Under normal circumstances, the human body maintains regular defecation 1-2 times a day, which should be regarded as a normal physiological defecation rhythm; of course, there are also cases of 3-4 defecation a day. If there is no abnormality in abdominal pain and stool characteristics, it should be regarded as a normal phenomenon. . If you can maintain a regular bowel movement every day, the character is like a banana, it is an ideal bowel rhythm. The production of physiological bowel rhythm is closely related to dietary structure, living habits, place of residence, exercise amount, and emotional changes. A full understanding of the physiological bowel rhythm will help increase the awareness of assisting in handling constipation, and avoid the abuse or excessive use of laxative drugs that may cause drug dependence. Hemorrhoid-induced constipation, as the name suggests, means that hemorrhoids are the main cause of constipation.
In fact, the production of feces takes a time process. Generally, it takes 48-72 hours for the feces to reach the rectum after eating to produce feces. Normally, the rectum should always remain empty. When the stool accumulates to about 300 grams, it will put pressure on the intestinal wall and trigger the urge to defecate. The urge to defecate is transmitted to the cerebral cortex through the lumbosacral nerve pathway to produce defecation. When conditions permit, the defecation center of the cerebral cortex is excited, promotes the contraction of the sigmoid colon and rectum, relaxes the anal sphincter, cooperates with the contraction of the abdominal muscles, increases the pressure in the abdominal cavity, and excretes feces. If conditions do not permit, contract the external anal sphincter to prevent fecal discharge. Long-term ignorance of stools may cause the rectum to become insensitive to fecal pressure stimulation. In addition, the feces stay in the intestine for too long, and the water will become dry and hard due to excessive absorption of water, which will cause difficulty in defecation.
The standing reflex produced when waking up, and the gastro-colon reflex produced after breakfast can promote colonic peristalsis and produce defecation reflex. Therefore, regular bowel movements in the morning or after breakfast are more in line with physiological requirements. Ignoring the constipation is the main cause of constipation in teenagers and women.
At present, more and more attention is paid to the treatment of constipation, which stems from the possible harm caused by constipation. People also realize the correlation between hemorrhoids and constipation, and the concept of hemorrhoidal constipation was born. Hemorrhoid-derived constipation is actually a false concept. Hemorrhoids itself cannot cause constipation, but constipation can lead to aggravation of hemorrhoids. When severe hemorrhoids may cause constipation due to symptoms such as blood in the stool and prolapse, or accompanied by aggravation of constipation symptoms .
Modern medicine believes that there is a "rubber cushion" anal cushion tissue at the end of the human rectum, and hemorrhoids are caused by pathological anal cushion hyperplasia and downward movement. Pathological anal cushion under high pressure may cause defecation obstruction and anorectal pressure. Change, the contraction of the sphincter muscle is out of coordination, so the simple treatment of hemorrhoids at this time cannot completely solve the constipation, but can only relieve the symptoms of constipation. At the same time, attention should be paid to the treatment of hemorrhoids and the functional exercise of the pelvic floor muscles to achieve effective treatment.
The treatment of constipation cannot be accomplished overnight. To understand the normal physiological bowel rhythm, pay attention to the cultivation of the bowel movement reflex, and achieve satisfactory results through dietary conditioning, exercise, oral beneficial bacteria, rational medication, and treatment of hemorrhoids.
