Spotting on active combination pills. Dr ruled out everything but uterine polyps. Is it possible it could be related to constipation & pocket in bowel?

In brief: No

vaginal bleeding would not be related to bowel problems.
most likely you are having breakthrough bleeding that could be controlled with some short term estrogen

In brief: Where is the blood?

If the bleeding is coming from the vagina then it is not related to constipation or a problem in the GI tract.
If the blood is coming from your anus then bowel causes are certainly possible.
