To go to the toilet manually?

I have a constipation problem so I tend to stick my fingers up my bum and manually pull poo out sometimes. Obviously I give my hands a good wash afterwards with anti-bacterial gel. I let this slip to DP last night and he said I was disgusting and wierd and he couldn't stop going on about it. I didn't think it was a big deal and no different to pulling bogies out of your nose.
AIBU?

Your shit must be pretty solid if you can do that.mine is all squashy and would just squidge up

bogies are a different matter as you can get your nail behind them

YABU... get yourself to a GP for some proper constipation advice and treatment.

what has your GP said?

manual evacuation should not be a regular necessity - but rather an extreme

Docky81 Sun 03-Jul-11 19:57:37

mine is rock hard sad that's part of the problem.

YANBU - had hideous constipation when pg and had to pull it out too <yuck> What can you do when it's half in/out and agonising? Admit I shared and it went down like a lead balloon - think some men like to imagine women don't poo/fart or anything not like a 'laydeeee' - odd!

Whitney famously said that Bobby Brown did this for her... maybe you could suggest this to your DP?

buzzsore Sun 03-Jul-11 19:59:46

YABU to share this with your dp and with us. And improve your diet, fgs.

Lactulose is my tip de jour - HTH

Tchootnika Sun 03-Jul-11 20:00:21

CES you ruined my little joke. angry

Did you hear the one about the smelly baker. though?

CogitoErgoSometimes Sun 03-Jul-11 20:01:00

Go on...

Tchootnika Sun 03-Jul-11 20:02:14

He kneaded a poo! grin grin grin

TheGashlycrumbTinies Sun 03-Jul-11 20:02:17

Yup, he kneaded a poo...

Look, why is this on AIBU?

Isn't there a chatboard more related to this?

Christ on a crutch, I nearly lost my supper just then.

well I just stick my finger and thumb up there and pull it out. Sometimes I have to dig at it for a while with my nail which I hate because the stain doesn't come off for ages sad There is like a little shelf up there too where it seems to get stuck so I have to guide it around there.

I've just taken some lactolose actually but there is a big lump of sugar at the bottom of the bottle and it puts me off.

(and I'd certainly wait until the DP was a DH before venturing information like that. It could make all the difference, that's all I'm saying....wink)

A lump of sugar puts you off! grin

Tchootnika Sun 03-Jul-11 20:04:34

Enough shit jokes for now.
Was just trying to help OP. (You know, 'laughed, I nearly shat', and that.)

MissVerinder Sun 03-Jul-11 20:06:03

Bloody hell! Get thee to an apothecary.

Seriously? The sugar puts you off?

Isn't that better than manual evacuation? Get some rubber gloves

Psyllium Husk capsules. Other than that recommendation I'm not engaging with a poo thread.
