It is common to have difficulty evacuating in some situations, like being away from home or eating foods that cause constipation.
However, if it happens too frequently or for long periods, it is necessary to seek medical help.
Do you know how many days without going to the bathroom is considered normal?
Some people are fine even 3 days without evacuating, as long as there are no symptoms of constipation.
However, for most people, evacuating less than 3 times a week can be considered a signal of constipation.
Did you know that constipation can intoxicate your body and cause many health issues?
It is healthy and fundamental to poop every day. When evacuation is infrequent, or if your feces are small and hard, it means you are constipated.
The difficulty processing foods, characterized by pain, bleeding, and discomfort, can inflame the intestine and cause obstructions, which represent a danger for health.
Dehydration, lack of fiber in diet, and lack of physical exercise are just some of the factors that can trigger constipation.
These are the main consequences of constipation in your body:
Lack of appetite
To prevent constipation, eat more vegetables, fruits, green leaves, bread, cereal, whole grains, and oatmeal. The fiber of these foods help with fecal volume and contribute to the intestinal transit.
Drink plenty of water because when fiber gets dry, it becomes harder to eliminate, which can constipate the intestine. Water helps humidify and soften the fecal matter.
Another way of preventing constipation is to go to the bathroom whenever you feel the need for evacuating.
The regular practice of physical activities, like walking, also improves intestinal function.
And if you still don’t evacuate for more than a week or if you go to the bathroom less than 3 times a week, talk to a physician or gastroenterologist to examine your case.
