What is Constipation?

Being constipated means that you have fewer bowel movements than normal or that you have difficulty having bowel movements. While definition and causes of constipation can vary from person to person, generally speaking if you have fewer than three bowel movements a week, you are constipated.

Symptoms of Constipation

Common signs of constipation include:

  • • Having hard stools or small pellet-like stools.
  • • Having less than three bowel movements a week.
  • • Straining to defecate.
  • • Feeling as though you cannot fully empty your bowel

If constipation accompanies nausea, vomiting, inability to pass gas, blood in the stool, or sudden weight loss, seek medical attention.

Treatment Options for Constipation

Often constipation is a temporary condition that can be helped by lifestyle changes:

  • • Eating a diet full of fibre-rich foods, like fruits and vegetables.
  • • Limiting the intake of certain foods, such as fast foods, white bread and some processed foods that can contribute to constipation.
  • • Drinking more liquids, especially water.
  • Exercising more frequently. Daily if possible.
  • • Acting on the urge to go right away.

If you have tried these and are still suffering constipation then consider using a stool softener or stimulant laxatives. Always read the label on the product you try and seek medical advice if your symptoms persist.
