In brief: Sounds constipated

Sounds like hard, dry stools.
Make sure you get in adwquate fluids, and fiber (whole grains, beans/legumes, fruit, fiber), are physically active. If any health issues, check with your doc-can be due to meds, hormones, gi, gyn issues as well. Otc fiber supplements (with water), stool softeners, laxatives like miralax, (polyethylene glycol) stimulants like senna, cascara, osmotics like magnesium are not 1st line rx.
