How to use "Looseness of the bowels" in context?

When talking about bowel looseness, often people think of diarrhea or constipation. However, bowel looseness can also refer to a condition called hemorrhoids. In fact, hemorrhoids can be the most common cause of bowel looseness.

When the veins in your rectum become enlarged, they can prolapse ( Contract). This can dislodge blood and other fluid from the tissues and create a feeling of looseness or fullness in the rectum.

If the prolapse is left untreated, the pressure and irritation it creates can cause hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are swollen veins that sit on the exterior of the rectum.
