It is and you can use Senokot. You can eat fruit, bran and grains to help prevent it.

Thank you for all your assistance. It really is a terrible feeling. Been suffering badly for the last week. I think I will try the glycerine suppositories.

if you are anything like me... you can eat all & take all you like BUT NOTHING works... i even tried to drink lots of water... to no avail. My pharmicist suggested Glycerine suppositories... it worked wonders & in uder 10minutes.

Its normal...what helps for me is Kellogs high fibre bran, and drinking lots of water, prune juice or dry fruit helps as well.. you can take Senokot as well but its best to go natural.. Nitriday bran yogurt helps for me as well...but most important is to drink lots of water
