When bowel movements become less regular and stools become difficult to transfer, this is known as constipation. Changes in diet or routine, as well as a lack of fibre, are the most common causes.
Having fewer than three bowel movements a week is, technically, the definition of constipation. However, how often you “go” varies widely from person to person. Some people have bowel movements several times a day while others have them only one to two times a week. Whatever your bowel movement pattern is, it is unique and normal for you – as long as you do not stray too far from your pattern.
Other key features that often define constipation include:
- Your stools are dry and hard
- Your bowel movement is painful and stools are difficult to pass
- You have a feeling that you have not fully emptied your bowels
Constipation negatively affects the digestion, clearing of toxins from the body, energy levels and the absorption of nutrients.
