Constipation is a common condition which causes irregular passing of stools (poo) or being unable to empty your bowel completely. It can also cause stools to become hard, lumpy, larger or smaller than usual.
There are a variety of factors that can cause constipation, so it can be difficult to identify the exact cause, but common reasons include, not eating enough fibre, ignoring the urge to pass stools and not drinking enough fluids. For most people, constipation is a short-term inconvenience, but for some people it can be a long-term condition that causes discomfort.
Remember, your final treatment will be decided by our prescribers based on your answers provided within your consultation. You will be asked to indicate a preferred treatment option from a selected list after completion of your consult.

What Constipation treatment can do
If traditional constipation treatments haven’t worked, there is a variety of prescription treatments available that can help to ease symptoms and make stools easier to pass.
For example, a stronger laxative than those available over the counter can help to get things moving more effectively when constipation is very troubling.
If your constipation is particularly bad, it can cause a condition called faecal impaction, which may require an enema or a suppository to help clear your blockage.
