It seems like since I have gotten older, I have problems with constipation. Is this normal?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Constipation is mainly caused by inadequate intake, not enough fiber in your diet, stress, lack of exercise or activity, hypothyroidism and many other. If you have experience constipation more than two weeks, it's best to see your doctor. Hope this was helpful?

Here are some resources for you
