In brief: Constipation/medicin

You can try stool softner like docusate sodium 100 mgm once or twice a day, and if that does not work try MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) along with it one packet or two a day.

In brief: Prune juice

It's old and not very sexy, but it often works.
I also suggest more exercise.
