What could be the problem and what all can I do to have a normal bowel movement and prevent this from happening again?

In brief: Try these

Ideally we should have a bowel movement/ bm everyday to flush out the toxins in our stool.
But with some people, their average bm is every few days. Drinks lots of liquids, eat more fiber fruits and veggies, take some stool softeners & laxatives if you're constipated every now and then, get more exercise. Hope you feel better!
