u/FLAMINGCUMBOX · 1 pointr/shittingadvice

This is some advice I gave to someone else on here a few days ago.

I hope it works for you.

Lube with lidocaine

Enema bottle

Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap

Your butthole is just as much a part of your body as your mouth.

You would put a couple of fingers in your mouth to remove something if you couldn't spit it out?

Well you can do the same thing with your butt!

However, we won't get to that point yet.

First, I would recommend sticking with Metamucil (maybe upping the dose). Drinking plenty of water. I drink at least 2 liters a day.

Now on to the other stuff.

That enema bottle will work wonders for you. Fill it by squeezing the bulb tight and sucking as much lukewarm water into it as you can.
Put a little bit of lube on your butthole, and then a little lube on the stem of the enema.

Take a position like you're gonna pray to allah. Head down, ass up. Very slowly find your little butthole opening and gently slide the stem in there.

Now, reeeeallly slowly start squirting the water into your butt. Only squeeze, do not let the bulb pull water back into the bulb. You'll be cleaning the bulb afterwards, but the focus here is getting that water up your shitpipe. When the water is in there, slowly slide out the enema stem and set it aside.

You might want to distract yourself by redditing, or reading the news. Sometimes people can barely hold the water in for less then a minute, sometimes people can hold it in for a couple of minutes. I'm pretty good at holding it in for 3-4 minutes. You'll get better if you stick with it.

You may feel a little cramping. This is normal. Try to keep it in there.

When you're ready to let loose, hop onto the toilet and let it rip. You may let out gas along with shitlogs and it may be more then you expected. Hang in there. More may come out.

Give a few wipes and then lean into the tub and squirt some dr. Bronner's peppermint soap onto your hand. Wash your ass checks and asshole really well. Take the top part of your finger to the first little knuckle and gently put it in your butt. Wiggle it a little. It'll clean your butthole really well. Towel dry off. MINTY CLEAN ASS!

At this point you may feel the need to shit again. Go for it. Probably only a little bit will come out this time, but it could be more!

Then wash up again.

This next part is another thing you can do, and do it before the enema if you want. Both of these in combo will really help you to feel cleaned out.

You may now be wondering about the lube.

Well, this is a little more advanced, but it might really help you if you're suffering. This is actually a thing that is done in hospitals for severely constipated patients!

The lidocaine in that lube is meant to help numb your ass a bit for anal sex, but there really isn't enough lidocaine for that. The good thing about that lube is that it's thick, and it comes with an applicator to shoot some lube up your shit nozzle.

Here's the part you may not be able to do, but I promise you that I've done it and it works!

Lean your ass into the tub.

Lube up a finger and your asshole. Slowly put your finger in your butt. Wait a little bit. Tighten your butt sphincter, then loosen it (as if you were going to fart or poop). See how the discomfort is less when you relax that sphincter? Well that's how you're going to add lots of lube to your pointer and middle finger and gently, and slowly slide them up your butt. See if you can feel poop. It may just be stuck. With your fingers still in your butt, push down (like you're gonna poop) and see if the poop comes down a little bit. If you can get your fingers to the side of it, you can help ease it down until you can push it right out of your butthole! Toss it in the toilet.
Keep going like this while consistently pushing down and you feel more and more descending. This is called "digital disimpaction".
At this point, your asshole is slightly stretched, your rectum and anus is well lubed, and you can take plenty of time sitting on the toilet letting the rest of it slide out. Your bowel should be adequately stimulated to help move stool down the colon.

When you're done reuse the enema a few times to clean any lube and left over shit and then wash up. Minty asshole!

Don't let your poop back up like that! Also, if you feel like you're going to take a big ass splitting shit, get some lube and gently stretch your butthole out again before you poop.

Best wishes!

I have the same issues as OP, and I drink that much water a day because im always thirsty, but I pee every hour so it doesnt seem to help my other issues. Going to an endocrinologist and checking in with my nephrologist soon, but in the meantime it's annoying. I keep a sweet awesome water bottle always full, because having a nice one with a counter in the lid keeps me motivated to drink more. I take it everywhere with me, and that one has a lock so it never leaks in my purse.

Anyway, that's a nice suggestion for the OP, best of luck hah

u/iheartmyname · 6 pointsr/shittingadvice

I recently made two purchases which have rocked my shitting world. The first is the Squatty Potty - crappy name, good idea. It changes your pooping posture to one more like squatting, which means less pushing, less hemorrhoids and less wiping. After hearing about this, I tried for a while just putting my feet on the trash can and other things, but it's way easier and more comfortable to just get the stool (in my opinion). EDIT: Read closer and see that you're already squatting, but I still recommend the stool if you don't have one.

Second, I got a bidet attachment for my toilet. There are MANY to choose from, but I got the lowest priced one on Amazon and have been very pleased. This is a simple device that just provides a stream of cool water to your bum to spray off the poo. Then you use a bit of toilet paper or cloth (your bum is clean, so no poo stains to wash off) to just dry off.

Between the two, I barely use toilet paper anymore, and I also used to need to use quite a lot to clean up. The downside to these purchases is that I'm now completely spoiled at home and miss them deeply when I travel.

Run the water in the sink while you poop - or even better, poop before you shower if you can, and just run the shower while pooping and then hop in when you're done. I also love Poo-Pourri for eradicating the olfactory evidence. They have manly scents as well. This is how it works.

When I lived in a similar situation, I reworked my shitting/showering schedule so that I pooped before the shower and ran the shower while I did so. That and the poo-pourri soothed my shit-shyness and upheld the illusion that my poop smells like cedar and lemons. XD

u/RalphMullin · 5 pointsr/shittingadvice

I recently got this, it's very easy to install.

I now use 1 roll of toilet paper about every 1-2 months.

u/PhysiciSteve · 1 pointr/shittingadvice

While I'm not a doctor, may I suggest you try a bidet attachment for your toilet? I was having similar issues, and this inexpensive bidet really changed my life, and my butthole.

u/calcuttacodeinecoma · 1 pointr/shittingadvice

As someone who use to have this problem, I advise Psyllium (Metamucil). It helped me in a big big way. I also got a bidet attachment for home.

u/UsuallyJustLurking · 2 pointsr/shittingadvice

I'm anemic (male) and after my last physical and blood work my doctor recommended that I start taking Feosol 325mg once per day. If I take them on an empty stomach I'll get some mild craps, but if I take them with food I'm fine. They actually have a small dose of laxative in the pill, so I haven't had any constipation. If anything I'm going slightly more often since I started taking them.

u/sejinshi · 1 pointr/shittingadvice

I was using those Chinese diet teas for the past 10 years on a daily basis. You can find them in some grocery stores or Asian food stores. Usually they're called Ballerina Diet teas. They contain something called Senna.

I haven't had an side effects from them as far as I'm aware of. I probably shouldn't have been using them for so long, but I hate not being regular and I had a hard time doing it through diet alone. Now I am getting off them just in case because I want to get pregnant soon and I don't know if it's a good idea to drink the tea during pregnancy. I have started taking magnesium citrate supplements to help and my diet is mostly Paleo. Started making veggie and fruit smoothies too. I haven't been going as regularly as I want to, but it's not too bad. I was the most regular when I drank the tea.

u/DennisQuaaludes · 2 pointsr/shittingadvice

You’re hitting it from above. You may want to try hitting it from the other end.

You can get fleets enemas on Amazon.

You might also want to try a bag and bucket enema.

You could also try adding chia seeds to smoothies.

u/ReallyJeff · 2 pointsr/shittingadvice

Four 500 mg caps is only 2 grams! Get some bulk psyllium ( and take at least a 9 gram Tablespoon once a day.

u/dumplefilledbin · 1 pointr/shittingadvice

I've got the same problem as you OP and, though no doctor has referred me to a specialist yet because they never fucking listen, I have some advice:

  1. Stretch. Check out the pelvic floor stretches in this book and do them two or three times a day, every day.

  2. Hot porridge/oatmeal for breakfast every morning with a hot cup of coffee/English Breakfast tea – the temperature of both foods, plus the fibre and caffeine stimulant usually create enough of a storm for me to have a big enough shit to be productive (completely evacuating is basically a non-starter for me now).

  3. If you can, play browser games while you poo. I'm not joking, find a little surface you can put your laptop/iPad on slightly to the right/left of your position on the toilet, easily reachable, and play away. I find Transformice helps me the best, but you just need something that requires minimum mental effort but that is stimulating enough to distract you from your bowels.

  4. Learn where the apex is. Pushing to shit with dyssynergic defecation only helps if you time it right. You need to completely relax right up until the point you know it's gonna come out, and then push from the upper abdomen downwards, if you get me. Not too hard, because that makes breaking up the shit more likely and having to start over. You want to get as much out in one push as you can, so start soft, and breathe through it.

  5. If you've got something important to do, like an event or party, and don't want to have to think about shitting, two suppositories make the entire world fall out of my arse (do not do this too often – it becomes less effective with frequent use for anismus sufferers from what I can gather) and leaves me with decent relief.

  6. When you go for a shit, remove your trousers/pants, underwear and socks. If you are flexible enough, literally pull your knees up and rest your heels on the rim of the toilet. This is a weird piece of advice, but one that has proven invaluable for me.

  7. Last thing: stay mobile. I've recently finished uni in London for the year and have been extremely bored in my village family home. Played Skyrim for a week straight pretty much and barely moved. Made the problem so much fucking worse.

  8. If you do not get regular exercise (walking is fine) and if your diet is shitty, this problem will get worse and rapidly. I just had to take sodium picosulfate (industrial-strength laxative, swear to God) for three days to go for a shit and I write this to you in the aftermath of an agonising episode on the toilet.

  9. Botox injections are nothing to be worried about and are 80% effective in the short term, and almost 50% effective in the long term, IIRC. If you have the access (I envy you if so), go for it!

    EDIT: Regarding number 9, if the botox injection is not effective at all, there is usually a hidden prolapse that would not show up in regular tests – keep that in mind!

I should probably make a throwaway but fuck it. I bought Psyllium Husk at Haggen (my semi-local grocery store) and you can also buy it on Amazon.
