The lifetime of anal intercourse increased from 27% to 36%. It has been widely assumed to be
one of the major causes of fecal incontinence. Heterosexual anal intercourse is rarely
discussed in the scientific literature.
In this descriptive cross-sectional observational study, we reviewed fecal incontinency in
patients who came to Tehran Legal Organization from January to November 2019 and have
complaints of AnoReceptive Intercourse(ARI).
The mean age of patients was 29.18±10.5 years old. The mean Wexner score was 4.78±4.6.
The most common type of anal intercourse was unwanted (47%). Thirty-two patients of 40
patients had a gap in their external anal sphincter in endo anal sonography. Stool consistency
divided into 3 groups as the most common was soft (70%). There was also no difference in
Wexner score between patients who had gaps in their ext anal sphincter and those who had
not.
