Squatting Toilet Stool
Long story short: your insides (rectum and anus) are lined up better when you are in a squat position. If it’s hard for you to pass bowel movements, you can use a stool to bring your feet up which puts you into a squatted position. This one adjusts to 7” or 9” (I recommend 9” for most of my clients). It also has a built in foot massager and is made of bamboo – which has a relaxing back-to-nature vibe.
Squatting stools have helped many of my clients who have biomechanic difficulties with constipation.
I also highly recommend that most of my clients solve constipation through diet, hydration, exercise, lifestyle changes and therapeutic techniques.
The reason why I talk about constipation with my clients is that prolonged constipation often involves pelvic floor dysfunction. And pelvic floor dysfunction often causes pain with sex. So when people ask me if their constipation has anything to do with their pain with sex, my answer is “yes!”
Different ways of addressing constipation and pelvic floor dysfunction may work better for you depending on your situation. For help figuring out what is best for your unique situation, just reach out, I’d love to help you.
