Bowel and Gas Incontinence

There’s a condition so embarrassing that even your doctor doesn’t talk about it. It is bowel and gas incontinence also called Fecal Incontinence (FI) and it is a secret epidemic that impacts the lives of one in thirteen women.

Bowel and Gas Incontinence can be upsetting, and many women feel too ashamed to discuss it with their doctor. Because of this fear and lack of understanding about the treatment options available, many women end up wearing uncomfortable pads or diapers for protection against gas or stool loss or leaking.

The Florida Bladder Institute Can Help

Dr. Gauta is a board certified expert in women’s health and offers many medical and minimally invasive alternatives as a solution.

The dominant cause of bowel incontinence is pelvic floor damage that occurs during normal childbirth. It is not uncommon for injuries to occur to the pelvic floor’s muscles, ligaments, and tissues that support the uterus, vagina, bladder, and rectum during the process. Just like with urinary incontinence, it can take many years or decades for these debilitating symptoms to occur.

As a urogynecologist and a board certified and specialty trained women’s health expert, Dr. Gauta provides a total approach to managing and treating gynecological and urological conditions. This complete approach to treating problems of the pelvis, bladder, uterus and bowel provides both continuity of care and convenience for our patients.
