It's: safe but not "normal" There is corrective surgical relief for you!!! This weakness may worsen with age and should be dealt with before its a "bigger" problem! Hope this helps Dr Z

No: This is not a good solution to your anal sphincter problem. Get in for a visit with your OB GYN for evaluation. To your Best Health! Hope this helps!
