So here goes...(long a rammbly )...This probably sounds strange but I don't normally get constipated until earlier this year where following a really strange dragging, bearing down sensation in the pelvic region that was so intense it had me phoning NHS Direct feeling like my innards were dropping out . It went away followed by a period a couple of days later which might explain it having looked at other messages on MN...possible tilted pelvis or some such. Anyway, since then I had constipation which brought on piles which had been hiding since having DD years ago. I eat loads of fibre anyway but this didn't help. I tried fasting for a couple of days and drinking lots of water - okay afterwards for 2-3 days then constipaton again. then I tried laxatives on 2 separate occasions - same as before. So, you ask, where does the sex bit come into it....well, constipation went away after about 3 months, but after a vigorous bout of sex last night it's back. Does "pushing the furniture" have an impact on the bowels? The sex might have been rather enjoyable - only happens rarely - but not if it brings this on - anyone know of any connection??
