yellowish discharge before bowl movement

My stomach was feeling crampy and when I needed to have a bowl movement, I was constipated. Buy I passed gas and a yellowish jelly-like discharge was excreted during a bowel movement. What is this and how do I prevent it?

try adding more fiber to your diet.

If it only happened this one time I wouldn't really worry but if after adding fiber and it continues you may want to make an appt with your doctor.
