By Dr. Luis Sanz Expert

Dr. Sanz explains if a history of anal sex can increase a fecal incontinence problem.

Dr. Sanz:
That’s a very good question. Yes, they do, like homosexuals have eventually permanent damage to this sphincter with multiple tears. So that eventually has to be reconstructed but sometimes it is not just a question of the tear, it is the question of this sphincter becoming very thin and the tears are multiple. So this is a major damage to the anal canal.
