In brief: Difficult to pass

The treatment depends on its severity.
If you have mild symptoms, you will benefit from increasing fiber in your diet - fruits, veggies, and high fiber cereals. Also, drinking more water will help. If you have more severe symptoms, you can add a fiber supplement like benefiber. If you are still having difficulty, i would recommend speaking to your doctor before using a laxative or suppository.
