Vantina asks:

Today I had the oddest experience. A first for me at least. I went to the toilet, assumed the pooping position, and could not get it out. I decided I needed to give it a little help with the toilet paper and found I was feeling something very hard. It began to get painful and I had to resort to finding a rubber glove (from the first aid kit) and some lubricant to get this stuff out. My poop had the hard hard consistency of thick clay. I've never had clay-like poop before! The only thing I can think of is that yesterday I had a migraine and I took three Excedrins when I would normally take Advil. Could this be caused by the extra strength headache medicine? Obiously I'm now not sitting comfortably and I have a wad of TP in my butt crack to stop the bleeding.


Thanks for the question.

The Exedrin more than likely had nothing to do with your constipation. I would venture a guess that you have not been getting enough fiber in your diet lately and not drinking enough water.

Either that, or you belong to the species Tachyglossus aculeatus (Spiny Anteater), whose diet of ants and dirt leads to their characteristic clay-like feces.

Hope this helps!

Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.

Got a question for her?

Wow! First someone writing in German and now French. Saw Spanish on another page. We seem to be getting a lot of foreign language posters on here. Wonder if there is a program to translate for us English-speaking one-language wonders.

I found Jesus! He was behind the sofa the whole time!

Yup. One of the most convenient is the Language Tools option available right at the bottom of the Google page. Copy the text you want to translate, select from-to, and presto. Here's what got returned for the above post:

"I am 25 years old and am often constipee I take rectal injections is this harmful in more I urinate breeches thank you"

You get the idea, anyway.

My poop almost always is the consistency of clay. It is no big deal, unless there are other things going on like bleeding, pain, or other mishaps.
