Plumbing in the Home/What's wrong with my toilet?

Question
Hello, my toilet is having issues! when I flush, it won't go down properly. The bowl fills first and then SLOWLY drains to the point of sucking air. It sucks air for a couple minutes, then it refills even slower with water from the tank. It started this about 6 days ago and I can't figure out why. Please help!

Answer
Your toilet is clogged and stopped up.  Auger it or plunger it.  To plunger it, make sure you flush it and it fills to the top first and then plunger like crazy.  Its ALSO possible its not the toilet but your main line / septic tank but still, its clogged in some manner.
