What causes impacted feces?

Hello, I found impacted feces in my anus and I managed to get it out. This is the second time I find this in my rectum. The only real lifestyle/habit change I ve had is that I ve been using err.. toys for my anus during masturbation. Would that cause impacted feces? What could I do differently.
