Constipation after Sex - Please help!

My boyfriend and I are at separate universities so during term time we see each other on average for 2-3 days every two weeks. I find that during that time I get badly constipated after sex.

It can be really uncomfortable as I won't be able to go to the toilet for the majority of the visit (and if I do it's never that much). However I normally have a bowel movement within a day of stopping intercourse.

What could be causing this?! I'm a little worried and annoyed as summer's coming up and we'll be together for 3 months solid - I can't go that long being constipated! It's definitely not a problem with fiber in my diet (I get plenty of it) or not being comfortable around him as I definitely am (even about these sorts of things!)

Please help!

Re: Constipation after Sex - Please help!

HL887: The only thing I can suggest to you is to add some magnesium to your diet. Take some supplements during these times. Increase your water intake. The fiber can't do much if there's no water to help it move. Increase eating "P" fruits. Pineapple, prunes, pears, peaches, etc. Eat more nuts and dark chocolate. They also have magesium. Beets are a good vegetable to get you going too. Of course greens are important.

It's not uncommon for our bodies to be off balance when we're out of our norm. I get this way too when I visit my in-laws. I don't think it has anything to do with the sex, it just has to do with the environment you're in. See if the magnesium helps.
