What is constipation?

Constipation is broadly defined as “unsatisfactory defecation characterized by infrequent stools, difficult stool passage or both” *


Put simply, constipation is a condition in which an individual experiences irregular or uncomfortable bowel movements or delayed defecation (passing of stool), where the quantity of stool reduces and becomes hard to pass.


Constipation can be occasional or frequent. Generally, a person is considered to be constipated when bowel movements result in the passage of small amounts of hard and dry stool. Every individual has different bowel patterns^.
