Thank you for your question.

What is your age and gender?

Since how long are you having this problem?

Do you have any other symptoms like pain or cramping in the abdomen?

Do you have any other medical problems?

Are you on any medications for anything?

Please let me know.

Hi This is Dr Stan and I will help you today. You are describing a common problem with many people. The cause is usually not enough fluid intake and too little fiber in your diet. Increase your fluids (water) intake to 8-10, 8 ounce glasses daily and increase your fiber either with fresh fruit and vegetables (green leafy) or a fiber supplement like Metamucil. I hope this is helpful and I am here to answer any additional questions.
