In brief: BM less often

it is different for different people.
Depends on what is your usual habits. So, if normally you go 3 x per day then if you skip a whole day you feel constipated. For sure if you don't have BM after 3 days it's official. Also, even you are regular but stool is hard and you have to push - that could be called constipation as well. Increase water and fiber in your diet.
