I'm totally terrified. First, I'm an 18 yr old female. Still in High School. I have never had Sex, any form of Sex (anal, oral,etc).
So, a while ago I started the habit of sitting on the toilet for hours even when I didn't need to. I would sit on it as a sitting chair almost.

Now, my anus is literally open all the time. it's not completely shut, and wherever I am, I fart. It's not voluntary, my anus literally releases this and I can't control it.

I also have abdominal problem (not severe) that my stomach would be moving all the time. I fart a lot (like 5 times in 10 mins). I exercise now, eat food slowly, take over-the-counter things like Gas-X. This is not helping at all.

I want to have a Doctor's visit, but right now I'm so shy and I don't know if she'll do anything. But I'm planning to visit her.

I would appreciate it if someone can help me in any way.

Thank you for asking!
Farting is not to be shy of. All you need is good toilet habits that is sit for 10-15 minutes only after morning breakfast and then avoid all the rest of the day impulses to defecate. Get fibrous diets and healthy. Farting is a gas by the result of bacterial fermentation of food residues in the gut. Get to an endocrinologist and let him sort out the cause for you.Every one farts man. Keep it cool. Your frequency is an issue and the reason is your unfriendly recent toilet habits. It has exacerbated your gastrocolic reflexes and thus farting. Any way nothing to worry about. It will be fine soon.
Take care
