Constipation, or difficulty having a bowel movement, is a common problem. About four million Americans have chronic constipation lasting three months or more in which they strain to produce hard, dry stool. Constipation is a condition characterized by infrequent bowel movements, difficulty in moving one’s bowels, and abnormally hard stools. Constipation is a very nonstandard condition because the frequency and character of bowel movements differ significantly from person to person. In most cases, constipation is not indicative of a medical problem. However, one should seek medical advice if constipation continues for an extended period of time, is accompanied by unusual pain or blood in the stool, or does not respond to home remedies.
