You need to consult nearest gastroenterologist for clinical examination and for relevant investigations.... And also fellow bellow advices Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which support the bladder and bowel...To perform Kegel exercises, contract the muscles that you would normally use to stop the flow of urine. Hold the contraction for three seconds, then relax for three seconds. Repeat this pattern 10 times. As your muscles strengthen, hold the contraction longer, gradually working your way up to three sets of 10 contractions every day...drink adequate water and add fibre like fruits and vegetables to your diet...
