This leads to a hard dry stool that is both difficult and painful to pass as well as abdominal discomfort and bloating. Stools should be uniformly smooth and quite narrow. If your stool has a cracked surface, you are probably suffering from mild constipation and should increase your fluid intake to prevent more severe constipation.
