Ok, i have seen things on this board before about this, but cant quite remember. I have had these kinds of stools before, but this time, i have had them for 3 days straight. When i go, i am straining, and out comes these long, pencil thin stools. I am also on my period(sorry guys) So i dont know if it could be related to that or not. Drives me nuts. I feel so constipated. Could these pecnil thin stools be from straining???? Please somebody fill me in!!!!
