The only way to make your stool softer, so it could pass normally is to change your eating habits, introduce a lot of fiber, even if it means taking fiber supplements and drinking a lot of water-2-3 liters a day. I have to say you are lucky you don’t have hemorrhoids!

You will also have to start exercising regularly and moving a lot throughout the day.

You didn’t say if you were male or female, if you were taking any medications, if there are chances you were pregnant because all of these things can cause constipation.

If muscles in your digestive tract are two weak, they won’t be able to move the waste and your colon will absorb all the water and won’t leave anything for the stool to soften. It will become hard and it won’t be able to move.

You need to learn more about foods that are high in fiber and introduce them into your diet and you need to drink a lot of water with excessive fiber intake. If you don’t drink enough water and you do eat a lot of fiber foods, you may still end up constipated.
