It may just be one or two of the foods you are eating. Lots of people have food intollerances, may want to try an elimination diet to see if anything you are eating is causing it. My friend had the same issue and found out it was wheat doing it. She kept adding more fiber, but when she stopped eating wheat everything majically got better. There are nutritionist and allergists that can help with an elimination.

She is probably just constipated. This can happen if they have had a lot of fiber in their diet and not enough water among other reasons but these are most common. I have the same problem with my dog from time to time. Usually a little bit of milk gets things softened up and going. Hope this helps.

its bound to come out sooner or later, all that stuff in ur body cant stay in there for long. i do believe, however, that your bodies digestive system is malfunctioning (obviously). have you talk to your doctor?

You might be eating too much fiber. Try eating what your parents gave you when you were growing up as that is what you are used to. If you are on any kind of pain medication that can slow down your digestion to the point ot constipation and so can lack of enough water, be sure to get 8 glasses a day. Are you being too impatient for a movement; try not to expect one every day. However, if your stool is very hard, you may have to pull it out by hand. If it is that bad, please see your doctor for a full exam as constipation is quite unpleasant. Good luck.

could have whats called fecal impaction, make sure that your diet is high in fiber and water. Also make sure to eat low fat foods as that can make it harder to pass your bowl movements. Also when you do have a bowel movement , i know this may sound gross but look at it to make sure there is no blood, or foul odor or that it looks off color. If its any of the 3 it could be some type of condition. I would also be very careful when taking a laxative because they can be harmful to your intestinal system I would recommend getting gentle laxative, also try prune juice i know it might sound nasty but it helps to soften the stools. Also it could be medications that you are taking , if you are taking any
