Constipation

At Med365 we have a wide variety of products designed to help with Constipation, but what is Constipation?

Chronic constipation is infrequent bowel movements or difficult passage of stools that persists for several weeks or longer. Constipation is generally described as having fewer than three bowel movements a week.

Signs and symptoms of chronic constipation include: Passing fewer than three stools a week, Having lumpy or hard stools, Straining to have bowel movements, Feeling as though there's a blockage in your rectum that prevents bowel movements, Feeling as though you can't completely empty the stool from your rectum, Needing help to empty your rectum, such as using your hands to press on your abdomen and using a finger to remove stool from your rectum

Constipation may be considered chronic if you've experienced two or more of these symptoms for the last three months.
