Constipation symptoms

Doctor for Constipation Treatment in West Delhi


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.
Though occasional constipation is very common, some people experience chronic constipation that can interfere with their ability to go about their daily tasks. Chronic constipation may also cause people to strain excessively in order to have a bowel movement.
Treatment for chronic constipation depends in part on the underlying cause. However, in some cases, a cause is never found.


Signs and symptoms of chronic constipation include:
  • • Passing fewer than three stools a week
  • • Having lumpy or hard stools
  • • 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.

    When to see a Doctor?

    Make an appointment with your doctor if you experience unexplained and persistent changes in your bowel habits

    Constipation most commonly occurs when waste or stool moves too slowly through the digestive tract or cannot be eliminated effectively from the rectum, which may cause the stool to become hard and dry. Chronic constipation has many possible causes.

      Blockages in the colon or rectum

    Blockages in the colon or rectum may slow or stop stool movement. Causes include:

    • • Tiny tears in the skin around the anus (anal fissure)
    • • A blockage in the intestines (bowel obstruction)
    • • Colon cancer
    • • Narrowing of the colon (bowel stricture)
    • • Other abdominal cancer that presses on the colon
    • • Rectal cancer
    • • Rectum bulge through the back wall of the vagina (rectocele)

    Problems with the nerves around the colon and rectum

    Neurological problems can affect the nerves that cause muscles in the colon and rectum to contract and move stool through the intestines. Causes include:

    • • Damage to the nerves that control bodily functions (autonomic neuropathy)
    • • Multiple sclerosis
    • • Parkinson’s disease
    • • Spinal cord injury
    • • Stroke
