  • Who is Navina Bowel Care for?

    The Navina Bowel Care range offers a holistic solution for bowel dysfunction, with products designed to prevent accidental bowel leakage and/or chronic or severe constipation. These symptoms can occur without any clear underlying cause, which is referred to as a functional bowel disorder. The same symptoms often occur due to conditions affecting the nervous system such as Multiple Sclerosis, Spina Bifida or a Spinal Cord Injury. Other causes of the symptoms could be injuries to the pelvic floor sustained during childbirth or surgery such as low anterior resection syndrome (LARS).

  • What is chronic constipation?

    Chronic constipation is referred to as infrequent bowel movements or difficulty of passing stool that persists for more than three months. The symptoms of chronic constipation are similar to those of regular constipation, although more serious symptoms can occur. Symptoms of chronic constipation include:

    • Less than 3 bowel movements per week
    • Lumpy or hard stool
    • Feeling bloated (a swollen tummy)
    • Abdominal pain
    • Straining during defecation
    • Sensation of blockage or obstruction in rectum
    • Feeling of incomplete emptying
    • Need to facilitate emptying by pressing the abdomen or using a finger to pass stool
  • What is bowel leakage?

    Bowel leakage or accidental bowel leakage, also known as fecal incontinence, is the loss of normal control of your bowel, which leads to leakage of solid or liquid stool, mucus or gas.

    Symptoms of bowel leakage include:

    • Feeling a strong or sudden urge to pass stool.
    • Not making it to the toilet in time
    • Not being able to control bowel movements
    • Having accidents due to not being aware of/feeling the need to go
    • Streaks or strains of stool in the underwear
    • Constipation – trouble passing stool
