Fecal incontinence during flatulation

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Yesterday, I was out at a mall and flatulated so strongly,that after urinating I was surprised to find fecal matter in my vagina. Does this happened a- lot in women ? Is it serious ?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
