Constipation: If, despite good fluid and fiber intake, you have no significant urge to have a bowel movement I recommend taking daily senokotS which is a gentle bowel stimulant containing a stool softener also. Try to avoid chronic laxative use if possible. If you have urge but can't move your bowels, insert a dulcolax rectal suppository or fleets enema as needed.
