Once constipation (no bowel movement) has gone on for some time, the result can be what is known as an impacted bowel (sometimes called fecal impaction). Essentially, this means that a large lump of dry, hard stool is stuck inside your rectum. In short, an impacted bowel means pollution is building up inside your body.
Besides, why is my poop coming out like pebbles?
Pebble like, hard poop only occurs when you are very constipated. The stool has sat in the large intestine and colon for an extended period. During this extended stay in the colon, water and nutrients are removed from the stool, causing it to harden and break apart into pebbles.
What does it mean when your poop is skinny?
