    The connective tissues are vital in the performance of peristalsis, which is the movement needed in the bowel to expel waste in the body. Bowel problems are more common than bladder disorders, especially in those with Hypermobile EDS. a fewtimes rectal and genital prolapse can occur, which can interfere with the ability to pass a bowel motion. Connective tissue is found throughout the entire human body including the bladder and the bowel. Any abnormalities in the connective tissues can disrupt how the bowel works leading to motility issues and constipation, plus in extreme cases paralysis of the digestive tract known as ‘gastroparesis’.
