Why do women suffer from constipation more than men?
For every one man suffering from constipation there are three women suffering and there are reasons for that.
Women have a different life cycle than men. To start with, they deal with PMS, emotional stress, hormonal imbalances, menopause, and are faced with the circumstances resulting from post-birth, post-surgery and post-menopause.
Constipation in general should be seen as a symptom and not a disease. But the most dominant factors of female constipation are hormonal changes and giving birth.
Women also on average consume less fiber in their diets and undergo more changes in their dietary routines, often in the name of weight loss.
Since women have a myriad of responsibilities, they generally do not allow themselves an ample amount of time to sit in the bathroom, therefore exerting themselves more due to less time taken for themselves. This extra effort damages the strength of the pelvic floor muscles.
On that same note of increasing efficiency of bowel movements, women frequently ingest laxatives to speed up the process of going to the bathroom. It is usually unknown that taking large quantities of laxatives, or using them for an extended period of time, can lead to dysfunction in the intestines, addiction to the product, and abdominal pain.
It is also important to note that there are differences in the physiological makeup of men and women. For instance, the female colon is 10 centimeters longer than that of a man. It also is narrower, resulting in a slower transit time for the digestion of food. This frequently results in more difficult bowel movements.
What are women to do if they are constipated?
Constipation is defined as having fewer than 3 bowel movements a week, difficulty emptying bowels, and difficult and painful passage of stool leading to bloating of the abdomen. There are dangers to being constipated. Not only is a constipated woman suffering with uncomfortable pain but it can lead to hemorrhoids, cracks in and around the anus, loosening of the pelvic floor, and loss of control of anal muscles.
One would think that with so many women suffering from constipation and laxative abuse there would be a crowded market of solutions for female constipation. But there is only one product to be found that is designed to address female constipation’s symptoms as well as its causes.
