A few weeks ago I had a bowel movement just after we finished having sex. It was really embarrasing. Embarassed It was really loose, pretty much watery. The sex lasted much longer than usual and took a lot of energy. I was wondering if it was maybe down to the extreem exercise that it happend. I didn't even feel it. At first I thought it was some really weird vaginal discharge. Then I went to the toilet and I still had very loose bowels. Ever since then I've been really worried it's going to happen again. Sometimes I feel slightly like I need to go and because I'm so worried about it I can't really enjoy sex and I don't like it dragging on incase it happens. Has anyone else ever had this? Is it likely to happen again? Do you think it was down to the extreem physical activity or an upset stomach or something else?

Did you have anal sex?

It seems more likely that you just had diarrhea, and it wasn't really from the sex. I wouldn't worry about it in the future.

Eliminate your fears
Judging from your other posts Squish it sounds as if you're a woman in her twenties or thirties, a bit early to be losing control. Have you had similar accidents or leakage under other circumstances. If you have, you likely need medical intervention. But, if this is an isolated case then let me make a few suggestions.

* Just to play it safe it may be advisable to try and have a bowel movement just before sex.
* If you are in the middle of intercourse and you sense some looseness there is nothing wrong with excusing yourself and trying to have a bowel movement. If you have no immediate results on the toilet then it could just be a sensation intercourse creates for you.

*Not much separates the walls of your vagina from the walls of your colon so even though you may not feel the urge to have a bowel movement prior to intercourse it is entirely possible that when your partner penetrates you vaginally that the pressure from his thrusts pushes out some of the fecal matter that normally would have come out later.

Finally, if this is a reoccuring problem, allow him to give you a mild, low volume enema as part of foreplay. Fleet Enemas are convenient and premixed and it may be all that you may need. Make a quick visit to the toilet to expell the enama and simultaneously elimat the possibility of another mishap. You'll feel better physically and allow you to concentrate on the pleasures of the moment instead of fear of embarrassment.

Good luck.

I have experienced this too...except it happened to me (3) times...at the peak of "intense" orgasm. In the past 2 months. This is not normal and incorporating a fleets is not intriguing. Why is this happening and is there a weakness in the retal spincter or something where surgical intervention could solve this issue?

I have had this problem also. I saw a doctor about a diagnosis.
I suffer from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and it is because of this that I sometimes feel the urge to pass stools during sex. I look at all the posts of the women this has occurred with and I highly suggest seeking a gynecologist or women's health provider to get tests done to rule out anything serious that could result in your problem. However, I really do believe that it's just IBS, but be sure to see your gynecologist just in case.

Your worrying too much. If you lookup rectal cancer symptoms you'll just worry more.
Sometimes when I have sex with a guy he penetrates me at an odd angle and I can feel it in my rectum. This feels weird so I have a fleet enema, we resume and I use a towel in case I get leakage.

IT has happene to me 3 times, the last time it happened was thursday, i had just begun having sex with my partner which was very intent, and just after it i said oh my god i think i have soiled myself, he went to the bathroom didnt say anything out of ordinary, and i changed the sheets which had loose stools on it, but i never saw him again, i text a few times and no reply, and then he told me that i had soiled myself and that he had to book into a hotel on route to his destination and have a shower making him late for his boss's appoinment, in a text i tried explaining to him and that i would seek medical advice but he now has asked me to leave him alone, and not text him anymore. I am so embarrassed and dont know why this is happening, as it never happened 3 years ago when i was in a long term relationship, i am 64 years old has that something to do with it.

Did he stick his finger in your rectum if so that will sometimes make you have a uncontroled bowel movement and a lot of women who squirt when they have a orgasm sometimes do both but most likely your cause was because you hadn't had sex in a long time and it just caused you to lose control.

Bowel Movement during Intercourse can be Messy
Naturally, of course! But this tendency of women to have a bowel movement during intercourse are involuntary and are not due to any bowel disease or what, unless they are suffering from diarrhea and have sexual intercourse without first waiting for her diarrhea to subside through medication.

What Are The Situations To Cause Women To Have Bowel Movement During Sexual Intercourse?
Bowel movement during sexual intercourse usually happens to women when they experience a very intense sexual orgasm and more especially so if their stools are near their rectum during the time she had intercourse with her partner. Another factor that would tend to make the woman have a bowel movement during intercourse will be the size of her partners organ. Since the bowel is just besides the vagina, an extra large sized penis will exert pressure on the bowels of the woman. Added to this will be the very intense orgasm of the woman will put further pressure on her stools leading to the involuntary release of her stools from her rectum at the very height of her orgasm.

What should A Woman Do To Prevent Bowel Movement during Sexual Intercourse?
Never attempt to have intercourse while suffering a bout of diarrhea. Before you have sexual intercourse, be sure to move your bowels in the toilet. Following these two simple steps will prevent you from having bowel movement during your sexual intercourse.

This is exactly what has happened to me about 3 or 4 times. It is so embarrassing! I usually can't move my bowels just anytime just because I'm about to have sex. I don't know what to do! Would it help to use an enema about 1/2 to 1 hour before?

Not normal!!
I totally disagree that it is not a medical issue. I am a 33 year old lesbian and recently had the same issue. I believe it has nothing to do from penatration or is "normal". I have not told my doctor yet but I have to have a Laprascopy done and must say something. I say seek medical oppinion!!

i can relate! loss of bowels during orgasm...
I am a 32 year old female. No children, no births. I experienced my first loss of control of my bowels while having an orgasm 1 year ago. It was very embarressing and much like the earlier post, the guy never talked to me again.
It was watery and very loose.
I do have IBS, I do take Miralax. I don't remember if I had recently before the incident gave myself an enema, I usually do 1-2 X a month or so, and I honestly was thinking at the time if the guy was into anal sex, I would do whatever, I had liked that guy for a long time and I knew we we where staying together that night.
I have constipation- IBS; at lease that is what the doc said after a colonoscopy at age 27.
Since then, it has happened several (3-4) times. It is always during the height of orgasm.
It does not matter if I am having sex with a partner or masterbating.
I often masterbate by way of laying under the faucet in the bathtub.
I am wondering if it has anything to do with laying under the faucet? the water? or because of my IBS and being on medication to help me have bowel movements. I am scared to try the enema thing before hand, maybe that would cause more. I think I always have residual fecal matter in my rectum, that is why I worry to let my partner ever to have anal sex with me. I have enough problems down there!
I wonder if an antidiarrehal would be an idea? He takes the viagra, I take a loperamide? geesh, sex has become so clinical!
But on the serious note, I do have decreased pleasure during sex, and it has prevented me from orgasm during sex because I am so worried about embarressment.
I don't have a problem with orgasm, I can do it under the faucet in 3-4 min... but with my boyfriend, not so much if I am not sure at the time or it starts going through my mind.
He really wants me to orgasm too, and I don't want to keep bringing up that it is anxiety of loosing my bowels with him... not a very hot topic in the bed.

our awful dilemma
oh my god, i have exactly the same problem and i agree with you totally. i am at my wits end and terrified to let myself go sexually for this reason, what is loperamide?
the medication you take for ibs (your ibs problem is the same as mine too) what does that do for you as i can find nothing to help me but laxatives which, naturally dont help my embarrassing problem!!

This has happened to me 3 or 4 times. It is incredibly embarassing. I am 43 years old and every time it has happened it has been during orgasm. I have no idea it has happened until after. I feel so dirty and disgusting. I would love to find what causes this and a way to stop it. I went to my dr yesterday for help and he had never heard of it happening before... All he could suggest was an enema before sex.
I did have my tubes tied last year and I thought/think that maybe this is all part of it because it never happened before?

Hi algie and welcome to ehealth: I kind of go along with the tubes tied theory...They could have done some movement of your rectum or bowels...You may want to talk to the surgeon who did this surgery...Take care...

Bowel Movement During Sex
this happens to me almost every time my husband and I have sex... usually it's with me on top and my orgasm is so intense fecal matter comes out too. Sometimes when I masterbate it also happens. He's great about it and never says anything. We clean up and resume our sexual encounter. It is getting embarrasing, it just happened and I started to cry because I was so embarrassed this time... ugh!!!

I'm going to make a guess on this one, but I think I am not too far off...First, the membrane separating the vaginal canal and rectum or color is paper thin...When a man's penis enters us and hits on possibly a part of this vaginal membrance that disturbs the bowel movement, it must move...Thus it expels...Now add to this that as we age, so do our muscles...They are not as tight as before and a Hysterectomy has made this worse...I, too, have had this surgery....I would suggest doing your kegel exercises...Do them when you are just sitting around...Make it kind of a habit and the contraction of doing this squeezing can make for some great sex with your husband...

This is something that you may want to take up with your doctor...But, I question if you want to delve into any surgeries to eliminate this...One more thing...What about taking an Adult Glycerin Supposority before you have sex...This will relieve any BM that you have in your colon that is ready to expel.....I hope this helps...Take care...
