Our expert says:
2 days without bowel movements are not something to be worried about. Some perfectly normal people only have 1 or 2 bowel movements a week in total. So if your rhythm changes over the weekend, just relax and wait for your bowels to get back to normal on their own. Using harsh laxatives can damage your normal bowel function and cause nutrient losses. Try to remember to eat some boiled, dried fruit over the weekend and you won't have this problem.
