Constipation: In a young person, serious problems are rarely found. I would suggest trying an over-the-counter product called MiraLAX. Generic version is polyethylene glycol. You might try it daily at first, then may only need it once every few days to maintain a normal pattern. This is a tasteless powder that can be added to almost any beverage. Including water.
