What causes difficulty in defecation?
It takes me long time (30-40 minutes) for defecation. Stool passes 3-4 times but with a gap of 5-10 minutes in between and at the end some mucus passes on. In fact, I don't feel relaxed unless and until that mucus goes out completely. This is happening for more than 3 years now. Please advise.

It looks like you have irritable bowel syndrome.
But I would like to have some more information before I can give my final opinion.
1. Do you have abdominal discomfort?
2. Do you have weight loss?
3. Do you have symptoms after going to sleep?
4. Any other medical illness?
5. Any test done so far?
Kindly get back to me with these information and I would give my opinion.

You need to take fiber supplements
Apologies for the late reply...
Based on the replies, I do not see any alarming signs. Some amount of mucus is normal only.
To ease your bowel movements, you need to take high fiber diet and drink lot of fluids.
You need to take fiber supplements. You can try cremadiet one scoop twice a day mixed in 250 ml of water.
I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
