Chronic Constipation

Chronic constipation is a common condition that is characterized by difficult, infrequent, or perceived incomplete evacuation of bowel movements.

 

An individual may exhibit a broad range of symptoms of constipation depending on his or her bowel habits, diet, and age. These are some common problems a person may have if he or she is constipated:

  • Difficulty in starting or completing a bowel movement
  • Infrequent and difficult passage of stool
  • Passing hard stool after prolonged straining
  • 3 or fewer bowel movements a week
  • Willing to “washout” current constipation aides
