Science Explains What Happens To Your Body When You Don’t Poop Every Day !

Ever heard about constipation?
Well, that’s actually the “fancy” medicine word for not pooping
regularly, and is described as “ inability to pass hard stools whenever
feeling the need to finish that task”.

For many people is a painful process, just because the muscles feel the need, though the task is not being fulfilled.


Let’s mention some of the main causes of constipation:

Bad diet – absence of fiber is the most common cause for constipation

water intake –  water directly results the type of your stool, and with
that, the ability to poop. Not enough water means your stool is too
hard and you might feel pine if you need to go to the bathroom

– if this is the case, some metabolitical processes of your body are
directly influenced by something else that’s going on. If you eat
frequently, eat a lot of fiber, such as vegetables and fruits, exercise
or walk regularly and still are unable to go to the bathroom, you should
pay your doctor a visit.

Here are some of the risks that might happen to your body if you don’t poop regularly.

Lose your appetite

you don’t poop regularly, you might feel the kind of loss for appetite,
such as when you’re ill. This can be explained through the nervous
system. Because the gut is a stretchy muscle, whenever you have a meal
it stretches and it signals the brain that is full, so you don’t feel
hungry anymore.

Then the brain sends the signal for the
bowel movement, which makes the intestines send the food further down
the gut. You can’t poop with an empty stomach, right? When you’re
constipated, this “feedback process” is interrupted and not regular.
Even if you’ve had your last meal hours before, you still feel full!


headaches are connected with stress. Well, because regular pooping is a
basic function of our metabolism and body, the disrupted function
subconsciously stresses out the whole body, making it more stressed,
worried and cramping. Your whole body feels tensed, as well as your

Also, if you are among the
people who have hard stool, this could be as well a result of
dehydration. Another cause that could lead to headaches is the increased
level of toxins that didn’t got out, because you’re constipated. Even
if you feel full, just drink more water to prevent your headaches.

Fecal incontinence

term actually means that you’re no longer in control of your bowel
movements and it’s the most common effect of being constipated. What
actually happens is a physical blockage that makes the colon muscles to

This condition can be threated with taking
some laxatives, or you can also try doing some exercises that could
strengthen your pelvic muscles, as well as your weakened bowel muscle


you fail to “pop a squat”, the stool sticks somewhere I the intestines,
resulting to a physical blockage. The regular contractions sent by the
brain to the large intestines to squeeze with some amount of force to
get the stool out doesn’t actually work, because the stool is hardened
and stuck. Normally, this is a painful process and some people even pay a
visit to the hospital, for treatment, such as enema.

an*l fissures

medical term actually refers to the teared up an*l tissue that is being
forced to push out the stool. It can lead to bleeding, itching and can
even worsen the whole constipation. The fissures are regularly very
tiny, but can expand, due to the fact they are positioned on the an*s,
which is a stretchy muscle.

This condition is more
common among the children, who, afraid of the pain, push and hold the
stool not to be released. If the condition worsens and the fissures get
quite bigger, it might even require surgery to heal.

Rectal prolapse

re*tum is the ending of the an*s. It is the inside part that due to
force stretching can partly come out, or even sometimes, the whole
re*tum can come out. Normally, as the other symptoms, it is painful and
results in bleeding, which is another problems – you can’t sometimes
differ it from hemorrhoids.

Bladder control

organism is a one whole, so when one organ or process is disrupted, it
affects the surrounding organs. Such as the bladder in this case, which
is very near to the colon. When the colon is full it puts extra pressure
on the bladder and you could feel more frequent need to urinate than


The most
connected word with rectal problems and constipation is definitely
hemorrhoids. What happens is the following: the veins that line the
re*tum are more pressured than usual during constipation, thus they
stretch beyond their capacity and change their usual shape. Sometimes
they can even pop out from the an*s.

Hemorrhoids can be
internal and external and when you squeeze further more, they can pop
and cause bleeding and pain. The worse that could happen is a big hard
bump, which can even lead to surgery.

Bad breath

study made in Denmark concluded that constipation can lead to
occurrence of bad breath. The connection between the two is not very
clear, but the theory is that during constipation, you retain toxins,
which can occur in your breath, making it smelly, such as the smell from
