  • That's a medical concern and it should be addressed by a doctor, soon. Crohn's disease can cause it, or it could be some other form of anal incontinence. Either way, he should see a doctor.

  • i don't know the name of the condition but there is a thing where the sphincter muscles around the anus aren't as strong as they should be, which could cause leaking.

    i remember seeing a show once about a mom who's two boys (who must've been preteens atleast) both had to wear diapers because they just did not realize when they were going to the bathroom

  • I would definitely nag your DH into heading to the doctors...this sounds like something that won't just clear up on its own. And embarassing as it sounds, it would be more embarassing to keep having this problem that could be fixed than to ignore it. It could be bowel incontinence? Either way...have him seen by the doc!

  • he needs a doc. Leakage is never normal, or something that just happens. it could just be a torn muscle in sphincter, or something more serious, like rectal cancer. make him go.

  • Just out of curiosity, he hasn't taken Alli, has he? I heard some girls in my office talking about that there is all these people who are having problems with that now after taking it! Even after stopping they still have the problem
