Bowel retraining can help to minimise slips due to faecal incontinence by making your bowels accustomed to voiding at the same time every day.
Set aside 10 – 20 minutes each morning to sit on the toilet. Relax and gently rock back and forth to stimulate the bowels or use a lubricated finger in a circular motion to relax the anal sphincter. Don't strain – if you don't have a bowel movement the first time, repeat the exercise the next day.
