Constipation

What is Constipation?


Constipation is having difficulties in passing stool. It’s also the root cause for anal fissure, hemorrhoids and pelvic organ prolapse.

Causes


Constipation is caused by a variety of problems. For instance, not having enough fibre from foods and vegetables, not drinking adequate water, side effects of certain medications such as opioids and change in lifestyle and eating habits.

Evidences show that more than 50% of constipation are obstructive type secondary to sagging of pelvic floor. Straining effort to assist the defecation will descend the pelvic floor further and form vicious cycle to worsen the situation as time passed.

Common Treatment


Taking laxative medications is one of the common treatment for constipation but it could cause side effects including the most feared one: colonic inertia. Other than taking laxatives, one should go as conservative as possible, like making changes in lifestyle and eating habits and eating more fiber. Regular Kegel’s pelvic floor exercise should also be done because stronger pelvic floor support will be rewarded with better defecation process.

 

Solution We Provide

      Hi Jasbinder, we are happy to assist you further. We will advise you on how bowel aid benefits constipation patients but if you’re looking for information more than constipation, please do let us know. There are many factors that lead to constipation such as poor diet, lack of exercise, having a weak intestinal muscle contraction, etc. If you’ve watched the short video in our Constipation page, it shows that during defecation, the pelvic floor will sag and the sag caused a U-shape at the end of the rectum for every person sit to defecate, even for a healthy person, one will need to strain a little during defecation. For constipation patient, with that U-shape, poor diet and weak intestinal muscle contraction happens, the stool will become harder hence more straining will be needed, which might lead to hemorrhoids and anal fissure if that repeats. Here is where bowel aid comes in to help this problem. Bowel aid is a special toilet seat with a support on the posterior pelvic floor (supporting the area between coccyx and anus) that raise the U-shape rectum up, hence reduce the straining and facilitate defecation with straightening the passage of the rectum. Therefore, passing motion will be easier with bowel aid. You can replace your current toilet seat with our bowel aid to experience the benefit of bowel aid. For more information, please let us know. Thank you.
