Fecal incontinence is actually a more common condition than commonly thought. Lower bowel leakage can be a significant problem in both self care and in institutional health care. Anal plugs (informally known as butt plugs) are an effective means to improve the quality of life for those suffering from anal or fecal incontinence.
The most popular anal plug is the Peristeen Anal Plug which is easy to use and inserted just like a suppository. This particular product can be used for up to 12 hours and easily removed to pass a stool
Some sufferers of fecal incontinence have controlled the issue using protective underwear (adult diapers) or absorptive incontinence pads. Alternatively, some users have found butt plugs so effective that they can be used as an alternative to adult diapers. Anal plugs have also been effective in controlling odor.
Anal Plugs Features
Anal plugs are generally made of medical grade foam which expands upon insertion to prevent stool leakage. They gently expand upon coming in contact with moisture from the lining of the anal cavity. They block stools, yet still allow air to pass. Anal plugs have a small string attached for easy removal. Anal plugs often have a very positive effect on the lives of people whose quality of life has been effected by anal incontinence.
What is Butt plug
There are many different shapes and sizes of anal plugs, but they all serve the same purpose. Anal plugs are shaped foam products that are inserted into the rectum to prevent the leakage of stool.
They come in various lengths and widths to suit the needs of an individual. These products are usually made out of soft materials like latex or silicone, which make them safe for even sensitive skin. Butt plugs come in a variety of sizes and levels of softness and rigidity. These medical-grade foam plugs are slightly absorbent but can allow airflow.
Anal Plug Sizing
Medical experts recommend that anal plugs are fitted to each person individually based off of body type. A doctor or medical professional can measure your size and then help you select the best size for your needs. Anal plugs come in a variety of sizes so it is important to find one with a size that is most comfortable for you.
If the plug is too big, it will be uncomfortable and may not work properly. It is recommended that people should try the smallest size first and to ask a health care professional with experience of plugs for help.
