    hello,sorry about the issue u are having with respect to bowel movement.this is a condition quite easy to prevent if u follow the advice that will be given to u.Note that feacal impaction can cause intestinal obstruction,a potentially dangerous condition.First of all,how much water do u drink per day?u must take at least 4litres of water per day and even more considering the current dry weather. Add more vegetable to your meals,eat swallows with more vegetables including okro.Every morning,drink a cup of water and see if u are pressed to go to toilet,do so immediately if u are.what work do u do?constipation is common in people who don't have time to visit toilet when nature calls.they tend to postpone defeacating more often wc causes more absorption of fluid from the feaces thus making it hard.follow the advice,u will be fine.
