What is chronic constipation
Constipation is one of the most common digestive problems, it is a condition in which you have fewer than three bowel movements in a week, and your stools are hard, dry, and small, making them painful and difficult to pass.
Constipation can be due to:
- low amount of fluids and/or fibers in the diet
- hemorrhoids and rectal prolapse
- slow peristalsis (movements of the bowel)
