Check your diet, you may be eating something that is constipating you, or not getting enough fiber in your system. Have you started eating something new? Try adding some fiber, fruits, and more water and see if it improves.  Since you are not having any pain, I suspect this is just constipation, so diet is very important.  Don't overdue it on the fiber or it will make it worse.

Its not a quick fix- like western medicine is supposed to be, but this will help. It sounds like you just have plain old gut build up in your intestines that happens for many reasons like food intolerances, alcohol/certain drug use, diet, exercise, whatever. We were not design for a lot of the stuff we like to do to ourselves and enjoy somethings that humans haven't evolved enough to partake in...
You should do a colon cleanse. These days that can mean anything under the sun. But what I am talking about is fairly moderate and many people I know find great success in it. I think the easiest way to do it is with a kit. That way you do not have to take drastic measures in dieting and lifestyle change. Many cleanses want you to cut out everything except for whole grains like quiona, amaranth, millet etc. and raw veg. That means no fruit, now processed foods, caffeine, alcohol etc. Go with something like Colonix, its the best, and yes it will cost you- but look it up. Its gross and you may have to do it every 5 years- but it will cure you. You will feel like a new person.
