Ladies, it’s time to open the bathroom door wide open. Bowel health, and particularly bowel health issues, aren’t always the easiest conversations to have. For many women the subject is considered “taboo”, especially when discussing with members of the opposite sex. And if you feel uneasy chatting about it, you’re not alone: according to the Dulcolax® Bowel Health Poll, seven in ten Canadians feel comfortable discussing their bowel movements with their doctor, but only two in five feel comfortable discussing the subject with their partner, and even fewer would discuss it with a close friend, parent or co-worker.
