Constipation is another very common condition that affects almost everyone at some or the other point in life. It is characterized by restricted bowel movements where sometimes people may experience hard stools and might face the situation to strain too hard on the toilet seat. When anyone face a condition of passing hard stools after an interval of 2-3 days or more, then this is considered as chronic constipation. This chronic constipation might lead to further other health issues like stomach cramps, bloating, heaviness, rectal pain, piles, fissure or fistula. Here we are going to focus on what are the factors that leads to constipation.

Dietary habits:
