Greetings from New York, this is Dr. Jerry E. I'm so glad you asked this question, let me give you some medical information now.

How long have you had these symptoms?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

about 6 months but recently it's about every time I have a bowel movement.

have you ever had an accident similar to today's in the past?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

yes about 3 times, especially when the bowel is loose,

Okay, thank you for that information. Also, is this condition worsened by consuming certain foods or by different physical activities?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I haven't noticed with certain foods. The other day, I had a bowel movement and then got on the elliptical and I had an accident. I haven't seen any blood. When I'm constipated it's like it stuck but I don't feel like i have to go any more.

How often do you experience constipation?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

maybe once every month or so. Sometimes I know why I'm constipated because of the wrong foods and not drinking enough water.

Have you had a colonoscopy?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Not yet. I received a dr's name about a week ago. I just want to get an idea of what could be happening? It's getting very embarrassing.

I understand completely, and want you to know what you are going through is actually very common, so please do not feel embarassed or ashamed...

What you have described seems to be irritable bowel syndrome, which is a common disorder that impacts your large intestine (colon). It is important to see your doctor though to confirm this...
