I have chronic constipation. what can i doabout that.

See below: Constipation can present in several ways in general we would not expect constipation to present itself in an association with your menstruation. Several questions would help diagnose your problem. To include how often you normally move your bowels. Do you normally have a problem with constipation. Do you normally have pain in your pelvic and lower back area when you're constipated. Is your menstruation regular? Was this menstruation worse than your usual?
