In short, fiber, fluid and exercise are helpful. Remain active, hydrate well, and have a good balanced diet and you should do well.

Try an over the counter product called miralax (polyethylene glycol). Good luck.

I would recommend an otc product MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) which is a very safe and gentle stool softener. Take at least 1 capful daily as directed and increase or decrease amount based on your bowel movements. I would also recommend to eat a healthy diet that is high in fiber and water.
