This consultation can help you learn more about what may be causing your constipation. Constipation can include too few bowel movements (fewer than 3 a week), straining or a feeling of blockage when you try to pass a stool, and hard stools. If you're not sure how often you're having bowel movements, try keeping a diary of your bowel symptoms.
