not being able to go to the bathroom..

Question Posted Tuesday March 10 2009, 8:17 pm


i hardly ever go 'number two'. usually, only a two times a week. i decided to take laxatives to help me go, but they only 'kind of' work. like, i'll go to the bathroom, but i'll still feel like i'll have to go more afterwards.

does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?
what foods can i eat to help 'keep thing going'?
i hate hardly ever going to the bathroom because i'll start to feel sick and such.

thank you :)

I don't think laxatives are the answer to your problem. There are certain foods that can help you go to the bathroom more regularly because of their 'high-fiber' content.

Try following this program every day, for an entire week, and you will see much improvement going 'number two':

1) eat a bowl of cereal for breakfast and a fruit (or juice).

2) eat a salad with your lunch or dinner.

3) snack on apples.

4) drink at least 8 glasses of water during the day and evening.

If you add these high-fiber foods to your daily intake, you will definately 'keep things going'!

Good luck!

dont eat any gluten for three weeks and see if that helps. If it does, switch to a gluten free diet.
Gluten is a protein in grains such as wheat and oats. Grains without gluten include: corn rice millet and quinoa. You can basically continue eating normally without gluten. You can find really good gluten free grain products at whole foods, or another health food store.
most people have a sensitivity to gluten. Laxatives should be a last resort, as they really stress your bodies systems. Also, try drinking 12 8oz glasses of water a day, sometimes constipation is a product of dehydration.

I don't think taking laxatives is all that great an idea. My only experiences with them were indirectly helping a person who used them to get food out of their body with an eating disorder.

Not something I would ever want to put in me legitimate reason or not. My concern here is your diet. Are you eating lots of fruit and vegetables. Apples, Bananas, Prunes will help. How about fiber? Eating a bowl of All Bran or Raisin Bran daily will help you eliminate.

If you aren't drinking lots of water, juices start doing so as it really helps. If you are always stressed, changed your diet, exercise routines or more importantly changed or dropped prescription medicine that plays substantially.

There are also illnesses such as irritable bowel syndrome and diabetes that can play an essential role into what's going on. That is of course if this is a frequent thing.

My advice drink lots of water, toss the laxitives, put fiber in your diet and drink lots of juices and the problem should clear up.
