It's most likely a mass of hard dry stool that needs to pass before it becomes a bowel obstruction. Try using a glycerin suppository to soften the stool. Put a glove on and put vaseline and lots of it just inside the rectum and just outside the anus. Put a clean glove on and put vaseline on the tip of the suppository(short pointy end) Lie on your bed on your left side with your right leg bent up close to your chest and left leg straight out on the bottom of the right leg . Insert the suppository inside your rectum as far up as you can get it without hurting yourself. Lie on your side until you get a very strong urge to have a bowel movement. This can take as little as 20 minutes or long as an 1 hour depending upon how hard and long it has been sitting inside the rectum. When you do get the urge to have a bowel movement do not strain or force the stool out. Take long slow deep breaths hold it to the count of 15 and exhale slowly through pursed lips and keep doing this until you have passed the hard stool. This will probably take you about 30 minutes to be able to pass the hard stool this way but it will be so much painless then excessively straining and forcing it out. Now in the future to prevent this from happening all the time 1) eat a high fiber diet 25-35 grams a day 2) drink 8 8oz. glasses of water a day 3) make it part of your daily morning routine to sit on the toilet everyday to have a bowel movement,allow yourself 30 minutes to do this. 4) Take a fiber supplement like Citrucell in the morning and after school to help keep your bowel movements soft but formed and help maintain regularity. I have had lifelong problems with constipation and if I had done these daily routines everyday then I could have saved myself a lot of years of the pain and misery of not being able to move my bowels on a regular basis.
