Can't go pooh? Constipated?

Can't go pooh? Constipated? Topic: Can't go pooh? Constipated?

Question: Hi I've been a little constipated for the past days. How can I cure it? I can't go pooh that much and when I try only a few drops come. I haven't gotten my period this month and I think I got it but I'm not sure because i researched about constipation and it said that sometimes you get rectal bleeding. Is it that or just my period? Plz help me find the problem to this. I told my mom about the constipation. So she's going to buy prunes. Is there any other way to cure this? Thanks so much.!

Do you drink alot of milk? Dairy is a stomache killer. Constipation is awful, I've had it on and off for as long as i can remember. It usually fixes itself or with diet. Because your period is due this is most likely the cause. Sometimes your period screws up your intestines, either you get loose bowels or constipated. Its awful. And it happens for no reasons sometimes. If you bled you may have torn your rectum, as terrible as that sounds, but its not, just think of it as a cut. See if the prunes help, try fibre (not too much or youll get the other extreme) and see if it clears up. If it doesn't and your still getting blood then its probably a more serious problem.

Constipation or irregularity, is a condition of the digestive system where a person (or animal) experiences hard feces that are difficult to eliminate; it may be extremely painful, and in severe cases (fecal impaction) lead to symptoms of bowel obstruction. Obstipation refers to severe constipation. Causes of constipation may be dietary, hormonal, a side effect of medications, an illness or disorder, and anatomical. Treatment is with a change in dietary and exercise habits. The main causes of constipation include: Hardening of the feces Insufficient intake of dietary fiber Dehydration Medication, e.g. diuretics and those containing iron, calcium, aluminium Paralysis or slowed transit, where peristaltic action is diminished or absent, so that feces are not moved along Hypothyroidism (slow-acting thyroid gland) Hypokalemia Injured anal sphincter (patulous anus) Medications, such as loperamide, opioids (e.g. codeine & morphine) and certain antidepressants Severe illness due to other causes; occasionally colds or flu Acute porphyria (a very rare inherited condition) Lead poisoning Dyschezia syn(usually the result of suppressing defecation) Constriction, where part of the intestine or rectum is narrowed or blocked, not allowing feces to pass Strictures Diverticula Tumors, either of the bowel or surrounding tissues Retained foreign body Psychosomatic constipation, based on anxiety or unfamiliarity with surroundings. Functional constipation Constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome, characterized by a combination of constipation and abdominal discomfort and/or pain. In people without medical problems, the main intervention is the increase of fluids (preferably water) and dietary fiber. The latter may be achieved by consuming more vegetables and fruit, whole meal bread and by adding linseeds to one's diet. The routine non-medical use of laxatives is to be discouraged as this may result in bowel action becoming dependent upon their use. Enemas can be used to provide a form of mechanical stimulation. Laxatives may be necessary in people in whom dietary intervention is not effective or inappropriate. Stimulant laxatives (e.g. senna) are generally avoided, as they may worsen crampy sensations commonly experienced in constipation. In various conditions (such as the use of codeine or morphine), combinations of hydrating (e.g. lactulose or glycols), bulk-forming (e.g. psyllium) and stimulant agents may be necessary. Many of the products are widely available over-the-counter. Enemas and clysters are a remedy occasionally used for hospitalized patients in whom the constipation has proven to be severe, dangerous in other ways, or resistant to laxatives. Sorbitol, glycerin and arachis oil suppositories can be used. Severe cases may require phosphate solutions introduced as enemas. Constipation that resists all the above measures requires physical intervention. Manual disimpaction (the physical removal of impacted stool) is done under sedation or a general anesthetic—this avoids pain and loosens the anal sphincter. In alternative and traditional medicine, colonic irrigation, enemas, exercise, diet and herbs are used to treat constipation. Constipation is usually easier to prevent than to treat. The relief of constipation with osmotic agents, i.e. lactulose, Polyethyleneglycol(PEG), or magnesium salts, should immediately be followed with prevention using increased fiber(fruits and vegetables) and a nightly decreasing dose of osmotic laxative. With continuing narcotic use, for instance, nightly doses of osmotic agents can be given indefinitely (without harm) to cause a daily bowel movement.

This Site Might Help You. RE: why am i always constipated? I have always had problems with constipation when travelling but these past few months I have been extremely constipated no matter what.

Sometimes when you strain to have a bowel movement, you will bleed from hemorrhoids. This is pretty much from a swollen vein. Make sure to drink a lot of water, and check out this website. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders... http://health.howstuffworks.com/home-rem...

Fiber, fiber, fiber. The more you eat, the more you'll poop. :) When I was a child, I was always constipated and at one point I even had to have suppositories (yes, gross I know). Fiber bars work wonders. It's a dark brown colored wafer, you just eat it, then wait for a few hours.
