Men’s Bowel Health

Men’s Bowel Health

Ask yourself these 3 questions:

1. Do you strain to empty your bowel & feel like you haven’t completely emptied?
2. Do you have bowel movements less than three times a week?
3. Do you have to rush to the toilet or experience soiling of your underwear?

If you answered yes to any of these it might mean you are experiencing constipation and loss of bowel control, which can be highly distressing problems that are not talked about. These problems can have a huge impact on your life. Constipation and difficulty emptying your bowel can leave you feeling bloated, uncomfortable and sluggish. You might find yourself avoiding intimacy and social situations and too worried to leave the house in the morning if you haven’t had a bowel action.
