Your rectum: Isn't designed to remain pristine after having a bowel movement.

You need more fiber (psyllium husks), magnesium, and water. ...Read more

Use COOL WET toilet paper; it's more efficient. ...Read more

Increase fiber/fluid: Take more fiber and increase your fluid intake. Raisins can help, fruits/veggies have higher fiber content which helps absorb fluids and promote better bm's.

Yogurt, etc. ...Read more

It depends: There is tremendous variation between the number of bowel movements normal people have each week. The important thing is for you to know yourself - if you usually have a bm every day and now you haven't in 3 days that is significant.
