Constipation is a condition in the colon where bowel movements are not regular and/or hard or painful to pass. In many situations, a poor diet and/or a diminished intake of liquids are to blame for the situation. In rare instances, a psychological issue is the cause.
In most cases, constipation is not a danger, however, cases that don’t respond to standard treatment (laxatives, enemas, diets high in fiber, plenty of water) can lead to serious complications if left untreated. Constipation is extremely common in both adults and children.
