Visiting the bathroom is part of the daily human experience.
But occasionally, constipation strikes,
a condition that causes a backup in your digestive system.
The food you eat can take several days to exit your body.
And for many, constipation can become chronic,
meaning regularly passing lumpy hard stools accompanied by straining.
What's behind this unsettling phenomenon?
Constipation arises in the colon, also known as the large intestine.
This muscular organ is split into four sections:
the ascending,
transverse,
descending,
and sigmoid colon,
which connects with the rectum and anus.
The small intestine delivers stool
consisting of ingested food, bile, and digestive juices
to the large intestine.
As this stool moves through the colon,
the organ siphons off most of the water it contains,
transforming it from liquid to solid.
The longer this transmission takes,
the more reabsorption occurs, resulting in increasingly solid stool.
Once it reaches the sigmoid colon,
a final bout of reabsorption occurs before it enters the rectum,
distending its walls and telling the internal anal sphincter to relax.
This is the point where you can usually decide whether to physically expel
or retain the stool.
That's regulated by the pelvic floor muscles,
particularly the puborectalis
and external anal sphincter.
The puborectalis forms a sling-like formation around the rectum
called the anorectal angle.
And when you voluntarily relax your external anal sphincter,
the stool is finally expelled.
When you're constipated, however,
a desire to visit the bathroom isn't enough to coax your body into action.
Usually there's two factors behind this problem:
the stool's slow movement through the colon
and/or pelvic floor dysfunction.
In the first, stool moves excessively slowly through the intestines,
causing over-absorption of liquid, which makes the stool dry and hard.
With pelvic floor dysfunction,
stool becomes difficult to eliminate from the rectum
because of tightened pelvic floor muscles, or due to a pelvic organ prolapse,
usually through childbirth or aging.
Both of these problems make the anorectal angle more acute
and it becomes difficult to expel waste.
To identify constipation precisely,
researchers have developed metrics, such as the Bristol Stool Chart.
Most people who look at that chart
will be able to tell they've experienced constipation before.
When you're on the toilet, you should ideally be in a squatting position.
With your buttocks firmly on the toilet seat,
you can elevate your feet on a stool
and lean forwards with a straight back,
which straightens the anorectal angle and eases the passage of waste.
Going a day without a bowel movement isn't necessarily cause for alarm.
But if you are experiencing chronic constipation,
simple dietary and lifestyle changes,
like fibrous vegetables,
regular exercise,
abdominal massage,
and 6 to 8 cups of water per day
may help restore your daily trip to the toilet.
