Question: hi i am a 21 yr old male. okay i have been constipated a week now and ive never had this kind of constipation before. usually after 2 or 3 days id be able to just get everything out. but this time is very different. i noticed i was constipated when i couldnt remember the last time i used the bathroom, at least 3 days. when i did use the bathroom finally on the 3rd day, my fecal was coming out long(2-3 inch) and as skinny as a pencil. i took murilax that day and the next day i had very little diarrhea so that didnt help. then i went to extreme measure...i dont remember what it was called but i had to insert a small tube into my rectum and squeeze liquid into myself. i could feel it working immediately, so i held it in there for a couple min and then tried to use the restroom. it did help, but nothing huge came out. nothing that would seem big enough to cause constipation. so the next day i tried it again(this was yesterday)and the same thing, helped out a little bit but nothing large came out. and im not sure if its constipation anymore, i really feel like my rectum or whatever has shrunk or closed up! i was somewhat dehydrated last weekend but the last couple day ive been drinking plenty of water and im getting no improvement at all. what do i do, what is wrong with me???

I think that you should take Psyllium Husk capsules, this will give you additional fibre and add bulk to your stools. Some vitamins and minerals in tablet form, cause constipation. I know that D3 has this side effect. Google "which vitamins and minerals cause constipation" to check this out.

I know this may sound a little crazy but if your dog is constipated she can eat a little canned pumpkin. it is kinda like a natural laxative. I do not recommend suppositories at all. How ever you can use a stool softener.they usually come in the form of a gel cap. The active ingredient you are looking for is Ducosate Sodium. We use this all the time at the Vet clinic I work at.

If you feel you must give her something, try Miralax. It is very safe and effective. It does not cause gas or diarrhea, it is a stool softener that helps to move the bowels without any chemical stimulants. For a very small dog, just a teaspoon in a half-cup of water should do it.

All you need to do is drink 2 or 3 big bottles of water, all it is is where your stools have hardened up. I have IBS my self and this happens to me if I don't drink enough water, it has to be water.

Are you taking any medication? Anything with codeine in will make you constipated. Drink lots more fluids and get more fibre in your diet, if tat doesn't work then see a doctor.

Some things such as narcotics, antidepressants and other medications can cause nearly constant constipation. Some women have constipation every month associated with their period. For some people, "normal" may be going once every 2 or 3 days. Once a day isn't normal for everyone.
