine/fish smell - no leakage! Mostly my strong clouds of smell are like strong meaty/bovril,instant soup smell. Some days I smell like faeces/sick at a low level all day - particularly if I've had stomach upset. I try to eat the minimum during working week,never eat during day,only chicken sandwich for dinner. Its difficult to hold onto the job, and people just think you don't wash or dont stop farting!

    I was having multiple bloody nose due to stress. I went to the ENT and he cauterized the area on my septum. He burned a small hole through the soft tissue! After a couple months it the area rotten away. A different ENT did surgery, took tissue from either nostril and tried to close the hole,it rotted out! I have severe migraines now from the surgery and constant sinus infections. It's difficult to breathe at times, and this past winter I started having bloody noses again. So frustrating!

    Oh you poor thing! I had very bad bleeding nose...blew and blew til I realized I had blown a good size hole in my septum. Its not sore and although I still get blocked sinuses I'm not too worried about it...just doing a sinus rinse most days, keeping a medicated ointment on it and taking a sinus tab each day....by all accounts people who have had buttons and surgery aren't too happy with them

    How do I order a home test kit for screening of my faeces?

    I suspect that I have had faeces breath for decades. First signs, were people acting as if I had hit them in the face with a pillow when I talked. Even at 6 or 10 feet away, rooms would fill up with what can only be described as raw faeces smell. Girls would be really keen on dates, until we kissed or got close and would then abruptly walk out on me. People at work put their hands over their noses when I talk. Body language is typically a scrunched up face, rapid blinking and a head that moves from side to side to try and avoid the strong poo smell. Just last night at work, a colleague came in and said "this room literally smells of faeces". Then a female colleague said directly to me, "you disgust me, you make me want to be sick". I obviously have been made suicidal by this, because you can never have a partner, you will never get promoted and people will always regard you as "that person with the poo breath". I floss, brush several times a day, use mouth wash, expunge tonsoliths and scrape my tongue and throat. Nothing works and 30 seconds after a complete clean, it is like I have just put poo in my mouth. I chew mints so much that people at work say that I stink of mints. Lesser of two evils, but they still recoil, blink and put their hand up to their nose. I am resigned to dying single and to never going out again, if I can find the strength to go on. It is not a hygiene problem, however when I clear my nose or throat of phlegm, of which I have a constant supply, it tastes of poo. Even if I have just crunched and swallowed a large mint, I can clear my throat and get the poo smell/taste. This is probably a sinus, bowel or lung issue, but I don't leave the house apart from going to work, because who wants to be around an individual who exhibits nature's oral danger signal.

    I too suffer from the same thing. Originally I thought it was intestinal, stomach, bowel, liver, kidney and even my nether regions. Ive had colonoscopy, endoscopy, antibiotics galore, 9 doctors, 7 specialists, 6 naturopaths, been on the candida diet for a year and still the smell lingers and they have ALL referred me to a psychaitrist. I too have suicidal thoughts but I am with a different doctor who is keen to help find a cure. I am 46 years female and avoided relationships for 4 years when all this started. Determine to beat it and live a clean smell free life! Process of elimination and a decent doctor!!!

    Nicholas, I know exactly how you feel. My breath smells like poop too. (I've never really admitted it until just now. That was really hard but I'll keep typing through tear blurred eyes.) I avoid human contact at all cost, our condition is so humiliating. But trust me when I say that you will find love. I, amazingly, have. Despite my offensive fecal breath. People will talk, but even if we didn't smell, they'd find something to talk about. I, too, felt that suicide would be the answer. But, realistically, it is not an answer- It is a shame. So, don't give up. Hold your head up high. And make people love you because you are an awesome person. Good Luck to you!

    I will be 50 this year and had an hysterectomy when I was 38 years old. For a few months now I have felt after opening my bowels as if I have a fullness in my vagina almost like I have a Tampax inside that needs changing. I have also leaked a little bit of faeces when I go to pass urine. I think i may have the start of a prolapse

    I am 47 and watched one of your shows relating to a woman who's embarrasing illness was that she spent a long time wiping her bottom due to stimulation of more faeces. You diagnosed her with a gulley. Can you advise me where to check up on this on your website.
