As a woman, have you ever had to strain and push so hard in the bathroom that you felt at that moment like you were undergoing one of the most severe tortures in the world? Did you, in the process, wonder if it had to be just you going through all this immense discomfort or if there were others. Well, the odds are that it wasn’t just you are going through all that. Constipation is a common health issue. Bringing the facts closer home, it is even more common and severe among women.

Data Shows Women Are More Affected By Constipation

Recently I came across some interesting data. According to this research, I was way more likely to have constipation than a man. This would only get worse as I grew older. As you can imagine, it was not the most cheery piece of news I could have expected to read that day. I am not a big fan of being constipated, and I absolutely would not recommend getting constipated least for the severe discomfort that accompanies it.

Constipation Can Get In The Way Of Productivity

Constipation can be a severe problem for women. Take, for example, like me; you are a busy working mother who has to look after young kids. The last thing you want is getting knocked out by constipation. I agree that there are worse things that could happen to one than getting constipated. Still, my point is getting constipated can be a pretty nasty thing to happen to a woman. When it often occurs, like in chronic constipation, it can become something of a nightmare.

Two In Three Victims Of Severe Constipation Are Women

However, as the numbers show, constipation is something of a fact of life for many women. An unwelcome and unpleasant one, but sadly a common one. Women are 2-3 times more likely than men to get constipation. Two out of every three cases of constipation severe enough to require medical attention will be women. The chances of women getting constipated increase with age and also during specific periods such as pregnancy.

Being Aware Is Essential!

These stats don’t make for happy reading. However, though the scenario they describe is grim, these statistics are vital. Important because they show a prevalent problem that enough attention may not have been given. Sometimes, constipation only presents with unpleasant but not severe effects (the loss of productivity and the straining while using the bathroom are certainly annoying), especially in chronic cases where this predicament can pose worse damage that is repulsive also serious to your health. Therefore, awareness is essential. As a woman, we should be aware of the conditions our bodies are prone to. This awareness empowers us to better protect ourselves against it. A problem recognized is one that is half solved. That was the complimentary lining I picked up while processing the facts.

Conclusion

Constipation is a health issue common among women and gets more prevalent as we grow older. As I have pointed out in this post, it is not great fun to be prone to such an uncomfortable thing as constipation. However, being aware is the best state to be as it makes for pro-activeness. We must seize the opportunity of being informed to better protect ourselves against constipation and its attendant effects. What causes women to go down with constipation and is there a solution to it? The answer is YES! And you’d be surprised at how simple the solution is to this huge health predicament.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
