Hi Bunks your story sounds scary i would advise you to wear a pad like tends there good and absorb well but i don't know were you would dispose of them unless you brought a zip bag with you and the imodium works good fro me but than i have problems with hard stools after wards so be carefull not to take to many,i have never tried the retal things my retal area is to sore to insert one. If it was me i would be very nervous to go in the woods on a feild trip. Good luck with your trip Bunks. Your Friend Jenn
Sorry this is a bit gross.....
I'm off on a field trip with uni on Monday, for the week. We will be staying in dorms at night with (thank god!) toilet and shower blocks.
My problem is, we'll be out in the field all day with no loo access. This means going in a hole... not pleasant when you have the squirts. I'm not flaring but I still have watery, 'splattery' BMs (sorry it's the only term i could think of!), sometimes quite urgent.
Does anyone have any tips for handling this? I was thinking Imodium might help. Has anyone had any experience using it for a week? (I may need a sherpa to carry all my loo paper!)
I'm getting quite worried about having an accident in the middle of nowhere, which is stressing me out and making the squirts worse.. which is stressing me out even more...
Also has anyone had to go in a hole before? Any tips for not messing the back of your boots or jeans with the splatters?
