Constipation

Constipation is a temporary condition characterized by infrequent bowel movements (BM), passing hard stools or straining when you do have a bowel movement. A change in diet is often all it takes to reduce your chances of becoming constipated. In some cases constipation can be a sign of a more serious condition, especially if you experience symptoms such as bloody stool or rectal pain.
