Not tried anything as I thought it was not serious, however the frequency has increased.

How long the problem is there ?
What is the color of the jelly like substance? Does it come mixed with stool?
How many times do you pass stool?
Do you have any other symptom?

Waiting for your reply.

Thank you for the information.In most cases the passage of mucus is normal.But if it continues for some days an examination by doctor is necessary.There can be any inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis, or any local condition of anus like fissure , prolapse etc.You can read this link for more information.http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/mucus-in-stool/AN01296I hope this information will be helpful.
Please ask if you need any clarification.
