After Years of Issues... NO MORE PROBLEMS!
Dear Squatty potty staff, my husband has had severe issues and irritation for years, many doctor visits and steroid suppositories daily. I came upon the squatty potty on the internet while doing some research. I am an RN. I bought the squatty potty and talked two other coworkers into going in with me to buy bulk for cheaper! Since my husband has been using the squatty potty he no longer has any irritation or problems. My coworkers love their squatty pottys as well and state it makes it much easier to go to the bathroom!!! Thank you.

I am about 5 months pregnant and bought this around 4 months pregnant. Before I bought it I was really struggling with pregnancy constipation and was trying every trick in the book to try and resolve it. And most things would work for a week or so, then I would become resistant to it and would have to try something else. This is the only thing that has consistently helped and that I haven't become resistant to. It's normalized my movements to being almost as good as before I got pregnant. Thankful for it and definitely recommend it to anyone who has sluggish, irregular or incomplete movements.
God bless you!
I want to thank you for developing the Squatty Potty. Since I was a child, I had difficulty passing my stools. As I got older, I would have to manually disimpact the rectum, and it lead to chronic, painful rectal inflammation (proctitis), severe internal and external hemorrhoids, and I was a couple of months away from having surgery to remove the rectum and to have a diverting colectomy placed. I also had to use daily suppositories, Witch Hazel soaked on the toilet paper, and twice daily Metamucil. All this time I thought my problem was related to constipation, but it was actually due to me trying to push the poop against a blocked dam. I prayed and prayed for an alternative to surgery. Then I saw you on Shark Tank. I ordered the Squatty Potty from Amazon, and have been using it for about a month, I had no idea my problem was due to the puborectalis muscle not being relaxed. Now, all my symptoms have completely resolved.

My father has Parkinson's Disease. Apparently, one of the side effects is difficulties using the bathroom. I saw the Squatty Potty in a store and bought it for my dad; it was, coincidently, his birthday that day. He didn't think there was anything to smile about when he got a Squatty Potty for his 65th birthday . . . until about 3 hours later. About an hour after his birthday dinner, he was grinning from ear-to-ear like a kid (I can't remember the last time I had seen such a big grin on his face). I asked him why he was so happy all of a sudden, and all he said was "It worked!" with a big grin on his face.
Thank you Squatty Potty!
I am a healthcare professional recently diagnosed with endometriosis, interstitial cystitis and pelvic floor dysfunction. My women's health physical therapist recommended to use a box or some books to prop my feet up when going to the bathroom. I heard of the Squatty Potty through a social media support group. I was hesitant that I'd notice any difference using it. After about a month or so of using consistently, I can honestly say that I am not straining nearly as much to produce a bowel movement like I was previously. I've been able to use less medication for constipation so I'm thrilled, my only wish is I would have found it sooner! I love the fact that it fits under the toilet when not in use so I'm no longer tripping over a box when I'm in the bathroom.
My husband has had severe constipation for the past few years. He is in his 20th year of Parkinson's and we are not sure if his intestines are affected by the muscle issues or if it is his medication that is causing the problem. Regardless, it has become so bad that we were honestly afraid that he would have a heart attack while trying to use the bathroom. We tried Miralax and stool softener and nothing worked. We bought a squatty potty and it was like a dream come true for him. Not only did it make it effortless for him to use the bathroom, but it was over quickly and easily.
