Ok so I have to write here asking for some advice cause I don't understand what is happening to me now.I used to have D and loose stools and flatulence and cramps (bad cramps in the beginning, mild after a few months) in the evenings and mornings. Few weeks ago I thought maybe it's from the BC pills I was taking so I stopped them about a week/10 days before. After I stopped the amount of gas/farts went down and the stools got firmer. ...and firmer ...and firmer....That right now I am constipated. I am not bloated though, I have some farts in the evenings and some in the morning but I can hardly have a BM. The stools are so hard and thick I just cannot push them out! ...though I know they are right there ready to be evacuated. I am mostly one day on and one day off.... I am also afraid to push too hard as I had a fissure there some time ago and it hurt like hell...so I don't want it to come back again. What should I do now?
