  • you need to get something immediately to relieve the constipatrion. enema, suppository..something. The longer it gets the dryer the stool in the sigmoid colon get, the hardewr it gets to move. Long term constipation can be dangerous. In the future increase the water, fiber and fruit in your diet.

  • like everyone said a stol softener would work but if it doesnt you could have IBS and stress causes rouble going or might need a change in diet. I had problems since my senior year in High school and if im under stress im miserable.

  • OK, I wouldnt suggest administering an emena on your own, you may be compacted, you can try a stool softener but that fact that there is blood makes me worried. You should call your doctor, let them know what is happening and they can make a decision on what to do next.

  • SOME TIMES OLD REMEDIES ARE GOOD. WARM /HOT PRUNE JUICE IS GOOD. TRY IT FOR BREAKFAST FOR AWHILE. IF YOU LIKE COFFEE, FOLLOWING IT WITH IT WORKS TOO. THE MORE YOU CAN RELY ON MORE NATURAL REMEDIES THE BEST. YOU BODY WILL BE COME DEPENDENT ON LAXATIVES AND EMEMAS. TRY TO INCREASE YOUR WATER CONSUMPTION ALSO. EXERCISE ALSO INCREASES YOUR METABOLISM AND SEEMS TO HELP TOO. IF YOU LIKE TO EAT FRUIT, YOU CAN TRY THE DRIED PRUNES AS A SWEET SNACK DURING THE DAY TOO.

  • Get some MiraLax. They sell t hat OTC right now. You probably have a fissure, that's gotta hurt. I'd figure something out though and maybe go to the doc or you might end up with a hemorrhoid too. Ow.

  • maybe you should look at your diet and if you havent already got it in ,put some fibre into your diet , brown bread granary , allbran ,ect..... fruit ,loads of water helps ,but not so many bananas as they can still make you constipated ,if it doesnt improve I would visit your doctors ,may be you need a laxitive . good luck x
