Hi Rekha,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

The frequency of stools passed by an individual varies among different individuals. Tight stools results due to loss of fluid from stools as a result of constipation. Unless and until you do not have pain or blood with stools, there is no need to worry.

And yes, this issue can be resolved by proper diet, plenty of fluids and medications. You would need to consume high fibre diet and drink plenty of water preferably warm water to increase the bulk of stool and to soften stool. This should help you.

Medications that can help you are:
- Stool softeners such as Syp Lactulose
- Bran product which can increase the bulk of stool

In addition, please involve in physical exercise, yoga and transcendental meditation. It will benefit you.

Hope this helps.
