Fecal Incontinence… the stuff no one talks about

According to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, fecal incontinence is the recurrent and involuntary loss of stool or flatus (gas). Often times one of the main causes post partum is obstetric trauma or pudendal nerve injury.
