...seriously.

A little over a year ago I went through a traumatic move in my life blah blah long story and a almost exactly a year ago I began to defecate less often.

I used to go like 3 times a day and it was quick and painless and easy, but for about a year it has been really hard. Sometimes worse that others. It feels like my anus is really small because I strain A LOT and when I look in the toilet it's like a piece of poo the size of a marble. I don't get it.

Does anyone know why it feels like my butt has been superglued for one year?

To I used to poo often. I think we have the same problem. Whether soft or hard I can't seem to push anything out. I've come to the conclusion that it's body stress that literally shutting up the anal canal.

Dear Used to Poo Often:
I would suggest seeing your doctor for a complete exam first. She/he may run tests such as a rectal exam, colon xray or colonoscopy to make sure your constipation is not caused by some abnormality. Examine your diet: Are you drinking enough water and eating enough fiber? Do you eat alot of cheese, sugar and processed foods? These can cause constipation. You may just have IBS since you mentioned a "traumatic move". If that's all it is, then you might want to try taking cascara segrada at bedtime and see if that gets things moving. Of course the "dreaded enema" is what I recommend of stubborn constipation. Start with a nice 1/2 liter of cool filtered water to stimulate contractions in the bowel and clean out all that toxic waste you must be building. You'll be surprised how much better you'll feel! First check with your doctor though. If your bowel is otherwise healthy, you can take an enema safely. I hope you feel better soon.

Hey - I can totally relate to the pain of constipation and being irregular. I had constipation for years and tried EVERYTHING.

I finally found something that works that is all natural and that doesn't give me that out of control feeling (you know...where you can't leave your home because you need to have IMMEDIATE access to a restroom).

This worked for me and it might help you too.

i'm 22 and i constipated very badly for 6 months. it was torture. nothing worked - i ate an equivalent of a small forest everyday and metamucil, lansoyl, a papaya a day, you name it i did it. My poo was like yours - little marbles every single day, and it bled. After I took PRIOBIOTIC acidophilis vitamins 3 x a day my digestion improved considerably (especially if you had to go through something traumatic, or taken a lot of antibiotics, which kill your digestive enzymes). these you can buy at the drugstore and its natural vitamins. take one upon waking up, before lunch, and before dinner. ALSO flax seed helps a lot, make sure its cold when you drink it (in cold-room temperature apple juice, mix it in). Take about two tablespoons of flax seed per day (made sure its already ground up, like powder). The turning point came after my colonscopy, when I had to starve for 30 hours. After my stomache was cleared of all the crap in there, and I took flax seed and acidophilis, everyday my life is a joy. I recommend fasting/starving for a day or so to clear your system naturally (I did take pico salax - a strong laxative for my colonscopy, however, and my stomache was cleared). just drink chicken soup the whole day and lots of water during that time. After that day, load up with the flax seed and acidophilis vitamins. This is the only thing that has worked for me. GOOD LUCK. I know how much it hurts, my heart goes out to you.

Besides seeing the doctor, look into a safe and gentle, yet effective method of clearing this problem up with homeopathy. Check it out on the internet, see a homeopath or try one of the medicines recommended by ABC Homeopathy.

I have the same problem, you can feel your bowels hanging down there (sorry for the way i said that) but you can push and push and just a little comes out. the way it feels like it's gigantic. they say sometimes menopause in women can do that, i don't know. But anyway, how i get mine to moving really good, i drink prune juice, it works on me like a laxative.

yes, prune juice is supposed to work well and also dates too.
Often this kind of thing is caused by allergies and people do not seem to think of that.

Maybe go get an allergy test done, cut out all dairy for a week and see if things improve and then if no improvement, try cutting out wheat for a week. These are the two things that a lot of people are commonly sensitive towards.

Your food is supposed to move through your gut fairly quickly and some authorities say that the residue from what you eat should have passed out the other end in 24hours. I should not think many people manage that though.

I had surgery for a cystocele, rectocele, vaginal wall repair and urethra reconstruction (because the doctor did stich through my urethra 15 years ago) last May, and after I could not have a bowel movement. After two ER visits, the all clear from a CT taken, an all clear from a proctologist, it continued to get worse all year. Finally, a GI doctor did a colonoscopy on January 31st for me. The surgeon in May of 2012 sutured straight through my rectum and the colon was now growing over it and in essence closing itself. I go today to find out how they are going to repair this, hopefully, without having to redo everything else. If your body does not feel right...keep telling someone until they listen. I asked them the day I woke up in recovery what the excruciating pain in my posterior was and they had every excuse under the sun every time I went back in tears asking again, and telling them that I felt like something was sewn shut or is now blocking that area, because I know what constipation feels like and it was nothing like that. Doctors....grrrr!

BTW...I told them for two years straight after my first surgery that they sewed my urethra shut that it felt like something was blocking that area 15 years ago. The urologist finally sent me back to my OBGYN who diagnosed me with depression, because they could not find anything wrong. However, they never checked what I told them felt like the problem until this past May when my bladder damage became so bad from the bladder releasing urine down the urethra, reaching the stitch and being shot straight back up against the bladder walls. I have extreme scarring :(

If your doctor will not listen...go to another. The time limit is 5-7 years after surgery for a malpractice suit, so I waited to long for the first one regardless of the amount of damage that has been done to my body by believing the doctors and living with the pain. This time I am following up...now.

It just started today, my skin around my butt hole has been really sore, I checked it out in the mirror and it just seems to be a little red. I didn't come across any bumps and I don't think I have been bleeding from my anus (although I am on my period at the moment) also my butt hole looks smaller, like a slit and so I put some cream round the area (e45 dry skin cream) I'm now lying on my side in bed and I can feel it, it feels like it's burning or something. I'm 12 year old female and don't want to tell my parents or a doctor because I'm too shy and embarrassed, even if you tell me to, I won't. Also it kind of hurts when I fart, I have to force it out swell and when I was putting the cream on I noticed it was kind of gooey down there and it was smelly. Please help it's like half 2 in the morning and I have school tomorrow, I don't want to sit on it for hours all day! Also I have PE :(( will it go away soon? I'm really scared...
