What is Constipation?
Being constipated means your bowel movements are tough or happen less often than normal. Almost everyone goes through it sooner or later.
Constipation refers to bowel movements that are infrequent or hard to pass.
Constipation is a common cause of painful defecation. Severe constipation includes obstipation (failure to pass stools or gas) and fecal impaction .
Constipation happens when the colon absorbs too much water, or if the muscles in the colon are contracting slowly or poorly so that the stool moves too slowly and loses more water.
