If you're experiencing anal seepage or anal leakage then it means that your bowel muscles are not working properly to hold in the bowel movements.

Anal leakage can also be caused by infections or bacteria in your poop or intestines.

I would speak to a doctor if the anal leakage continues for more than a few days because anal leakage is not normal and should not be happening.
