Constipation is a common problem that causes difficulty in having a bowel movement. The bowel movement may be: 

  • Too hard
  • Too small that there’s a frequent need to stool
  • Difficult to pass, taking more than 2 minutes to come out
  • Only occur fewer than 3 times per week
  • Pain in the rectum or cramping
  • Small amount of blood on wiping 

The frequency of bowel movements will vary person to person. However if there is a change or reduction in frequency, this may be constipation. 

Constipation may be a result of: 

  • Poor diet
  • Lack of activity
  • Side effect of medication
  • Disease of the digestive system 

Basic steps to help improve bowel movements include: 

  • Eat more fiber, including green leafy vegetables
  • Drink at least 2 Litres of water (unless you have underlying renal or heart disease)
  • Get at least 30 minutes of cardio daily
  • Don’t hold your stool, go when needed 

Consult with a healthcare provider today to make sure your symptoms are not secondary to any other underlying condition.
