Constipation occurs when the colon absorbs too much water. This can be brought on by a range of factors, including but not limited to:
• Strong medications, especially narcotics, antidepressants and iron pills
• Dietary supplements
• Change in diet or not eating enough soluble fiber
• Too much dairy
• Sedentary lifestyle
If you have fewer than three bowel movements a week, stools that are hard, dry, or lumpy, difficulty passing stool or feeling that not all stool has passed, you may be constipated. Less than one bowel movement a week is considered severe constipation.
