In brief: If...

You are having a tough time having a bm, having to strain to do so, and are having hard, formed stool, i would say the most likely cause is constipation.
Try increasing the fiber in your diet or supplementing fiber to see if this helps. If you're having to strain much, you can also add a stool softener as well.
