Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. In most cases, simple changes in your diet and lifestyle can help relieve symptoms and manage constipation. Somethings that can help, is a high fiber diet, exercise and water intake.  If you feel that it still won’t help, you need to see your doctor and explain what has been happening.

Hope this was helpful?
