Can Only Defecate If You Have A Stomachache. Fair?
Hello, r nI want to ask .. Why is it that I can only defecate if I have a stomachache .. Whereas if my stomach doesn’t feel sick yet, I want to defecate it will hurt. Is that natural? And my stomach ache only happened every few days .. So I only defecated every few days.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Defecation is one way the body gets rid of metabolic waste. Normally, healthy adults will have no more than 3 bowel movements a day, but also no less than 2 times a week.
Prior to a bowel movement, the increased motility of the intestines to push in the stool can cause a little discomfort. Ordinary people often refer to this as a "heartburn" sensation. This condition is certainly not always dangerous, as long as the intensity is not too great, the frequency of bowel movements is still normal, and the consistency of the stool that comes out is still reasonable (soft to solid).
What you need to worry about is if the frequency of your bowel movements is very rare (less than 2 times a week) or appears accompanied by very severe abdominal pain, hard stools like goat droppings, hard stomach, bloating, nausea, vomiting, and difficulty passing wind. Conditions like this you should check directly with a doctor or specialist in internal medicine, because it could indicate a disease, such as inflammation of the intestine, irritable bowel syndrome, benign or malignant tumors in the digestive tract (for example polyps, cancer), intolerance, malabsorption, or the presence of masses obstructing faecal passage (eg due to tumors in other organs). With a thorough physical examination, or with the help of X-rays, ultrasound, stool examination, blood tests, and endoscopy, doctors are generally able to determine the best treatment for your complaint.
What you should do right now is:
Help facilitate defecation, namely by increasing the consumption of water, vegetables, and fruits Consumption of other foods with balanced nutrition Minimizing consumption of fatty, spicy, or unhygienic foods Not getting used to holding back the urge to defecate Active moving and exercise 3 to 4 times a week Compress the sore stomach with warm water Maintain your ideal body weight Do not consume excessive caffeine Stay away from alcohol Hope it helps, yes ..
