Herniated Bowel????

Ok, I need help figuring out what may be wrong with me. I am chronically constipated...have been my whole life (I'm 41)...even as a child. I try to eat fiber and drink lots of water. Nothing seems to help. 2 pregnancies made me even more constipated and gave me small hemmoroids. I have a bowel movement every 3 days or so but I always use a fleet enima to losen and break things up...otherwise I would have Hemmoroids the size of Saturn. The big problem is that when I do have a bowell movement it seems as though the feces actually goes PAST my anus into a "pocket"...I have to massage upward from the outside to get it back to the exit! I think I have had this a while which is why I have always had to strain so hard. Has anyone ever heard of this? Thanks for any help you can give me!

I think its called a rectocel. What it actually is is a hernia of the colon.
