What is Constipation?

If you have difficulty moving your bowels, you may be suffering from constipation. Constipation is when a person either moves their bowels infrequently, less than once every 3 days or has to strain when passing stool. Persistent constipation should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by a physician for an accurate diagnosis and constipation treatment plan and exclude a serious illness or condition.

What is Chronic Constipation?

Chronic constipation is defined as the presence of two or more of the following:

Straining during at least 25% of bowel movements;

Lumpy or hard stools in at least 25% of bowel movements;

The sensation of incomplete evacuations for at least 25% of bowel movements;

The sensation of anorectal blockage for at least 25% of bowel movements;

Manual maneuvers to facilitate at least 25% of bowel movements;

Fewer than three bowel movements each week.

What Causes Constipation?

There are many causes of constipation. The most common is simply poor eating habits. Many people don’t realize it, but they eat a low fiber diet, do not take in enough fluids, or don’t get enough exercise. Constipation can occur at any age, from newborns to older people. Although the problem is seen more in females than in males, the cause of constipation is multifactorial. The issue may arise in the rectum or colon or because of an external factor.
