Thanks for your query.

Its possible that you are suffering from constipation or impacted stools. You may want to try a stool softener or a laxative for a week.
Increase greens ( veggies and fruits) in your diet.
Drink plenty of fluids close to 12 glasses a day.

If your stools are normal, then you should get a per rectal examination by primary physician to rule out other causes like hemorrhoids and fissure.

Hope I answered your question.
