For this you have to relax , remove your anxiety and start learning the art of pooping. Here are some tips for that.
If all above fail then there is computerized therapy called biofeedback therapy. I want you to follow above tips first, and let me know if improvement; if required, I will suggest when to go for biofeedback therapy.
