Constipation is a condition in which you typically have fewer than three bowel movements a week and bowel movements with stools that are hard, dry, and small, making them painful or difficult to pass. The frequency of bowel movement, among healthy people, varies greatly ranging from three movements a day to three times a week. If more than three days pass without bowel movement the condition gains clinical significance. During such time, the intestinal contents may harden, and a person may experience difficulty or even pain during defecation.
