Frequently Asked Questions

What are symptoms of constipation?

Generally people with chronic constipation have less than one bowel movement every couple days (or less than three a week). Constipation causes stool to become dry and hard, often having a “lumpy” texture. As stool becomes difficult to pass, people have to strain harder to have a bowel movement. This can be accompanied by the feeling of incomplete passage of stool.

When should I see a doctor about constipation?

Constipation is common, and therefore it’s not always necessary to consult a doctor when you think you may be experiencing constipation. Some more serious symptoms of constipation which may require professional medical attention include constipation which persists for three weeks despite changes to diet or lifestyle, feelings of intense abdominal pain, or pain which inhibits movement, unintentional weight loss, blood or mucus in your stool, the inability to pass stool, or the development of hemorrhoids as a result of straining to go the bathroom.

Why am I constipated?

Diet is the leading cause of constipation. Too many processed foods or a diet low in fiber can make your stool hard, dry, and difficult to pass. Certain medications can cause constipation, such as opioids taken after surgery. A sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, and dehydration are also common causes.
