If you find yourself with an urge to defecate but are unable to, you are likely constipated. Most constipation is a result of diet and will go away on its own. Some medications may also cause constipation. If it lasts longer than a couple of days, seek treatment. If left untreated, serious complications may develop.
- When feeling constipated, you can try increasing your fiber intake by eating foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. Staying hydrated by drinking enough water is important. Regular physical activity can help stimulate bowel movements. Avoiding processed foods and prioritizing a balanced diet can improve digestion. Creating a consistent bathroom routine and allowing yourself ample time can help.
