About Constipation

Constipation is common and it affects people of all ages. If you have not had a poo at least 3 times during the last week, or the poo is often large and dry, hard or lumpy, or you are straining or in pain when you have a poo, it is likely that you have constipation.1

You can usually treat it with simple changes to your diet and lifestyle.1
