Big hard poop that hurts

every time I have to take a poop, its a battle. Its so big sometimes that I end up having to pick it apart to get it to pass. its like hard clay. I end up tearing my butt every time i go. how can i stop this cycle?

Re: Big hard poop that hurts

Are u getting enough fibre and water intake in your daily diet?

If not, that could be the issue.

Eat plenty of juicy fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe, plums, peaches, pears, etc. If you can't get fresh fruit often try eating a big bowl of apple sauce everyday, or maybe oatmeal with raisins. Drink plenty of water.

For more immediate relief use some stool softener (make sure it says "stimulant free" or else you may get cramping).

Try Miralax, I have the same problem. (Just went poopy a few minutes IS like a battle without taking something)
