HOME REMEDIES FOR HARD STOOL

Abdominal massage. Sometimes a stomach massage can help stimulate the bowels if they’re not moving enough to help stool digest more quickly. Rubbing the stomach in a circular motion can help. •Drink more water. Increasing water in the digestive tract can make stool softer and easier to pass. A good sign that you’re drinking enough water is if your urine is pale yellow in color. •Eat more fiber. Fiber can add bulk to the stool, which can stimulate the bowels and help move stool through the digestive tract. However, adding too much fiber at once can have the opposite effect and cause bloating and abdominal discomfort. Examples of excellent fiber sources include wholewheat bread, black beans, berries or apples with the skins on, carrots, green peas, broccoli, almonds, and peanuts. •Avoid empty-calorie, low-fiber foods. Many low-fiber foods don’t add a lot of nutritional value to your diet. Avoid fast food, processed foods, and chips. •Exercise. Physical activity can have a bowel-stimulating effect on the body. Hard poop medical treatment Examples of medications a doctor may prescribe or recommend include: •Bulk-forming agents. Examples include Citrucel or FiberCon. These medications help to add bulk to stool, making it easier to pass. •Osmotic agents. Examples include MiraLAX. These medications attract water to the stool, making it easier to pass. •Stool softeners.Examples include docusate sodium (Colace). This helps to soften hard stool so it isn’t so hard to pass. Ideally, these methods are a short-term solution. If your hard stool causes significant medical problems, such as an intestinal blockage or rectal prolapse, you may require surgery. That is usually a last attempt to correct an underlying problem. The most serious symptoms of hard stool are rectal bleeding or blood in your stool. These can require emergency medical attention if a person continues bleeding. Other hard stool symptoms include: •abdominal pain •difficulty passing gas •pain passing stools •straining when passing stools Many of these symptoms can make you afraid to pass any other stools. This fear can worsen constipation. If your stool is especially hard to pass, it’s not uncommon to see some streaking of blood present in the stool. Hard stool can create irritation and microtears in the intestinal lining that cause bleeding. Also, you can experience bleeding from somewhere in the gastrointestinal tract that may mean you see blood in your stool. If the blood is more than streaking or continues beyond a day, see a doctor to make sure the blood-streaked stool isn’t a sign of an underlying medical condition.
