No one wants to talk about this shit (couldn’t resist), but we at Excy say bring it on. During our early Excy research, we have consistently heard from women that one of the most common reasons they seek some form of exercise is to help with constipation and bloating. Our male friends told us they go 1-3 times a day (more power to them I guess). But when it comes to women, whether it was an exercise bike, indoor spinning class, yoga, jump roping, running, or even walking, women consistently highlighted the need for exercise as a way to help regulate their GI systems to our Excy team.
What we found!
- Many women experience blood on the toilet paper when they have a bowel movement. Most treat as normal and just go on with their day and try to improve their diet, drink more water, or exercise. We say…call your doctor. As identified by WebMD, there are many reasons for blood in your stool, but either way, you should get it checked out because it can be a sign of a serious health problem.
