It is called constipation to difficulty defecating regularly considered a normal rate at least three times a week, although it depends on each person. Constipation is a condition that is caused by the lack of regular bowel movement and may be accompanied by pain while evacuated. This is a very common ailment that occurs due to inactivity, lack of fiber consumption, in situations of fatigue and nervousness. To avoid this difficulty, we recommend following a diet rich in fiber, drink plenty of water and exercise regularly. Although you can use laxatives sporadically, you should not abuse them as long-term can cause the opposite effect, and accustom the body to the same and worse.
