Dietary fiber: Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables provide fiber which helps with regularity. Several servings a day for several days or as adjusted will show benefit or not. Fiber products such as metamucil can help. If those things have failed, several drugstore offerings such as brand names "colace" or "surfak" might help.
