What leads to constipation and late period, together?

I would consider: pregnancy test at least 1 week after your late period, if your period never came. If negative, test again in 1 week.

Pregnant?: These would all definitely be possible signs of pregnancy. First off, take a home pregnancy test to see. That would be most common thing to link all your symptoms.
