lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query. To help proper bowel movement, it is necessary to increaase the intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Plus take adequate water. Also should include things like fenugreek seeds, flax seeds about 30 to 40 g a day. If nothing helps then go for some medications which soften the stools. Thanks.
