In brief: Pain with BM
Dyschezia/painful bm's often are the result of insufficient fiber and fluid in one's diet.
High-fiber fruits & veggies &/or fiber supplements (fiberchoice, metamucil, etc) + adequate fluids will soften feces & ease bm's. Stool softeners (not laxatives) may be needed initially until increased fluid/fiber is working or if you're on narcotic pain meds. See doc if persists or bleeding occurs.
