Sometimes your: colon and intestine secrete some mucous. If this is too much this is not a desired condition. But mucousy stools are usually associated more with diarrhea then constipation.

Possibly: Try eating unpasteurized yogurt three times a day or taking a probiotic and adding some otc fiber additive to take daily. This will bulk up the stool, and change the nature of bacteria in gut which will alter the odor. If this does not work see a GI doctor. If the constipation is of recent onset, get checked for thyroid function. ...Read more

Can an intestinal obstruction cause Diarreah?? I've been having terrible constipation even with Miralax (polyethylene glycol) and now Diarreah but it's pure water??
Post obstructive di?: The obstruction causes constipation, but once the treatments work (& the obstruction resolves) often patients experience post-obstructive diarrhea. The body adjusts to relief by producing excess fluid & moving fluid through faster for a period of time before it adjusts to the new normal. If your symptoms persist, however, see a doctor. It may be something different or serious. ...Read more

How often do you go.: The true 'definition' of constipation is once week. Are your stools 'normal' or hard. Some people do not have to 'go' every day. I would like my patients to have a bm at least every 4 days. You also need to really record daily how much fiber and water you consume in a day. Then discuss that with your physician. Adults should strive for at least 30 gram of fiber daily and 64 ounces of water. ...Read more

Constipation: While it is great to change everything, you body may take some time to adjust. For example if you are drinking less coffee, your intestines are missing the stimulant.

If it continues see your physician, if you develop intense pain go to the emergency department ...Read more

I am constipated rather frequently even if i eat plenty of fiber and always drink water. I take senna when i need to, but what could be the cause?
A sluggish colon: A common problem is a very sluggish (moving material through) and efficient (removing water from the stool) colon. A problem when you have bloating and discomfort as a result - but not a problem with absorption of "toxins". You need to help your colon to be more active. Senna is bad - you develop a tolerance and become addicted to it. Stool softeners, mom, glycolax are ok, even daily. ...Read more
