Our expert says:
Yes stress can lead to constipation. Try to eat all bran instead of corn flakes, as it contains more fibre. You can use a cup of warm water with lemon to stimulate bowel movement in the mornings, or use a gliserine suppository. I don't think you should try to avoid using the toilet during the day, if the need arises, you should go to the toilet. Use toilet covers or antiseptic spray/wipes on the seat if the work's toilets are not clean enough.
