There has been no pain & no real need to go so I wouldn't consider myself as being constipated. Well tonite I was determined to go so after a bit of waiting I managed to squeak out a very tiny amount. It was very soft and a maroon color. It didn't really look like blood to me but I always think of blood as being bright red so who knows. Any thoughts? READ MORE

    Hello,

     

    I'm not a doctor, but I would think that not having a bowel movement in 8 days is reason enought to call your physician. This is not typical and they will be best able to advise you on whether you should be seen or not.

     

    Best,

    Elizabeth
