What are the symptoms of constipation and how is it treated ?

Hi, I’m 28 Female.... I been having these backaches (mid back, towards the sides) the pain comes and goes. Some days are fine and others just an irritating ache. Also, this past week I’ve been constipated, only being able to poop a very small amount. Then today, I had a regular movement. Well, I went a few times… My last poop was small but felt like diarrhea , when I wiped my bum I noticed that it was blood . I looked in the toilet and noticed that there was a glob of blood (not poop). It wasn’t like a deep red blood, like if u get a cut or something, It was like a bright red. My stomach still aches and I feel a bit nauseous. Not to mention my stomach is constantly growling . And aches in my back are back. Please Help. Any ideas what may be the cause.

I had the first day of my last period on the 2nd of January. Had Unprotected Sex on the 26th of January, took levonelle on the 27th. It has now been seven days since taking the EC and I have had no bleeding but I am experiencing signs of early pregnancy symptoms. However, I took Levonelle within the first 24 hours and was not ovulating during the unprotected intercourse. Why am I experiencing such nauseating symptoms, constipation, dizziness and fatigue and what is the longest one should wait for their next period? I have been pregnant before and feel pregnant again but surely the chances are minimal? Surely I can t be experiencing such strong signs of pregnancy a week after intercourse?

I recently had surgery for a total hysterectomy. I am 65 years old and the surgery was done in concert with a bladder lift. When I spoke with the doctor after the surgery, I was told that only 1 tube and 1 ovary were removed because the others were wrapped around my colon . I had bowel problems before the surgery and the symptoms (constipation) have increased since. The surgery was on March 10 of this year. Should I be looking for a gastroenterologist?

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
