Answer: Hello! There is nothing to be disgusting about it. Yes it is somewhat common to have trouble in controlling bowel movements or gas after vaginal birth also known as Anal incontinence. It happens when the tear is deep enough to involve the anal sphincter. Most women regain control of their bowels within a few months of giving birth, as the area heals.  Exercising the muscles that support your bladder, uterus, and bowel (pelvic floor muscles) can prevent or even reverse anal incontinence. So it is recommended to do regular Kegel exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. If Kegels don't help, make an appointment with a pelvic rehab physical therapist. Many women with anal incontinence, as well as those who have difficulty emptying their bowel, see improvement after pelvic floor therapy. In the meantime, you may want to wear special absorbent underwear to handle bowel leaks,these are easily found in the chemist shops. Take care
