What is Constipation?

Constipation is a condition of the digestive system where the sufferer has hard feces that are difficult to expel. In most cases, this occurs because the colon has absorbed too much of the water from the food that is in the colon. The slower the food moves through your digestive tract, the more water the colon will absorb from food. Consequently, the feces become dry and hard. Defecation (emptying the bowels) can become very painful and in some serious cases there may be symptoms of bowel obstruction. When the constipation is very severe; when the constipation prevents the passage of feces and gas, it is called obstipation.

Causes of Constipation

  • Insufficient fiber in the diet.
  • Insufficient activity or exercise or immobility.
  • Eating large amounts of dairy products.
  • Stress.
  • Pregnancy brings about hormonal changes which can make a woman more susceptible to constipation. Also, the uterus may compress the intestine, slowing down the passage of the food.
  • A change in routine, such as during travelling.
  • Problems with the colon or rectum.
