I've had a problem with constipation my entire life. Would taking fiber supplements help?

In brief: Yes...

Chronic constipation in an otherwise healthy young female such as yourself is either due to ibs (irritable bowel syndrome) or colonic inertia (slow transit).
Taking a fiber supplement along with drinking plenty of water is a good first step in trying to improve this problem. Good luck!
