In brief: See a doctor

I would follow up with a urogynecologist or colorectal surgeon for a full evaluation.
Fecal incontinence can occur because of damage to the sphincter muscle or from nerve disorder. In the meantime, try increasing fiber in diet or with supplements. Sometimes a more firm stool is easier to hold in. Look for Butterfly pad at Target or Walmart, pad made for fecal incont.
