Poop Stuck Halfway Out

Having your poop stuck halfway out or stool that gets stuck at the end may be one of those topics most people wish not to discuss. These issues however, are much more common than you may think. If this is something that you have had for a while, it is always best to consult with your doctor. Especially if you are pregnant, or if your baby or child have this issue.

Dealing with as many gut and digestive issues as we do, we get many questions on this topic. In this experts guide, we’ll focus on three main topics:

  1. Safe natural remedies you can try at home.
  2. Common mistakes to avoid.
  3. Finding the cause. So you can prevent this from happening in the future.

How To Get Poop Out When It’s Stuck

Below you will find a few natural remedies we have found very effective and safe you can try at home. We also cover common mistakes you should avoid.

1. Cleanse Your Colon

Oxygen colon cleanse (Oxy-Powder) as its name suggests, releases oxygen in the entire digestive tract to soften and loosen dry and hard stool and waste buildup that often gets stuck, so they can be flushed out naturally by the body through normal bowel movements. Unlike laxatives, oxygen colon cleanse works in a completely natural and safe way. It doesn’t force your body to make a bowel movement or cause laxative dependency. For this reason, oxygen colon cleanse is considered safer and more effective than fiber and herbal laxatives and is the preferred choice of many natural health practitioners.

2. The Overnight Flush

A very popular way to use Oxy-Powder that has helped many people, the overnight flush drink:

  1. Squeeze the juice of ½ organic lemon.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar into 16 ounces of distilled water.
  3. Drink before bedtime with 4-8 capsules of oxy-powder on an empty stomach away from any foods or other supplements.

Expect the next day to have a series of bowel movements. The poop stuck halfway out or at the end are usually the first to go. Most people feel a significant relief when they pass these out.

3. Water Enemas

Enema for poop stuck halfway out may work in some cases, but may not always be the best solution. The idea is simple. You inject water into the lower part of the colon through the rectum. This typically triggers one or more bowel movements, which can help to release the trapped stool.

If are familiar with enemas, you may already know what to expect. So this may be an option to consider.

On the other hand, if you have never done enemas before, you may want to consider other less invasive options. Doing enemas properly requires practice where you learn how your body responds to the process, and adjust it based on your experience. Doing enema for the first time when you are desperately looking for a quick relief, may not provide you the results you are looking for.

Common Mistakes To Avoid

Poop stuck halfway out or stool that gets stuck at the end can make very logical people try risky methods. It is just that uncomfortable. Here are the most common mistakes known to cause additional issues.

  1. Digging poop out with finger:
    Its graphics and its not pretty. Many people however, try to do it as a desperate attempt for relief. The results in many cases, is injuries. This method also known as Manual Disimpaction should only be done by medical professionals and only if needed. Its just too invasive, uncomfortable and may cause issues. Especially considering that there are much safer options.
  2. Laxatives:
    Ongoing use of laxatives, even natural ones, can lead to laxative dependency.
    This means that you won’t be able to make regular bowel movements without the use of laxatives.
    Ironically, laxative dependency is one of the leading cause of constipation. You take laxatives to help you with constipation and you end up with a situation that you are constipated because of the laxatives. For this reason, we do not recommend using laxatives.
  3. Do not Force It:
    Trying to force it out, straining or pushing beyond what you would consider a normal effort can seriously backfire. You can get injured and cause other damage that cause much more serious issues.

My Poop Is Too Big To Come Out And Hurts

If this sounds familiar, there are two main things you should consider:

  1. Are you constipated? This may be the reason.
  2. Are you eating too much fiber? Fiber can help with constipation in some cases. Eating too much fiber however, can cause constipation. Insoluble fiber adds bulk to the stool. Eat too much of it, there’s a good chance your stool is simply going to be too big to come out. This can definitely hurt.
