Learn how to manage your symptoms and minimize discomfort.
While it might seem embarrassing, constipation is a common problem that affects many children and adults at different times of their life. While many medications are available to help get things moving, there are a lot of natural methods you can try to find relief.
Constipation can happen to anyone, but what’s defined as constipation can vary from person to person. Having a bowel movement anywhere from three times a day to three times a week is considered normal. If you go three times a day, not going for two days might qualify as constipation. On the other hand, if you go every few days, constipation might be more like a week.
