Fluids + high Fiber: You may be constipated if you are having fewer bowel movements than usual, it takes a long time to pass , and pass hard stools. Being regular is different for some, it can mean bowel movements twice a day. For others, having movements three times a week is normal. Cause may be poor diet, not getting enough exercise, or using laxatives too often.Dairy products may cause constipation in some.
