I usually strain to poop especially at the beginning, the stools are separate lumps. What is that meant?

Staining with pellet stools during bowel movements are signs for constipation, meaning stool is moving through your intestines at a slower pace than usual. There are many possible factors for consideration.
1. Lifestyle and medical conditions: such as eating too much or too little fiber, hypothyroidism, physical inactivity, obstruction around the rectum.
2. Medications: such as antacids, anticholinergics, diuretics, and certain pain killers,

In Chinese medicine views, the frequency, form and color of the stool are important information for evaluating the internal environment.

Dry and lumpy stools that are difficult to pass can easily be experienced by child or aged people. It is often associated with heat accumulation or inadequate fluid in the intestines. Individuals with intestinal problems or after major illness can also have this.

If you often have this problem, see a doctor to identify an underlying cause.
