Abstract

Constipation can be defined as a reduced frequency of defecation that results in the production of hard stools that are difficult to pass. In essence, it is a change in bowel habits (in a particular individual) from what is considered to be the norm. This is because what is "normal" is different for different people. It might be usual for a patient to have three bowel movements per day, whereas someone else might normally have only three bowel movements per week.
