  • Here I’ll tell you something if you ever feel you can’t push shit out your blocked up take 6 laxative chocolate pieces and fuck… You will feel the thunder

  • I don’t know if I’m constipated or what…..I go to pass stool and it comes out but then feels like it’s blocked and more is up there. I’m also going less than I used to. I’m passing stool twice a day maximum

  • I eat plenty of fibre, drink SO MUCH water my pee is clear, and I average 20k steps a day as well as exercise. I still have to take so many prescribed laxatives or I don’t go. I have got a redundant colon and short of surgery to remove the excess; I don’t know what I can do:(

  • My son had a problem with constipation, now we are giving him products of Planet Ayurvedasuch as Vara Churna or Triphala Powder. This has proved very beneficial for him.

  • I’ve had an issue where it feels like the sphincter doesn’t open up like it should on one side. I don’t understand what’s going on in there. But it’s getting pretty bad. I’m concerned.

  • I’ve been constipated since May 2020…I’ve taken laxatives 2 times this July and August and it freaking work but after I stopped taking laxatives (which is also not good if you always take them) my day is always inside that toilet! and hey I cry when they come out because it hurts so bad you’ll just say this to yourself “GIVING BIRTH IS MORE PAINFUL BUDDY”…..

  • This is glorious, I been tryin to find out about “how to cure constipation” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Qaneah Neynna Takeover (just google it )? Ive heard some super things about it and my friend got amazing success with it.

  • So I’ve dealt with constipation off and on for a long time. And it seems to be accompanied by really sharp abdominal pains localized around my right hip? Yeah, any clue as to what that might be about? (After a nasty bought of constipation, or even if I don’t get constipated but just slow down a little it can hurt, and then stay sore for a few days afterward.)

  • My grandpa always said “eat lots of mellow greens and that should loosen up those hard brown logs” but in spite of this information, we always had problems flushing his fecals down the toilet. Last week by accident he lost his wrist watch down the toilet bowl along with a giant brown, gooey ‘responder’.

  • my poop is LITERALLY in tHeRe and ITS LIKE A STONE AND it’s IN ANOTHER DIRECTION AND I CANT PoOp. I didn’t SlEEp ToDay please heLp me ive struggling for 4 days to geT THis thing out I’m in pain ); I miss reliving like before ); I only eat vitamin d that’s the only pill

  • Ok so I have been dealing with constipation the past 5 days and I’m kinda hesitant about some things maybe you guys can help me, I do take laxatives and I actually do go to the toilet and poop (not a lot) but there is that one piece that isnt coming out so my mom investigated it and to told it’s like a pimple in your bum but at the same I can’t believe cuz I kinda feel like its blocking some of my poop, can someone pls tell me who’s right?

  • So you telling me…..all i had to do was straighten my posture on the toilet and my poop would come out?


  • I drink warm water throughout the day then also I feel constipation and I go to washroom once in a week, really hard problem of constipation.

  • diarrhea with constipation? is what I have, help!?! and Im vegan whole fruit and veggie not processed food. Im lucky to go once a day. Im having an endoscopy and colonoscopy and I work out

  • GUYS! This is from a professional in getting constipation (since I was 3 I would get it constantly) so here is some tips.

    1. RECOGNIZE IT EARLY, I used to go without pooping for 2 months, IT WAS HELL to say the least, it feels like your toes are full of poo as well. So if you have gone past when usually poop (it’s different for everyone I know some go as late as once a week mines usually 1-2 days) you probably are constipated
    2. Eat fiber! Fiber helps with poo. It can help and prevent future constipation.
    3. Often I find that drinking water doesn’t actually HELP pushing put the turd, but it helps prevent, so I don’t honestly recommend water
    4. GET A SQUATY POTTY. They help you get in the pooping position that helps it come out easier, I swear by them a LOT
    5. LAXATIVES AND STOOL SOFTNERS DON’T WORK ON EVERYONE. I’ve tried stool softeners and laxatives EVERY TIME I’ve had constipation (more then 10 times I’ve had constipation). They have not worked.
    6. MAGNESIUM MIGHT WORK. I have used a magnesia drink with constipation and it worked pretty good!
    7. TRY VASELINE. Now this might sound really gross and stuff, but putting some Vaseline between your cheeks (you know what cheeks constipated peeps). It can help the poo slide out. I’ve tried it. But It doesn’t work EVERY time!
    8. SUPPOSITORIES I SWEAR BY EVERY TIME. if you have done everything you can try a suppository. THEY WORK IN 15-30 WAS MINUTES. Look up how to use them if you don’t know how.
    9. Somtimes, nothing will work for you, you just gotta push and scream it out. I did it just now, it hurt really bad it felt like I was giving birth to a 30 pound poo. But it came out. I RECOMMEND TAKING A BATH AFTER THIS CAUSE YOUR BUTT WILL REALLY BE SORE AND HURT! The bath often helps with the pain

    I really hope these tips might work for you and reply of they did constipated peeps! If they didn’t you can reply to that too and maybe say what DID work and I might add that too <3

  • I swear I literally got constipated once every week it’s awful I’m sitting on the toilet watching this right now and it just came out �� from now on I’m gunna eat healthy bc I swear it’s what I’m eating I eat to much lol

  • As specialist, I think Erectodom Secrets can be great way to last longer in bed. Why not give it a chance? perhaps it will work for you too.
